Well, that clears everything up. Dan is proud of Hellblazer. It was a great comic that everyone loved, so it made perfect sense to replace it with something people are predisposed to hate. Everything's settled then, right? Good. Move along now.


That was selling under 10,000 copies.

So much for everyone loving it. :roll:

I've been reading it monthly since #230, Milligan's run has been great.

Not great enough to lift it over the Mendoza line for sales, apparently.

Talk about selective numbers.

When something goes to shit on your watch, you need to fix it.

Dan lets Cass Cain, Steph Brown, Wally West, and Donna Troy atrophy.
Why not the Legion, too??

Sure, doing so is stupid.
But Dan's never had a stupid notion he wouldn't try.

Nacireman, no offense but if you think that cancelling a series that was outside of the DCnU and then merging it into the DCnU is a way to "fix it" then I am worried that you don't completely understand what the word fix actually means.

What do you expect from the guy people blame for fucking up the Reboot franchise and cancelling Beast Wars amongst other movements of idiocy?

I have to admit, I think it's ridiculous that people are fine with Watchmen being mined and whored out, but seeing a book getting cancelled for selling less than 10,000 gets them wound up.

It's another shitty move for people who like quality comics (although I admittedly never read the book), but y'know what plenty of you seem fine with some of the other marketing promotions so you have to accept this.
