A Note from Diane Nelson about DC Comics – The New 52

When I put in place the new DC Entertainment executive team in February of last year, I asked them to think big and be bold – to adopt a “no fear” attitude toward the business we love. We set out to reinvigorate interest in comics, bring in new readers and make our characters and stories more accessible to the widest possible audience, all while respecting the core fans who are the foundation of our company. That’s exactly what the DC Entertainment team has done with the unprecedented roll-out of DC Comics – The New 52 and the launch of same day digital comics.
