Captain Atom?!? I know it was a slow build up but why DC? WHY?!?

Is there no justice for Charlton characters? With JLI cancelled he can't even be added to a team roster.... cause God knows Geoff won't add him to the mainstream JL.

This is a sad day indeed. I loved the art on the CA series and all I really needed to see was Cap taking on some villain in the New52 with some potential, like the Parasite, or another of Superman's more powerful foes....

I read the first 5 issues of Resurrection Man but quickly lost interest in it. The magic from the first series just wasn't there the second time around.

And am I the only one who get a morbid sense of entertainment watching deadweight titles get picked off? I love scanning the solicits for "FINAL ISSUE" blurbs. Every time a bottom dwelling title gets the axe, the winds of change come along and something newtakes its place.

Because somebody realized it never should have been published in the first place.

Heresy! The JLI was going strong off of Justice League: Generation Lost and THAT set-up could've held it's own series. It's because of the fucking reboot that this series lost steam and couldn't hold up.

Agreed. I think the title we GOT shouldn't have been published. It had its good points, but they were none too great, and I spent most of the time lamenting the fact that they totally THREW AWAY the momentum they built with Genration Lost. IMHO, that series is the ONLY reason this one even got made, which makes it all the more absurd that they decided to not only totally ignore IT, but to retroactively wipe out the entire JLI run as well.

Yeah I agree if we did have the JL:GL setup and including Judd Winick as the writer I think it would've kept steam. The whole Reboot thing really hurt. Though I absolutely love JLI and it has made August General in Iron one of my favorite characters and Guy did a lot of badass shit in it and OMAC is in it too, I think it could've been better.

I picked up the first 6 issues of JLI and enjoyed them, but I think a team filled out with better members would have done it some good. Batman was good in it, however I'd have rather seen Nightrunner or Chief Man of Bats take his place when he left.

Captain Atom would've been nice to see in the team before it's cancellation, and after seeing B'Wana Beast in the first issue I was hoping he'd join sooner than later. But Godiva? Rocket Red? Even August General in Iron was cool, but he was an odd choice for the League, even if it was a separate team. Fire and Ice made sense, but even adding Guy when he's already in space with the GLC seemed forced. With the Charlton characters, Milestone, Wildstorm, Quality, and Fawcett characters in DC's arsenal a better team could've been put together I'm sure....

Because it had shitty sales and wasn't exactly critically acclaimed.

That is exactly how I feel! Out with the old in with the new.

The first mistake was not putting Winnick on the book, Generation Lost was great because of him

To the average reader Batwing, Nightrunner and Chief Man of Bats are all interchangeable, the team was fine, the problem lay with the writing.

The only problem with titles being canceled is that they have to be now. DC is set on this 52 shit which means even if they were putting out 52 AMAZING books, they'd have to cancel one of them to bring another one in. Its a horrible situation to put yourself in as a company that supposedly relies upon pleasing the fans.

Fortunately, the chances of DC ever actually having 52 AMAZING books at once are practically nil.

UNFORTUNATELY, their judgements about which books should get the axe aren't always going to be ones we agree with. (Though I don't really have a problem with this round, there are other titles I would RATHER have ditched. Red Lanterns for example.)

It also gives them the ability to claim that books are cancelled and replaced due to asthetic reasons and not poor sales. Kind of a backdoor way to avoid aknowledging a book is a flop. They can now just say they told the story they wanted to tell or whatever.

Several ZERO MONTH Creative Changes One-Time Confirms DC
Quote:
A DC spokesperson has confirmed to Newsarama that writer Gregg Hurwitz (Batman: The Dark Knight) is not taking over Detective Comics, despite writing September’s #0 issue, nor will artist Chris Burnham regularly be co-writing Batman Incorporated. That too is (at least for now) a one-time event for the special #0 issue.

Similarly a DC source also tells Newsarama Judd Winick is not joining the Green Arrow creative team. His gig writing the #0 issue is also a one-time deal.

Image Comics – A Threat To DC?
Quote:
It was the double punch of Jupiter’s Children and Happy that seems to have done it.

Frank Quitely and Grant Morrison, creators who had worked for DC on the monster hit All Star Superman, Flex Mentallo and We3 and currently working on one of the Multiversity issues together.

And suddenly Frank Quitely is working with Mark Millar for Image on Jupiter’s Children. A twelve issue series.

And then before you know it, Grant Morrison is working with Darick Robertson for Image on Happy.

And while we’re talking about it, DC Comics had big plans for Bryan Hitch. But he has his own Image comic, America’s Got Powers delaying them.

And Image Comics has started growing. With The Walking Dead tearing up the charts and filling the bookstore sales, repeatedly and consistently beating their rivals, and in May taking over seven percent share of the market, when they were under five percent a couple of months ago. And that’s share of an increasing not decreasing market.

In the past, Marvel and DC exclusives had been quite laissez faire about creator owned contracts. So Jason Aaron could work on Vertigo’s Scalped (even though it’s more of a creator participant deal) without any issue. But with these moves, and the odds that creators are more likely to promote their own owned work than that of a publisher, word has been coming down at DC and I’m told by creators that the latest exclusive contracts are far tighter on creator owned work outside the company.

It might help if DC actually had a decent creator owned imprint, as Marvel does with their Icon deal. DC used to have Piranha Press, but that was some time ago… and Vertigo’s terms contracted a few years ago as well.

Basically, if you are exclusive at DC right now, you are really really exclusive…

So surprisingly all the Liefeld books actually had higher sales with im coming on board, Deathstroke was up ~4k, and both Grifter and Hawkman got a ~1k bump.
