It was DC that planted the seeds.
It was Marvel that grew the trees.
It was Image that scorched the lands.
And DC blasts the ruins with sand.
As of this writing, the DCnU has just started with the release of Justice League #1. And as I enter a comic shop with slight interest, I gaze upon piles of unsold issues covering the shelves like a tumor on the mind. Whatever customers there simply look at these new comics before going for what Marvel or an indie publisher has in-store. Even when checking a day later, these issues remain unsold and cluttered like maggots. DC may have wanted their rebirth to start with a bang, but it seems to have ended up being a murmur at best.
