Default Why No Letter Pages?

Marvel has them for quite a few of their titles. I see other smaller publishers have them. I think it's time for DC to bring them back. What say you?

Doubt it'll happen, but I never thought they should have taken them away.

I miss them as well, but I think they've gone the way of the do-do bird.

Once the DC Message Boards went away, it's seemed like the only feedback they want is the quick little sound bytes that fit within a Facebook post.
"Loved it!"
"Hated it!"
"Wrap it up already!"
"More Barry Allen!"

It seems like the opportunity for DC to get any thoughtful or insightful feedback has been boiled down to the "like" button.

Because it would take away from all the self promoting advertisements....and NO ONE wants to give up those!

after i read this story (rumor), i wondered if it extends to other things that Marvel does like letters pages, etc...

If true, that would be a really petty policy.

Personally, I'd live to see them make a return.

They should never have been removed.
I LOVE getting out the old books from the 60s and 70s and reading the letter pages. There are some very familiar names that pop up from time to time too!

For books I really enjoy - current or old - reading the letters page is usually fun.

I love the letters in Manifest Destiny and Squirrel Girl, for example.
