Humanoids interface: The usually low-profile Paul Levitz emerges to elaborate on the newly minted DC Comics-Humanoids agreement:

"The European graphic novel is a venerable, beautiful artform, that’s not quite like what any American publisher does, and it’s never had any real effective distribution in North America on any significant scale, with a couple of exceptions like Tintin, but 98% of the stuff never really got anywhere.

"I think there’s a logical way for us to connect an audience that may now be ready for it with this material that is deserving of a greater readership in this country and Canada."
