After 30 years, Britain's superheroes return

Coming a little late to the party, UK's The Independent reports on the revival of some of Britain's best-known superheroes, thanks to the deal between DC Comics and IPC Media. Here's IPC's Andrew Sumner:

"These are characters who have been talked about by UK comic fans for the last 30 years since they ceased publication. They were a fundamental part of every British male's childhood in the Sixties. It has been the equivalent of Spiderman and Superman slipping out of publication 30 years ago and, due to corporate complexity, not being published in any way for half of their life."
