Actually, while I recognize that the books are still being sold to some people, others have just given up on the whole DCU at this point, often precisely because of problems like this.
Yes. True. HOWEVER, it has brought in MORE people than it lost. You cannot deny, this has been a success for DC. Certainly from a financial point of view.
That's true, at least in the short term.

However that's not what you said in your earlier post. You said the complainers would buy the books anyway, not that the complainers would be replaced by new readers.
So your point is that my post wasn't nuanced enough? Of course some of the complainers stopped buying, as some of the complainers still do, as those DC has lost has been replaced by greater numbers. Is it short term? How are you defining short term? A year? Five years? All business has ups and downs. And when the numbers go down, the company will respond.
