DC's first "New 52" series featuring a new character has been cancelled.
As DC's solicitations begin to trickle out, we're beginning to learn more about which books will be surviving through April. We learned yesterday that both Animal Man and Batman: The Dark Knight were cancelled. Now, Newsarama has confirmed that Talon has also been cut, bringing the number of cancelled books up to three. Talon's last issue will be #17.
Talon introduced readers to Calvin Rose, a reformed Talon of the Court of Owls, and was the first New 52 series about a new character to the DC universe since the reboot began in 2010. Originally written by James Tynion IV, Tynion left the series to begin working on Batman: Eternal, which will also feature Rose as a central character. Tynion was replaced by Tim Seeley, who will write the final issue of the series. Talon was among DC's poorer sellers, with less than 19,000 sales last month.
