Polygon recently ran an oral history of the New 52 effort from DC Comics. It features then DC Co-Publisher, Dan Didio, as well as a number of writers from the era. It's a fascinating article for a lot of reasons, in part because of what those interviewed considered success and good ideas, and it seems that at least one person seems to have some difficulty separating fact from fiction on a few points.
A lot of talent - writers, artists and editors - seem to have turned down Polygon's request for an interview, some even citing that working on the New 52/ Nu52 was so unpleasant, they'd rather not talk about it. So the number of voices that you'll see represented are minimal and probably well insulated from being seen as "difficult" or "willing to talk" by the current folks in charge. After all, it's a tiny industry, and speaking out of turn even about deposed rulers can still label you as a problem.
In my opinion, reading the article, it's shocking how little self-reflection has occurred and how little awareness at least Dan Didio has about how it all ended - eg: being shown the door in early 2020 - just as he was gearing up to do a redux of New 52 and literally needed to be stopped.
Well, here's my history of DC's New 52 publishing adventure as I remember it.
