Nielsen is doing another survey for DC.
DC Comics has hired Nielsen Survey Group to conduct a second survey about their New 52 initiative, this time focusing on certain...poorly received books. Ranging from cancelled series such as Hawk and Dove to more recent duds such as The Ravagers, the survey appears to be testing the water to see if any of these comics have any fans. It's interesting to note that both The Ravagers and GI Combat are on the list just after being released. Also encouraging is that low-selling but enjoyable titles such as I, Vampire and Demon Knights were left off the list.
Of course, like the last Nielsen survey, this survey has a fake comic, entitled Orange Ivy, to throw out answers from spambots and idiots. It also asks several questions about digital comics and whether anyone bothers to use them. Finally, it gives participants a chance to tell DC how they feel about the New 52 and Wave Two titles, so if you want a chance to whine about how the New 52 raped your childhood and that Power Girl's just not the same without her boob window, now's your chance.
