DC made comic history today when the company announced a new Infinity Man and the Forever People series and then followed up with an announcement that they planned to cancel the title in the next ten to twelve months.  "I'm really excited to write and then cancel Infinity Man," said new series writer/DC co-publisher Dan Didio during the most recent DC All Access.  "It's always been a dream of mine to cancel two series that I write. Makes me feel like both the man and an oppressed creator."  

Keith Giffen will co-write and co-draw the series with Scott Koblish, which will re-imagine the Forever People as foreign exchange students from New Genesis who discover a multiversial threat on Earth.  

"People have been clamoring for a revival of a cult series," Didio explained to All Access as to why he's bringing back the Jack Kirby characters, which previously appeared in a short lived series in the 1980s.  "So I'm happy to write that revival and show them what idiots they are when I have to cancel it."

When asked if he thought that the expected poor sales were due to his poor writing as opposed to the character's popularity, Didio held up his hand to his ear.  "I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of me telling you to fuck off."  Didio then flicked off the camera and walked off the set of DC All Access, leaving co-hosts Blair Herter and Tiffany Smith to awkwardly smile at the camera for a bit before moving on to talk about how cool the new Batman: Arkham Knight video game will be.

Infinity Man and the Forever People #1 will be releaed in June, and will probably get cancelled between December and February 2015.
