And you make my point.

Superman gets an occasional one-shot, limited run which is quite good.

But his regular books, the bread and butter that draws in the guy who buys every month, suck.

Superman hasn't been a top seller in his regular books since the Death of storyline in the mid-90s.

The quality you refer to in Earth One is seen on a regular basis in the ongoing Bat, Flash and GL books.

There is not a big market for Superman's books right now. Why is that?

Superman will be down to 2 regular books with the reboot while Batman and GL are up to 5 or 6 each. It's a defacto admission by DC that Superman doesn't sell. At least that is how I read it.
