One of the few DC books I'm reading right now is Batman. I'm not exactly happy with the current direction but I also think readers are looking at pre new 52 though rose tinted glasses. Apart from Detective and Batman INC things were pretty dire at DC right before the reboot. I'm not reading much now but I can't deny right after the reboot there was a period where I was buying more comics than I ever had before, and a lot of those comics were great, at least for a year. Now things have settled in mediocraty again, just with a more messed up continuanity.
Personally I think it's basically business as usual; there are a couple of gems if your willing to shift though all the poo to get to them. This goes for Batman, DCU and comics in general.
