So thanks to the ComicVine podcast I learned that the Great Ten was going to be canceled. I realize this is what happens when books aren't selling as well as the publisher would hope. My problem is that it was only 10 issues in the first place. They are canceling it one issue early.
 
What exactly is the point of this? All you are doing is hurting the fans of the series (it is excellent by the way) and depriving us of a proper completion. If you look at March's sales, Great Ten wasn't even the worse selling DC title, but it's the one getting canceled. 
 
I find this quite disgraceful on DC's part. Take your lumps and give the fans their last issue.

I understand how you feel, I felt the same way when Exiles volume 2 was canceled after 5 or 6 issues, it is stupid. It's also very sad, for a last issue it is canceled, but on DC's side they are thinking like business men, making comics costs money. But who knows maybe sometime in the future...

I'm not reading this title but this is very poor conduct on DCs part.  Give the readers their last issue! As Portrait has said, "How much money were they actually going to lose?".  Is one issue really going to put a hole in their pocket? I don't think so.

Haha thanks, but seriously, they'd lose next to nothing if they were to finish off all ten issues.  And if they don't put it out, they risk losing the readers that were buying this book in the first place. 
 
I read DC titles amongst others and cancellations like this rub me up the wrong way all the time.  Just knowing that they'd do this to the fans who have stuck with this book for seven whole issues pisses me off.

I kinda hoped to see the story of Socialist Red Guardsman and was disappointed when they finished on #9.

@Kairan1979: His story probably would have been one of the most interesting because of his beliefs and the conflicts with both the heroes and enemies of the story.

I find it ironic that the issue that was cancelled was the one featureing Socialist RedGuardsman. Dc couldn't capitalize off Socialism and Communism that in it self is hilarious. Maybe Dc can make the last issue and then make it free for the next free comic book day.
