    Why is DC promoting Vertigo?
    Because the serialized superhero titles do not sell past a certain date.
    The only post-Crisis superhero GNs which remained in print for years were the Morrison JLA collections. Nothing else.
    Yet I could shelve every Vertigo series GN, and watch them sell themselves. Look at what remains in print over a decade!
    The only failures: Swamp Thing and John Constantine (which have superhero/corporate comics DNA).

    So, yes, the New 52 is great, sells nicely, hits the bestseller lists, but how many of the “volume one” GNs will remain in print through 2016? How many of the DCU GNs from 2010 remain in print now?
