DC quietly announced that thirteen ongoing series will be cancelled in March 2015 leading up to its Convergence mega-event.  While almost all of DC's series are wrapping up their current arcs before Convergence begins, several books had the dreaded "FINAL ISSUE" tag in their solicitations.  Included in the cancellations is half of DC's Green Lantern line, Dan Didio's Infinity Man and the Forever People book, and recent DC titles such as Arkham Manor, Klarion and Star Spangled War Stories.  Also cancelled were Swamp Thing and Batwoman, both of which were original "New 52" titles (along with the three Green Lantern series).

The cancelled books are: Green Lantern CorpsGreen Lantern: New GuardiansRed LanternsSwamp ThingSecret OriginsStar Spangled War Stories Starring GI ZombieAquaman and the OthersKlarion, Trinity of SinInfinity Man and the Forever PeopleBatwomanArkham Manor, and World's Finest.

Also ending in March are The New 52: Futures' End and Earth 2: World's End. Both of those series were announced as limited series that would lead into ConvergenceBatman Eternal was also announced as ending, although series co-writer Scott Snyder has previously stated that a second "season" of that book is in the works. 

While the cancellations aren't exactly unexpected, we hope that all the creators affected are able to find new work quickly and that fans of the books will find other titles to enjoy.  The full solicitations will be posted here when Jude gets back from whatever important appointment he had today.
