I think it's fallout from the bait-and-switch about Bruce's marriage to Selina. People on a lot of boards were SERIOUSLY angry about that.

The usual suspects are causing this -- that is, the speculators. They're pretty much in charge of the comics industry, and have been for a while.

Anyway I don't think it was hype about Green Lantern that made the property so popular for a while. I think it was hype about Geoff Johns.

Looks like the marriage debacle cost Batman about 15 percent of its sales, which had held steady for a very long time. That was just not a smart thing to do.

That's some serious slippage for Batman, as the backlash over his "marriage" sets in.

I don't think there are enough actual comics readers left to keep DC and Marvel in the comics business. They're basically selling overpriced products to speculators.

It's actually down to about 19K, but even that doesn't mean much. DC kept publishing Blue Beetle until it had dropped all the way to 8K. I wouldn't be surprised to see then do that here too.
