DC Shocker: Six Titles Cancelled

DC has cancelled over 10% of its New 52 Line



Source: CBR

DC announced today that Savage Hawkman, Fury of Firestorm, Sword and Sorcery, The Ravagers, Deathstroke and Team 7 have all been cancelled.  The six series, which comprise most of DC's bottom sellers will see their last issues run in May.   

The announcement came along with a bevy of creative changes in CBR's weekly B&B interview.  Justin Jordan will be taking over Superboy, while the creative team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Grey will be taking over Batwing.  Also, Sterling Gates will be replacing Andrew Kreisberg on the Vibe series in May, despite Kreisberg recently discussing his longterm plans with the series.  We've also learned that Ales Kot will be writing Suicide Squad and Michael Alan Nelson will be taking over Supergirl.

All in all, today's announcements basically mark a further decimation of DC's Dark, Edge, and Young Justice lines, which have been whittled down to a handful of titles.  Bob Harras did hint that there would be more "Teen" titles, so I'm sure we'll hear more about that next month.

Didn't DC announce last week that they were taking Sword of Sorcery and Ravagers in a new direction? The following week they are both cancelled. Sword of Sorcery is the only title I'm reading out of the six cancelled. They really just did me a favor because I was looking for ways to make cuts in my pull list anyway.

I don't know how I feel about Michael Alan Nelson taking over Supergirl. What has he done? I'm sure Mahmud Asrar will be off the book next, with his recently announced Marvel work on Ultimate X-Men.

Of the six titles, the only one I was reading was Sword and Sorcery, and it was a pretty borderline series, to be honest.

I'm sad, but not surprised to see Fury of Firestorm go. That series had just begun to seriously improve.

Show me one person at DC who is happy to be working there.

The only, ONLY positive, is that Grandpa Joe DeFalco is off Superboy, but I dont have a clue who Justin Jordan is to begin with.

More cost cutting. DC is moving in an intelligent direction. 52 books is too many. 5 should be closer to what they're publishing in the DCU.

I'm sad that this is another book Dan Jurgens has canceled when he just came on board. Hard on creators to stay positive.

so i guess the big eclipso team 7 story is on hold :lol:

can't believe how badly the wildstorm properties have been regressed to their mid-90's status quo.

They ARE taking them in a new direction. They're taking the stories to the shredder, as opposed to the printer.

It's too bad about Sword of Sorcery. I have several friends that will be disappointed by that news.

He writes the badass Luther Strode series.

Yeah, that last issue really didn't do it for me.

These are all mercy killings with the exception of Sword & Sorcery.
