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.
