DC Slashes ProductionThe Dark Herald
From CBR (sorry about that):
“By the end of December, DC will have published 50 one-shots, miniseries or ongoing titles across the main DC Universe and Black Label for the month, including several Dark Nights: Death Metal and Endless Winter tie-ins and one-shots. In February — during Future State — that number drops down to 40. Both of these counts include several double-shipping titles, a scheduling tactic DC has been utilizing for several years, now. However, in March, DC is publishing just 34 single issues.
Notably, DC recently canceled such titles as Supergirl and Aquaman, while others, like Harley Quinn and Suicide Squad, are set to relaunch in March.
Ahead of the solicitations, DC announced new creative teams for titles such as Action Comics, Superman, Nightwing and The Flash.
It’s shocking to me that Aquaman will be off the rack when right now Aquaman is the DC film universe’s biggest money maker.
Now admittedly, the comic was being written by uber-SJW Kelly Sue Deconnick who famously sneered, “If you don’t like my politics, then don’t read my book. It’s that simple.”
Apparently, it was that simple.
DC’s pamphlet content is now slipping into in Indy territory. The Big Two of Marvel and DC is about to become the Big One of just Marvel.
And the comic book shops can’t survive on that.
