If the current sales analysis offered at The Beat blog
is any indication, DC Comics are slowly losing any titles selling above 100,000 copies. The last one to truly come that close is Justice League of America, with Justice Society coming close at 99,000 copies. This does however confirm something I've been pondering at times, that the only reason why Justice League
sold as well as it did by today's standards is because the pretentious Brad Meltzer has an audience that's willing to shell out money for something that, to most others, was pretty dull. Another thing it suggests? That these people clearly weren't interested in becoming comic addicts.
Point to make: this is exactly why the companies have to start changing their approach, as writers who only seem to be favored for their ability to draw in crowds from another medium they're already working in are not the way to go. Ditto those who pull tasteless acts and then try only so hard to prove that they're not what we consider them to be as a result.
