DC Cancels Six

Selling from 9,300 to 16,000

Superboy #34, the final issue
It’s time for the annual pruning of DC Universe titles, in which the company ends poor-selling books with their August issues to clear the decks for replacement titles.  DC did the same last year (see "DC Cancels Four").

DC will be cancelling six DCU books with the August issues, according to the solicitation information released today.  The six books, along with their most recent sales numbers for the April issues (see "Top 300 Comics--April 2014") follow:


 
  • 16,358     Birds of Prey
  • 15,382     Superboy
  • 15,337     Trinity of Sin Pandora
  • 14,899     Trinity of Sin The Phantom Stranger
  • 12,285     All-Star Western
  •   9,313     Batwing
These are the poorest sellers among the DC Universe titles, so no surprising casualties.

DC has already announced its big September promotion (see "DC Releases September 'Future's End' Solicitations").
