I don't think there are enough actual comics readers left to keep DC and Marvel in the comics business. They're basically selling overpriced products to speculators.

It's actually down to about 19K, but even that doesn't mean much. DC kept publishing Blue Beetle until it had dropped all the way to 8K. I wouldn't be surprised to see then do that here too.
