Paul Levitz to make NJ appearance next month

Via Dan Veltre, a Legion fan and the owner/operator of Dewey’s Comic City in Madison, NJ (who, back in the day, was a member of INTERLAC and was a co-CM for a time):

It’s a bit early for this announcement but we couldn't wait to let everyone who reads this in on the news that PAUL LEVITZ, the former President and Publisher of DC COMICS, and the writer of the new LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES series will be here at Dewey’s signing copies of LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1 on Thursday, May 20th, from 5:30pm until 7:30pm. The relaunched Legion series, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1 arrives the day before Paul’s appearance, on Wednesday, May 19th and we’ll have plenty of copies of that issue (and even a few copies of the variant cover) available for Paul to sign. Besides being the writer of the new LSH series, and running DC COMICS for many years, Paul is also the writer of some of the most classic and best remembered LEGION stories ever, notably the outstanding Great Darkness Saga, starring the LSH & Darkseid from 1982. This will be Paul’s first area creator appearance since returning to the creator side of comics. More information over the next few weeks.

There once was a writer named Levitz
A master of the multi-level plot knits.
Now he’s building at last
On DC’s buture’s past –
Will he see if a “Great Lightness” fits?

The Levitz years will always be my favorite period of the LSH (Next to Shooter's teenage years). At 57, I feel like a school kid as I await his new work.
