DC misses opportunity... 

Rich also points out this happening with the magazine "The Resident":

The editor of the magazine, it seems, attended a convention at the Expo Center at the Garden last year and saw artwork for an upcoming Paul Pope book ("100%"). Depicting what looked like a futuristic New York, he asked about reprinting the artwork on the cover of an upcoming Resident, with full acknowledgement, publicity and plugs for the comic and DC Comics.

One DC employee handed him details of who he'd need to contact. When he did make contact, however, no one returned his calls.

Stuff like this makes me mad because it just seems so unnecessary and unprofessional. I can't help thinking if it was Tokyopop or Viz involved, they would have sent out some sort of big press kit the next day...
