DC Surprised to Discover Stormwatch Hasn't Been Cancelled

DC Surprised to Discover Stormwatch Hasn't Been Cancelled

The publisher quickly rectified that mistake by cancelling the series in April.

DC co-publisher Dan Didio discovered something unexpected on his desk when he entered his office this morning.  No, it wasn't an Eisner Award or a flaming bag of poo, it was a copy of the latest issue of Stormwatch. "At first I thought it was a joke," Didio told the Outhouse.  "I could have sworn we had cancelled that book months ago."  But a quick burst of emails confirmed that DC was still publishing the comic, and had a story arc lined up through April. 

Stormwatch has been one of DC's lowest selling titles for months, and has undergone multiple creative changes and radical cast changes.  While Stormwatch originally featured a mix of new versions of the Wildstorm characters and Martian Manhunter, the team was killed off earlier this year and replaced with a more classic version of the cast because of reasons.  The latest issue had less sales than an issue of Zenescope's "Big Boobs of Oz" comic.  

Didio was irate upon hearing the news that his company was still publishing Stormwatch, and ordered for the book to be cancelled as soon as possible.  "I mean, who the hell wants to read a Wildstorm book these days?"  Didio said.   The last issue of Stormwatch will ship in April, and will feature new artist Jeremy Roberts, whom DC discovered via their controversial Harley Quinn contest. 

In unrelated news, DC co-publisher Jim Lee took a personal day today upon discovering that his favorite comic book got cancelled.  While he declined to name the comic, Lee muttered that he'd get the last laugh when he finally finished WildCATS #1 in 2021.
