I wasn't aware that Superman Unchained was a limited. I've been so excited seeing Jim Lee drawing a book that it will suck when the book ends. Also I've been singing the praises of Nightwing since the reboot. Really sorry to see it go. Well that two less books that I have to buy now.

There was some hub-bub on CBR about it in October:

Quote:
UPDATE: 10-8-13 @ 7:15 AM - Scott Snyder has added on Twitter, "This ARC is 9-10 issues. Series is ongoing, and Jim & have said to each other, and publicly, we're playing it by ear in terms of whether we'll do the next arc, or let someone else. But we're enjoying working together a lot, so we'll see."

In an interview with artist and DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee published Saturday by the Los Angeles Times, current DC Comics series "Superman Unchained" is stated twice to be running for nine issues, rather than as an ongoing series as widely presumed. CBR News has confirmed with DC that while Lee and writer Scott Snyder's initial arc of the series will run for nine issues, details on the book's future past that point won't be made public until further down the line.

"Superman Unchained" is described in the article's introduction as a nine-issue series, and when asked about the status of "Batman: Europra," a project first announced in 2004, the LA Times added another reference to "Unchained" as a nine-issue series.

"That’s a project I began a while back when I was living in Italy for a year," Lee's quote reads. "It's still on deck. I've gotten sidetracked with other projects. I'm working currently on [the nine-issue series] 'Superman Unchained' with a writer named Scott Snyder."

"Superman Unchained" was first announced as an untitled Snyder/Lee collaboration a year ago at New York Comic Con. Three issues have been released thus far, and the series has been solicited through December's issue #6. No mention has been made in DC's official materials of the series having a finite run.

I'm really surprised by Nightwing cancellation. There are many more DC books that sell far fewer copies, plus Nightwing has lots of critical acclaim. Way to go, DC!

I see alot of negative comments on Nightwing's cancellation, but Kyle Higgins was done with his run and, personally, I'm glad they aren't replacing him with some mediocre writer just to continue the series.

My friend Meghan gets the art duties for the final issue of Nightwing! I'm so happy for her.

Thanks for the article. I rarely read any comic book sites, which may be odd for a comic book reader.

And DC just announced the cancellation of 6 more titles in April. Along with the end of Justice League America (which we already knew was being rebooted as Justice League United), DC has also announced the following titles will be ending:

Nightwing, at issue #30
Superman Unchained, at issue #9
StormWatch, at issue #30
Suicide Squad, at issue #30
Teen Titans, at issue #30

Very surprised be some of these. Not so much by StormWatch... the book's been terrible since Starlin rebooted it. But I thought the rest were doing ok. I find myself curious what titles will be replacing them.


I'll be losing 2 from this latest round of cuts - Nightwing and Teen Titans. Nightwing has been consistently good. I've been on the fence with Teen Titans but at this point I'll just ride it out. Oh well, saves me six bucks a month.

I am going to be bummed about Suicide Squad going. It started with checking out Harley Quinn in the title but soon became a big Deadshot and King Shark fan.

King Shark has been hilarious! Suicide Squad is the one I'm most bummed about.

Nightwing is one of the few DC books that I read. It has been fantastic yet as long as Didio is around..I always get the feeling that he has a "hit list" of characters...and that Nightwing is at the top of that list. If they kill him off (which Didio has wanted to do) I might just drop the few DC tittles I have on my list.

2 other titles I saw that are getting the axe with issue #29 in March are
Animal Man and Batman: The Dark Knight.

Can't believe Batman: The Dark Knight lasted this long. It was never really good but Finch's art kinda saved it. Once he was gone so was I.

Animal Man will be part of the new Justice League United title.

I felt the same way.

After that ridiculously long Mad Hatter arc, I dropped the book like it was hot. I enjoyed the Scarecrow arc, but otherwise it was just too much investment, and not enough payoff. Been meaning to dump my issues on eBay or something, but dunno if I want to follow through, or pick up the missing issues in my run to finish the set off.

I hadn't bought new comics since the early 90s and just got into buying new comics with the 52.i started off with flash,green lantern,justice league,batman,detective and the dark knight.green lantern it seems that every story would require you to buy into other green lantern series that I don't care about so it's gone.as soon as forever evil is over justice league will be dropped.now that dark knight is being cancelled that's another one down.i only buy one new marvel comic(iron man)and I'm thinking about dropping it.i seem to remember why I quit reading new comics now.

Another DC title that's getting cancelled. Never heard anything about this title. I guess no one else did to. The cover art looks good but everyone knows that art isn't everything. There has to be a good story behind the art to last.

I kind of knew that one wouldn't last, they try to bring back flops from the seventies thinking that they will do well.

I'm the opposite, I stopped in the late 80's early 90's but, I've been pretty much sucked back in full tilt. It's the prices that are killing me. I'm starting to just buy back issues from the past 5-6 years and read all them. I really like that geoff johns guy. I also enjoy the top cow image comics and they are priced within reason.

I guess Dc figures no one can write Animal Man as successfully as Jeff Lemire. I do know you can add Sinestro to the list of new on-goings. I swear, Green Lantern only has so many spin offs comics because they have cross overs every 3 issues.
