Any other non-points you care to share?
Another thing: how do we know this new continuity will last even ten years, let alone twenty? As mentioned upthread, DC's gone overboard with reboots and crisis crossovers in the last decade. This could be just another DC event, albiet with a little more marketing. Granted, I don't see a return to the previous continuity.
But I will say that if DC was really having sales problems, then they brought it on themselves. Continuity wasn't the problem. Crappy comics were the problem. Also tons of character deaths, lots of grimdarkness, and, for the most part, a general joylessness in the DCU. Jaime Reyes' first series was so refreshing because it went against that. I find the current crop of books to be more of the same, honestly.
But things could be worse. Instead of bringing in Liefeld, they could've hired Greg Land. Pornfaces for Catwoman and Starfire! What do you say to that?
Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Jaime Reyes' first series may have been refreshing.. but for some reason after issue 20 it dropped like a stone.. >.<
D-Deadman! You killed Deadman!!
The New 52/DCnU sucks and I'm done with it from a macro perspective. No more event crossovers for me, no more JLoA and other teams, no more trying out new stuff.
I'm just sticking with the best of the Batman comics (Snyder and Morrison), and pretending they continue on the old DCU for me. And if Batman comics change too much, then I'm done with DC for good.
QFT. Yes they must and they do not have the talent to do that.The fact is, if they want to erase the classics, they must first surpass them.
And DC has shown us that they don't have the talent to do that.
And ultimately, the Pre-Flashpoint old DCU ended up a soft reboot for the DCU, many COIE changes were undone or softened. A unified nearly all-inclusive past-respecting (Morrisonesque) DCU is the way to go. Sad that Marvel has the better universe now, since they didn't reboot and do a poor reboot like this.

DC discarded their history, and now has none. DC will always be in the shadows of their past work.
