After seven issues, DC Comics has canceled GI Combat, citing the fact that "it's 2012" as the reason the comic wasn't marketable.

Many at the DC Comics offices were shocked and upset to learn that, despite popular misconceptions, it is 2012, and comics about army dudes haven't been popular in something like thirty years. The news comes only seven months after DC began publishing GI Combat, based on the misconception about what decade it currently is.
"What the hell are you talking about?!" asked a befuddled Bob Harras when we contacted him for questions, as Scott Lobdell walked past his office. "2012?! That's outrageous!" he continued, as he set up a lunch meeting with Tom DeFalco to discuss the six books he's writing. "There must be some other explanation," he finished, while reading a memo about Rob Liefeld leaving the company.
"Now leave me alone! I've got to get ready for our new die-cut covers initiative!" Harras stormed out of his office, shouting, "More pouches! Where will the heroes put their pogs!"
Despite the made-up protestations of the esteemed Mr. Harras, The Outhouse can assure readers that it is, in fact, 2012, and that December's GI Combat #7 will mark the final issue, ending the story featuring whatever the hell characters are in the book.

We applaud DC's attempt to reintroduce different genres to mainstream comics, but remind them that fans simply want to see some hard, erotic, totally heterosexual hero on hero fighting. Justice League vs. Teen Titans will be released in 2014.
