Outhouse Celebrates as DC Comics Reaches Major Milestone

It's the most blunderful time... of the yeeeaaarrr!

Hi folks. Jude Terror here. It's a special day here at The Outhouse, because yesterday, DC Comics announced the cancellation of thirteen titles! Thirteen in one month! Now, many of these will likely be rebooted in some form after Convergence, but still, that number pushes DC over a very important milestone, and I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate... with a song.

So I now present Outhouse Ace Reporter Zechs, who gathered the list of canceled titles and has put together a little tune for us. Zechs?

On the first day of Cancelus, DC Comics gave to me... Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Threeeee.

On the second day of Cancelus, DC Comics gave to...



I said this occasion was special. None of you want to hear Zechs' awful singing voice, do you? No, I didn't think so. Plus, Injustice was a maxi-series! It doesn't count! It just happened to rhyme!

No, we need a professional here. Someone used to rhyming dozens of random people, places and things and making a coherent song out of it. So instead, even though this was really last minute, I managed to score us a major guest star.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Piano Man, Billy Joel!




Blue Beetle, Nightwing,
Batwoman, Swamp Thing,
All Star Western, Birds of Prey, and Batman: The Dark Knight
Aquaman and the Others,

Green Lantern: New Guardians,
G.I. Combat, Klarion,
Captain Atom, Savage Hawkman, Titans Volume 1.
World's Finest, Green Team,
Static, Sword and Sorcery,
Deathstroke, Stormwatch, Larfleeze, Threshold, Secret Origins!

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it but we tried to fight it

Superboy! Men of War!
I can't take it anymore!

We didn't start the f...


Alright, that's enough, BJ. We don't want to have pay you royalties for this article. Here, have some eggnog. It's non alcoholic. I think.

As you can see, with the thirteen titles announced yesterday, DC has canceled 61 titles since the start of the New 52. Or, to put it another way, they've now canceled more than they started with in the New 52 reboot!

I think congratulations are definitely in order here. Sixty-one books canceled in just a little over three years? That's thirt per year! And sure, some of them ended intentionally or due to storyline reasons, but for the most part, it was low sales that killed these titles. And yet, DC is still sticking to their commitment to oversaturating the market with comics people clearly don't want to read based solely on a weird obsession with the number 52. That takes courage, and we applaud DC for their resolution.

And so...

We wish you a Merry Cancelus

We wish you a Merry Cancelus

We wish you a Merry Cancelus...

Now reset the counter!*


*This is an honorary counter reset, as voted on by the community to commemorate this milestone, and not an indication that DC specifically did something stupid today.
