The New 52 has been out for a year now - check out this article for an opinion on how it has changed the industry.
From my standpoint, the New 52 was only a band-aid. While it did do some good things (and apparently increased overall readership), I’m still hoping for a stronger product from many of the DC titles. I’m talking about story.
Sure, people got stoked and curious about the new continuity - but did they really change much besides the number on the cover?
