DCnU Shocker: Resurrection Man Cancelled, Grifter and Deathstroke Survive

Another victim of DC's chopping block revealed!



DC announced that Resurrection Man, the horror titled written by the popular (at least on the Outhouse) Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, has been cancelled as of issue #0.  The series failed to find an audience despite the cult status of the title character as well as the loyal following of its writers. The series will be replaced by a tag team of The Phantom Stranger and Swords and Sorcery.

Shockingly, Rob Liefeld emerged from the DC cullings unscathed as both Deathstroke and Grifter survived this round of cuts.  When approached for an explanation, DC head honcho Bob Harras allegedly replied "Rob Liefeld has compromising pictures of me.  DnA doesn't.  It's pretty simple to see which books weren't going to get cut."
