It's actually SEVENTEEN titles!
The covers and solicitations for DC Comics' March 2015 titles are out. This is also the final month before CONVERGENCE begins (and DC moves their east coast office to Burbank). What's a little surprising in the solicits are the number of titles that are ending.
Some of the titles that are ending aren't a surprise. We've known the following weekly series would be ending in March:
THE NEW 52: FUTURES END
EARTH 2: WORLD’S END
What's more of a surprise, in most cases, is the following regular series are also coming to an end:
AQUAMAN AND THE OTHERS
STAR-SPANGLED WAR STORIES FEATURING G.I. ZOMBIE
TRINITY OF SIN
GREEN LANTERN CORPS
GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS
INFINITY MAN AND THE FOREVER PEOPLE
Some of these are part of the original 2011 New 52 line up. Others, just couldn't find their groove.
There's also another series ending:
INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US YEAR THREE
INJUSTICE will hopefully give way to a YEAR FOUR series. What about the rest? What's going on in the Green Lantern universe? All but the core GREEN LANTERN series are ending. Does this mean something big is coming in the next few months? It's a shame about SWAMP THING. We've wondered what would happen after Charles Soule left to be exclusive at Marvel. What about Batwoman? Where will she go next?
After the two-month long Convergence event, we could assume new titles will pop up. Hopefully some of these will simply relaunch with a new direction or something.
What are your thoughts on these titles? Were you surprised by any of these final issues? You can read the solicit text for the issues HERE.
