November 1, 2011: If you're not a comic book reader, why not?

Poll Position In the latest Superman Homepage Member Poll we asked the question:

If you're not a comic book reader, why not?

The majority of respondents chose the last option, stating they were comic book readers. However of those who weren't comic book readers the most common reason was because they lost interest.

At a time when DC has relaunched their entire line of DC Universe books, it's interesting that these lapsed comic book readers weren't enticed by the new #1s.

I also find it interesting that the second most selected reason for not reading comic books was that they are too expensive. Most comic books from DC are now $2.99. You can wait a month and get them for $1.99. I wonder how much cheaper they'd have to get for these respondents to consider them value for money?
