PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Posting comments via Facebook or Twitter seems faster than a speeding bullet, but DC Comics is going back to its Silver and Bronze Age ways, returning readers’ letters to the pages of its comic books.

The New York-based publisher is bringing back letters pagers to its stable of comic books in March. DC Comics vice president of publicity David Hyde said Monday it’s a response to a growing chorus of requests by readers worldwide.

Letters pages were once common in comic books and gave far-flung readers the chance to weigh in on stories, heroes, villains and make requests about what should happen next.

DC Comics’ imprints also include Vertigo and Mad. Its characters include Batman, Sandman, Green Lantern and Black Canary, among others.
