    Fair.

    But "You're wrong" isn't exactly "agree to disagree", either.

    New 52 may have brought in more readers, but I prefer Marvel Now for keeping the continuity, while still refreshing things. I was just starting to get more invested in more and more DC titles, but post-New 52 I'm only still reading Batman and Fables.

    Based on Quality of Material? Maybe
    Based on rollout? Not so much.

Or vouchers for a free copy of any current issue of Comic Book X in the case of the movie or game of the same title?
    I talked to girl at work that had no idea comic books were even a real thing anymore. Now she collects Revival and Saga.
    In DC's case, I think they have opportunities to advertise to potential readers each week with shows such as Arrow, Young Justice and Green Lantern (when they're on). Doesn't have to be a big thing either. The New 52 did have some though which is where I discovered it. The thing that made me stop are go back (DVR user here) was I had no idea what that was I just saw flash past... an advertisement for comics?

    Having commercials for specific DC comics during the breaks of the Gleen Lantern, Young Justice, or Arrow shows sounds like a great idea to me.

    Its even worse if you bought one of the variants like I did. 10 bucks!! What a ripoff. But I just couldn't help myself. I love the cover.

    All I said was, if DC didn't reboot I would not care...
    A lot of the stories that you've mentioned, the ones that I've bolded, are actually still in continuity. Albeit, they probably happened a little differently than how they were written, but they still occurred in the post-reboot continuity.

    Oh, and apparently some form of Final Crisis occurred in the post-Flashpoint reality, and Darkseid is still dead. Can't wait to see how they bring him back, though.

    It's a good cover but I wouldn't have paid 8 cents for the issue.

    I didn't really hear about the New 52 either until hearing from fans. What I think would be kind of amusing is for Marvel or DC to make a "trailer" for one of their books. You know those commercials for certain books and they have voiceovers and scenes from the book I think? I could be wrong.

    There is no continuity at Marvel any more.

    Which is set 5 years into the past... well before Final Crisis.

    No, I'm not saying that. That "only" was a mistake. I meant that DC was promoting old writers who aren't fondly remembered instead of newcomers. And I say "was" because DC seems to have taken notice of that complaint.
