Today, with the release of their September solicitations, DC Comics has confirmed that the following books are being canceled with their zero issues:
- Captain Atom
- Resurrection Man
These books join Justice League International, which had previously been announced as cancelled with issue twelve.
None of these cancellations are particularly surprising as all were at or near the bottom of the DC sales charts. When The New 52 was first announced, DC brass said that they would be very quick to pull low selling books and keep the line fluid. As much as I am sad, to varying degrees, for all of these books ending, I can respect that they are sticking to their guns and making a commitment to finding books that resonate with the audience.
