I am talking sales over all, comparing the period just prior to Nu52 to the time since. And they are still up. No one in DC Entertainment's head office is going to care about writers and artists walking out as long as Didio's leadership still makes them money.
Is he? I don't know that. I've never seen profit numbers, and I don't even know if TW breaks out DC as a division in its statements.
Sales, while they may be better than just prior to Flashpoint, aren't all the great by the standards of the past twenty years. And anyone can inflate sales number simply by offering more product, so how much of the increase if any overall over immediate pre-Flashpoint is due to simply offering more titles? Or more Bat titles?
And I think if you give Didio and company credit for increasing sales over pre-Flashpoint, you also have to condemn them for driving sales so low in the preceding years.
I mean how wonderful is it to fuck up so badly, then manage to increase sales somewhat over your low point?
