DC is ending 17 comic series by March 2015, including some notable ones. I honestly wonder if comic book sales are really tanking outside the big books (like the Bat-family books, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, etc), because it seems like they're trimming the fat.

I honestly wonder if the "New 52" is going to continue putting out 52 comics each month, or they're going to go down to 38.

Swamp Thing? Damn. I heard that was good, and I was planning on reading it.


Red Lanterns was good, so that sucks.

They always reshuffle their peripheral books. Most of those are junk anyway, just being published to fill out the numbers so DC's "New 52" mantra makes sense. No, they really don't NEED 52 titles, as most of their New Universe is crap, anyways.

That said, it's not a huge deal. The only surprise there is Green Lantern Corps since that's been running for about a decade. Every year or two they cancel a bunch of their Books Nobody Reads and replaces them with other Books Nobody Will Read. Nothing major ever happens in those books anyways.

Does DC still put out 52 books a month? I thought they ship less than that now, and only kept the 52 name as an advertising label.

They put out more then 52 counting trades.
