It’s a labor of love for die hard comic book collectors who look forward to each and every Wednesday to go to their favorite comic shop and buy their favorite books. In my opinion if DC wanted to attract new readers, I say create better stories for their characters. DC should get more involved in the cinematic universe that would help drive interest on the publication side of their business.
One can’t argue that the much maligned Aquaman character for example was a beneficiary of this reboot. Same can be said for lesser known characters as well. However, one can argue that the reboot wasn’t necessary in order to make him or any other character more enjoyable to read. And you didn’t have to make Superman boring and uneventful in the same process. Readers are attracted by the art and story arcs that compliment it. I long for the days of Wolfman/Perez team and stories like “Crisis of Infinite Earths” and events of that magnitude that drew me and so many like me in at a young age.
