Head of DC Comics: "We don't publish comics for kids. We publish comics for 45-year-olds"

On the last day of Comic-Con International in San Diego, in the last panel slot of the convention, First Second Books brought Gene Luen Yang and Paul Pope together to talk with an expectant crowd.

Asked by Yang if he had tried to do an all-ages book with a franchise character, Pope said he did test the waters, only to be knocked back. "Batman did pretty well, so I sat down with the head of DC Comics. I really wanted to do 'Kamandi [The Last Boy on Earth]', this Jack Kirby character. I had this great pitch… and he said 'You think this is gonna be for kids? Stop, stop. We don't publish comics for kids. We publish comics for 45-year olds. If you want to do comics for kids, you can do 'Scooby-Doo.' And I thought, 'I guess we just broke up.'"
