DC Comics President and Publisher Paul Levitz accepted an award on behalf of DC from the Guinness World Records, recognizing DETECTIVE COMICS as the longest-running comic book periodical in the United States. Pretty cool, huh? The event took place during SDCC ‘09.
“I’m proud to accept this award on behalf of DC,” Paul noted. “As the earliest surviving editor of DETECTIVE, a title which I edited from 1978-1980, I’m doubly honored to accept this recognition.”
