Four more titles have been shown the door leaving DC with the new 48.


All of these titles have been on the bubble for a while. I am more upset over Blue Beetle getting the ax (again).

I'm glad none of the titles I've been collecting have been cancelled yet. I do think Savage Hawkman will not last another year, though.

Bummed that Legion Lost is getting cancelled. It's been a good title... lot of intrigue and subplots that tie in to Ravagers, Superboy and Teen Titans. Hope it ends well. And at least we still have Legion of Super-Heroes.

Grifter was a great book to start with... then Liefeld got his hands on it. Not surprised to see it go with the way the writing's been lately.

Considering the condition that non-comic periodicals are in, we're lucky that Marvel and DC are still printing so many comics.

I guess the market isn't strong enough to support two Legion books. Legion Lost is a decent read, but it is probably time to put everyone back in the main title. Legion of Superheroes isn't the same without Wildfire, Timber Wolf, and Dawnstar.

I will miss Frankenstein....A lot. It is a shame that so many good books don't reach a bigger audience. Frank is one of them.Sad

Didn't read any of them. Had no interested in reading any of them.

Of all the books cancelled by DC since this craptastic adventure, I've only read one (Voodoo), and that was more due to the pretty art than any kind of storyline.

A helpful suggestion to DC: put your ego in check, and bring back Steph and Cass. Cross Carrie over from Dark Knight, and make a new Batgirl(s)-themed title. You don't even have to call it Batgirls, since 1) you've got the Babs book and 2) you've decided that none of these three ladies have been Batgirl, or have even existed. Use Spoiler and Black Bat and Robinette or something. Give Carrie a new bird-related name. Cardinal. Hummingbird. Whatever.

Bring back Donna Troy. Hell, throw Donna onto Earth 2, and make a new Wonder Girl book. Call her WW on Earth 2, since Diana's a corpse. But bring her back.

I was surprised that DC did not use the New 52 as a way to bring back Ted Kord as Blue Beetle.

Every time they cancel a group, I fear that Red Lanterns or Red Hood will be among them. I don't keep up with sales or, pretty much, what other readers are saying about the titles, so for all I know, these two of my pulls could be on the bubble for the next cut. I am actually surprised that New Guardians has lasted this long.

yeah, I think these will probably be in the next round of cuts - I think the current 3rd army (or whatever it's called) arc may drastically cut down on the number of Lantern titles.

I don't see how Green Lantern can possible hold 4 titles. 5 if you could Earth 2.

And I never knew the Red Lanterns had that big a fanbase.

I think it depends on which Lantern you want as your MAIN lantern. Hal/Kyle/John/Guy/Arabic (he's Middle Eastern, isn't he?). Your main Lantern should be in Green Lantern. And maybe ... MAYBE ... a GL Corps book for the rest of them.

Don't forget there's usually a GL in the Justice League too.

The new GL's name is Simon Baz. He's an Arab American... grew up in Detroit. He'll be on the roster of the new Justice League America book.

New Guardians actually sells pretty well. Originally more the GL Corps and Red Lanterns. I'm not surprised this book has lasted at all.

I am surprised Grifter made it as long as it did.

It was a great book until Leifeld got his grubby mitts on it.
