NYT: Another Early Valentine to DC

DC Comics, writer George Gene Gustines and the New York Times continue their romantic media entanglement with yet another soft, gosh-wow profile article, this one on Paul Levitz's return to comics writing. I'm interested in the subject matter here, as it occurs to me seeing the subject header just how much of what DC does through titles like JSA reflects the basic approach to the material the DC's President and Publisher pretty much embodied as a full-time comics writer two and more decades ago. That's not always the case with the seemingly endless series of these relatively unsophisticated DC-focused articles at NYT. I wonder if when these pieces appear someone at Marvel ends up snapping at the folks from Motley Fool for no reason, then apologizing.
