This Thursday, May 20th, 5:30pm until 7:30pm

We are pleased and excited to welcome PAUL LEVITZ, the writer of the new LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES and former President and Publisher of DC COMICS to Dewey’s Comic City.  Paul will be signing copies of LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1 (arriving the day before Paul’s appearance, on Wednesday, May 19th) and we’ll have plenty of copies of that issue available for him to sign.

With the publication of the new Legion of Super-heroes series Levitz returns to writing comic books after serving DC COMICS for 35 years in various executive positions, the most recent being as President and Publisher of DC Comics from 2002 to 2009.   He has a long history as a writer on the LEGION having written the series from 1977 to 1978 and again from 1981 to 1989.

His appearance at Dewey’s Comic City is Mr. Levitz’s first area store appearance since resuming the role of writer. 

Paul Levitz was born in Brooklyn, NY, attended Stuyvesant High School and later enrolled in New York University.  During high school he published The Comic Reader, an early comic book fanzine for which he would gather comic book news items from various New York publishers.  While a freshman at NYU he was offered a position at DC COMICS and left before graduating.  He began at DC as a writer and assistant editor and later became editor of the Batman line of comics.  In 1980 Mr. Levitz became the DC’s manager of business affairs, created the marketing department, helped develop the earliest graphic novel format comic books, and eventually was appointed vice president and executive vice president before becoming President in 2002.

Everyone who attends the signing and has Paul sign a copy of the regular cover of LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1 will be entered into a raffle to win one of three FREE copies of the Jim Lee variant cover that will be raffled off that evening.

Come meet a true legend in the comic book medium!  Paul Levitz, Thursday, May 20th at Dewey's Comic City, in Madison, NJ!

Anyone get any news or juicy comments from Paul at this event?

DC comics just killed Legion chronology again.

As per Green Lantern #54, Sodam Yat is no longer the host to Ion.

This makes Legion of 3 Worlds work HOW?

We hope you're okay -- get well soon!

@RavenScholar: how does that have anything to do with L3W, which is set one thousand years in the future? that's a lot of time for sodam yat and ion to do a lot of things, don't you think?
btw, "thanks" for your spoiler...

Completely unrelated to this subject, but suffered a major crash recently, and while it's back up... everything since 2007 appears to have been lost. Do you have copies of any of the stuff you posted? (especially to do with the cartoon)
