"The results of last year's Nielsen survey of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 readers reiterated some of what we already knew, we have truly terrific fans who love our iconic characters and even some of the more obscure ones," DC Entertainment VP of Marketing John Cunningham told Newsarama Wednesday.

"The launch of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 galvanized the traditional fan base for superhero comic books: male readers, who were already-or have at one time been-avid readers of comic books. These fans are devouring multiple New 52 titles in print or digital format. The data supports our commitment to holding the line at $2.99 and most importantly telling great stories."
