"Why" is ALWAYS important. Without it, you lack anything but a basic, surface comprehension of what's happening.
Of course, the DiDio era cultivates product that salutes surface appearances and neglects depth (of the characters, etc.), so I'm not at all surprised that their defenders do the same...
"sales spike"? - Paint it as simple as you want to fit your idiom, but DC's sales spike is almost a year old. In my opinion, that's not a "spike" that's a "success".
As with DiDio-era DC, you're thinking short-term when you should be thinking long-term. These sales are already falling; they can't coast on "The New 52!" concept forever, especially when "New"-ness simply doesn't last.
"it is garbage" - The sales would indicate that 'one person's garbage is another man's treasure' (or in this case 'a LOT of people's treasure').
As with a certain creator's recent claim about the high sales of the '90s, you see a hype-induced surge in sales, and claim that it must be a demonstration of quality
. Again, this is all surface, all veneer, showing no real depth of understanding on your part."WHY" is ALWAYS important.
