DC Comics was honored by the Guinness World Records this past weekend, when it was pointed out that Detective Comics is the longest-running comic book periodical in the United States.  Paul Levitz, DC Comics President and Publisher, accepted the award.

And if you think that is cool news, Doctor Who was also honored as the most successful sci-fi series.

Longevity was another factor, since “Doctor Who” also holds the Guinness record for longest-running sci-fi TV series. A controversy broke out over that record in 2006, and “Stargate SG-1” later received the record for longest-running consecutive sci-fi series after completing a 10-year run.
