"We've lived through such extraordinarily interesting evolution in comics; I've been teaching a course in the American Graphic Novel at Columbia this term, this friend of mine Jeremy Dauber who is a professor out there approached me about teaching the course, and it brought me back to looking at the whole evolution of cartooning in America," Levitz told Comic Book Resources.

"How the form and medium evolves from comics to comic strips to comic books to what's evolving in the original graphic novel today, in some ways as another different media form with different kinds of audiences, different kinds of story-telling potential.

"It's a wonderful story when you look at the wide range of what that development's been over this last hundred years or so, yet we're really still at the beginning of the journey. There's a tremendous opportunity for comics to tell many, many more different kinds of stories, and that's still unfurling as we watch."

The first volume - subtitled The Golden Age of DC Comics - features one of the last interviews with the late Joe Kubert.

Levitz will reunite with former collaborator Keith Giffen on Legion of Super-Heroes in February.

75 Years Of DC Comics: The Art Of Modern Myth-Making vol 1 will arrive in January.
