We just reported that Animal Man's last issue is shipping in March. Well, another DC comic book has joined it in cancellation land. Gregg Hurwitz informed fans on his blog that Batman: The Dark Knight would be cancelled as of March 2014 as well.
Batman: The Dark Knight was started as a creative vehicle for David Finch, and was relaunched during the New 52, with Paul Jenkins coming in as a co-writer to keep the book on pace. The book became a showcase for A-list artists, with Alex Maleev and Ethan Van Sciver coming onto the book after Finch left. Gregg Hurwitz has been the writer on Batman: The Dark Knight for almost two years. Sales on the book were relatively strong, with last month's issue being the 38th best selling book in the industry with over 43,000 sales. Our bet is that the series being cancelled to pave way for the weekly Batman: Eternal series that will be starting up next spring.
