So long, Justice League Dark

Recommended Posts

You know it has not been cancelled but merely removed from subscription availability?

Or at least that's what the letter says.

Oh, I know--but that's frequently a sign of imminent cancellation, as it means DC no longer has faith in the series.

I'm not sure. DC seems really hesitant to cancel too many of their "New 52" books. If JLD really is gone, then I'd wonder how many other "New 52" books are getting the axe, as JLD can't be selling that terribly, not compared to some of the titles DC is still publishing.

They have to find replacement books for every title they cancel, as they want to keep a line of 52 monthly books for the foreseeable future, and this last batch of launches left a lot of be desired...Howard Mackie? In 2012? Really?

So, I don't think they have a lot of quality books waiting to take the place of any titles they cancel.

 

If they so cancel it, right when Lemire is taking over, I'll be disappointed. I'm not saying it's going to turn out great, but at least give the new writer a chance.

I hate how comic companies do that. Marvel was always doing that with books that they just put a good creative team on. The book was canceled due to the sales of the creative team they just replaced, but the books still get canned.

It would seem like the companies would at least wait and see if the new creative team brought in new readers.

Remember when they cancelled your Hellblazer subscription and gave you Batman comics instead?

 

We should call you Cassandley.

"They canceled my Justice League Dark subscription and gave me Animal Man instead...Oh wait, nevermind. That's not a complaint. Thank you, DC."

I sure hope not. Swamp Thing was on that list!

I'm sure there'd be more word out there and uproar if they were actually cancelling JLD (with Lemire coming on) and Swamp Thing.

I think DC and Marvel, too I think, are phasing out their subscription services, perhaps to increased digital availability.

They've been cutting back bit by bit recently.

 

Odd choices in replacements though.

From Mr. DiDio

Unfortunately we are cancelling certain subscriptions that don’t do not get enough mail orders to justify the subscription service. A best selling book does not always translate to a high selling subscription and there is very little relation between the two. t

 

Well, given some feedback, you might say that we reviewed the list and Aquaman might be “off the hook”.
