Times have been tough for comics lately. Despite owning every summer blockbuster for the last five years, print has been declining steadily with no hope of a boost in sales. It’s times like these when businesses have to make a change or die, and that’s exactly what DC Comics has done.
After mountains of speculation and controversy the #1’s are finally hitting and immediately flying off the shelves. Large titles such as Justice League are going into their third printings already after only being for sale for three weeks, while smaller, but very controversial, books like Batgirl already have orders for second printings.
