All hell broke loose today as DC Comics quickly tried to sweep a host of cancellations under the rug. The upcoming Convergence event taking place in April and May seems to be pulling some big change in the house of Batman and Superman. The news came from CBR, who announced the solicitations for March 2015. However, it’s hard not to miss some of these books, especially when realizing that some of the titles have been with the publisher since the launch of the New 52 in 2011, including Swamp Thing, Batwoman, Green Lantern: New Guardians and Red Lanterns. It also seems likely that Batman Eternal was planned to end at #52 this week, seeing as how that is now the magic number for DC Comics.
Here are the titles on the chopping block:
- Aquaman and the Others #11
- Arkham Manor #6
- Batman Eternal #52
- Batwoman #40
- Green Lantern: New Guardians #40
- Infinity Man and the Forever People #9
- Injustice: Gods Among Us – Year Three #12
- Klarion #6
- Red Lanterns #40
- Secret Origins #11
- Star-Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie #8
- Swamp Thing #40
- Trinity of Sin #6
- World’s Finest #32
Some of these books are downright shocking when considering how new these launches are, ongoings like Trinity of Sin, Star-Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie, Klarion and Arkam Manner barely got a chance to launch before being outright cancelled. Perhaps DC has something else in store?
Rumors have been flying around the internet, hinting at a possible relaunch for the company in June. With so much of their superhero line in limbo, this now seems like it is a must for DC.
