The Return of the Letter Column

You may be aware that DC has promised to keep the prices of it's regular series at $2.99 for the foreseeable future. To keep this promise, they are cutting the story content in each issue back to 20 from 22 pages. The extra space will be filled with an old standard: the letter column.

The letter column was phased out of comics with the last millennium, as fandom was introduced to the intenet. So letter columns were dropped in favor of cheaper production costs for comics. But now they, like Deadman, have been resurrected in the wake of Blackest Night. Does that spell the end of internet fans sites like, say, Boosterrific? (Rest easy; that's a rhetorical question.)

I happen to like letter columns. I've found that they provide a great contemporary commentary about comics that becomes even more enlightening as the years have gone by. Older comics are much enriched by the inclusion of reader's opinions and feedback. It's not just nostalgia, it's history told by the readers.

I know that it's against your nature, comic book fans, but speak up and tell DC what you think. I encourage you to write DC a letter about your favorite (or least favorite) title, character, or artist. You can drop them a line electronically at or the old fashioned way by mailing it to this address:

Letters to the Editor
DC Comics
1700 Broadway
New York, NY 10019

Let's make this a success. I hope to be reading your letters in the back pages of Booster Gold volume 2 when I re-read it in 2030, when DC starts publishing Booster Gold volume 3. Plus, if the letter column can return, maybe there's hope for a comeback for page numbers!
