How did New 52 Superman fans react (I don't track DC that much)?

Hell, what about fans during the Clone Saga? Imagine being told back then the Peter you followed most of your life was a clone? Marvel were serious at the time about making Ben Reily the real deal and it almost killed the book.
I don't really know what the best answer is. I'm just saying that there are readers who'll be in the same boat as we are if OMD Spider-Man gets takes out of the equation. Because of that, I wonder if creating output targeted to both audiences is the best call over changing one to suite different audiences, since then the interests of one faction aren't being sacrificed for the other.

Isn't top twenty pretty good in and of itself? (I don't know how comic sales really work that well.) Also thought that the official statement is that Slott's Spider-Man is doing good business. Also, if Slott was not turning in a selling product, wouldn't he have been canned already? Even if Marvel likes his stuff, they are first and foremost a business. (I mean, I'm pretty sure that this RYV continuation is being made largely because of the original one's sales. If RYV Vol. 1 had bombed, I'm doubt we'd be getting a sequel.)
