Honestly as someone who doesn't purchase Marvel and DC anymore and hasn't for years. The continuity, status quo and lack of focus really is only a feature of american comics (and not even all of them). You look at European Comic companies like Dargaud, Soleil and Le lombard and most of their publications are fixed limited affairs with a preplanned length and ending. It's usually 12 issues with a second series launching from there if the series is popular It makes for much better stories as the story and world always moves forward and the conclusion, if the series is good is satisfying. On the American side, there are plenty of other companies that don't suffer the problems that DC and Marvel have
Personally I've moved on. Instead of expecting Marvel and Dc to change their successful money making model. Why not simply look into other things? There's a whole world of great comics out there that get no attention in the north american market because of the Marvel/Dc monopoly.
