Heidi MacDonald was the first (I think?) to notice the strange inclusion of a 53rd title on the Neilsen survey of the New 52 books: Nerak (She’s now asking for people to send in their art for the imaginary book). Creators are already picking up on Nerak‘s inclusion, but that doesn’t answer how it ended up on the survey in the first place. Is it some form of control option, put in to disqualify those who claim to have purchased it (I did, and was told that there weren’t any further questions for me at this time)? It it some in-joke by a Nielsen researcher named Karen? Is it an unannounced replacement book for the first of the New 52 to fall?
…It’s probably the first of those, isn’t it?
