    Last Friday DC revealed their plans for September's 'Zero' Month along with the fact that we will be seeing a third wave of New 52 titles. The four new titles means that four existing ones will be seeing their final issues. JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL was already revealed to be ending and with the official solicitations for September's titles posted at DC's blog, we now know the what else is saying goodbye.

    I know its terrible to want a title to be cancelled, but i really want to see Red Lanterns or Dark Knight cancelled, im collecting both out of obligation rather than actual enjoyment, if they get canned i can pick up something new...

    Just when I thought about getting the Resurrection Man trade...DC shouldn't cancel so many titles...what they should do is stop giving Liefeld work.

    They need to just turn Batwing into a Batman International backup and replace it with a Red Robin series, already.

    I read like 5 or 6 issues of cap, I actually quite enjoyed it. It wasn't my favourite series, but still sad to see it go. I do quite like the idea of these series ending with the issue 0 though.

    Sorry to say but I am kinda glad that Captain Atom is getting cancelled. Is was getting way too 2001 Space Odyssey. I also heard Suicide Squad,Deathstroke, andBlue Beetle might be cancelled. I hope Deathstroke gets cancelled because his development as a lone assassin in his own series is starting to get boring. Deathstroke is a great villain but all he has been doing is facing off against petty marks or other wannabee mercenaries. Another series they should cancel is Firestorm, its not as weird as Captain Atom but I don't feel like its going anywhere. As for Green Arrow, I'm reaching that point where they should cancel it as well because the villains and stories he is mixed up with aren't all that thrilling. Sad to say but I think the axe should also fall on Red Hood and the Outlaws and Birds of Prey. You know I gotta better idea I will make a list of titles that should be cancelled and maybe you can agree or disagree. I look forward to your input users.

    I was enjoying Resurrection Man - not as much as I did his series in the 90s - but still enjoying it quite a bit. Sadly, I'm guessing Mitch will fade into obscurity again.

    I was hoping one of Liefeld's titles would get the cut, Deathstroke or Hawkman perhaps. No such luck this time, it seems...

    I didn't read any of them but I've heard great things about both. It's kinda sad to see series get cancelled because it just reminds you that even if you love a book, if someone in power thinks it's not selling well, it's over. Hope it doesn't happen to a few of my favorites.

    I hope they don't cancel Batwing. He is the only DC spinoff character that I enjoy post 52.

    On the Other Hand, I cannot wait for SoS! Truth to tell, I used to hate fantasy books, but I have learned to open my mind up to some crazy storytelling.

    the only books i currently read are aquaman, justice league, suicide squad, red hood and the outlaws, batman, and red lanterns. if its any of those i might just give up on dc entirely. liefield is terrible and one of his books should go....... deathstroke *cough* *cough* seriously i liked deathstroke when higgins was on it, the development was nice and the revival of grant was shocking. suddenly all that is gone wtf liefield just started over and ignored all that was set up in the last 8 issues, and the guy can draw worth a s***. im not sure if he is aware, but women do have spines, mens arms are not larger than their heads, 200 pouches is not cool, and people have feet not little triangles. i hate liefield.

    The ONLY title I know of that should be cancelled is Blue Beetle. It's a great comic that DC screwed themselves on. WAY too much Spanish. As bad as I would like to be, I'm not bilingual, and if I was, Spanish would not be my second language. I was truly disappointed with the title.

    As for the titles, I never read any of them but I am surprised Voodoo was on the list, the way everyone was talking about it is sounded popular. As long as they don't cancel Supergirl or Red Hood, I don't care.

    I was curious what the sales numbers for these three series were. So I thought I would post what I found.

    Resurrection Man 8 14,998

    Captain Atom 8 11,701

    JLI 8 30,396

    And then by way of comparison:

    Batman 8 130,602

    The Walking Dead 96 36,931

    These numbers are just for one month so I don't know what the trend was (I assume downward ;) ). And these numbers are just Diamond sales to comic shops (No digital). So my question is: What is the cut off for DC? if JLI is doing 30,000 copies why not let it stick around a while? If anyone has any incite on this I'm all ears.

    Here is a link to where the numbers came from http://www.icv2.com/articles/news/22842.html

    So they are cancelling Voodoo? What a shit show that comic turned out to be. It never figured out what it wanted to do and decided to kill off a few characters, which did nothing good for the story. Though I did like certain elements of it.

    I am not sure how Red Lanterns is staying afloat.

    Ok DC, that's it. If your just going to continue cancelling the books I actually like, then your wasting my time I'm just going to take my custom else where. That's right, consider your self dropped.... even Batman.

    Man, Resurrection Man was a great book, So was Captain Atom (though i'm not surprise either of them got cut). Voodoo makes sense, since besides Stormwatch I'm pretty sure most of the Wildstorm line has been doing pretty poorly both critically and commercially, which isn't too surprising considering the imprint was a 90's Jim Lee creator owned project and most of the series from that line worth reading existed thanks to writers like Warren Ellis revamping the whole thing, making it readable.

    That said, It saddens me that these two books get the ax when absolute crap like Batman: The Dark Knight, Superboy, Legion Lost and Red Lanterns are still around. I'll never understand public opinion, I guess

    Sadly, good riddance to Voodoo, Ron Marz's first four issues were amazing, but when Williamson came on he just crashed that series right through ten icebergs. It was beginning to come around a bit, but not nearly enough.

    Captain Atom started off so bad, but its recently been amazing, sad to see that one go, but I only recently caught up, so my heart wasn't in it too much.

    SUPER bummed about Resurrection Man, that one hung around my top 15 (out of all 52.) This set of replacements doesn't seem quite as solid as what we got in the Second Wave. Swords of Sorcery seems like it has unique potential, and Talon has Guillem March doing creepy former brainwashed assassin as he does best with Scott Snyder; but Phantom Stranger has Dan Didio and 'exploring his origin' against it, and I can't muster up a single ounce of interest in Team 7, PLUS it's got MORE skinny Amanda Er.

    I'll give all a shot, sure, but I'm a little cautious on two, especially since we lost 3 solid series this time, and only one crappy one.

    FEAR NOT!

    The axe will fall many more times.

    There were two thirds of the original "New 52" that I would not risk a dime to look at.

    I know that DC and all it's "eggheads" thought that they had it all figured out...

    but, I can almost get a gallon of gasoline for the price of one comic book!

    I'd save a lot more gas if I had something to read at the house worth the price!

    I'll be watching my gas tank more than the slop that DC is offering these days.

    That "Brave & Bold" moment when a bunch of people decided to mess with the "Classics"... has produced nothing I want to read nor pay for.

    After 45 years of reading comics... I feel betrayed.

    I read Ressurection Man, Captain Atom and JLI. I was thinking of dropping JLI but the other two were solid books. I'm happy that other series were saved in their places but I would have liked that other series got cancelled. Like Grifter and Deathstroke...especially with the team 7 series
