Yep. we hear that from Marvel fans a great deal -or former fans and be honest, if someone has stuck with your company forty or fifty years and they've said "NO MORE!" they were fans. And former DC die hard fans are screaming the same. There is a way DC can get back its fans but I am writing nothing. I'm not paid to give them ideas even if they did read them. Its greed they have been consumed by -as have Disney with Marvel.
And according to TechTimes five DC titles will be cancelled by the end of 2015: http://www.techtimes.com/articles/84628/20150914/5-dc-comics-will-be-canceled-by-years-end.htm
"DC will be canceling five titles by the end of the year, including two books that launched back in June as part of the publisher's "DC You" initiative.
It appears as if Doomed will be the first to go, with its #6 issue being the last installment in the Doomsday stand-alone book. DC hasn't confirmed when Doomed will be canceled, but since Doomed #7 doesn't appear in DC's December solicitations, it seems safe to assume the series will be ending in November with #6.
The other four titles on the chopping block will end in December, according to CBR. Those books include Justice League United, Lobo, The Omega Men and Gotham by Midnight.
Of the five, it is perhaps most surprising to see Justice League United get the axe. The series launched in April of 2014. Gotham by Midnight will be canceled almost a year after its debut. The series follows detective Jim Corrigan as he and the Gotham Police Department "Midnight Division" investigate various supernatural occurrences in the city.
The Omega Men, another title from "DC You", will also be ending. The series detailed the fate of former Green Lantern Kyle Rayner as part of a team of space rebels.
It isn't too surprising that Lobo won't be continuing past #13. While a strong character, Lobo's dramatic redesign from the loud, rude, heavy metal intergalactic biker into a more sleek and nimble assassin rubbed many long time fans of the character the wrong way."
As an up-date, I notice an hour ago IGN published this news:
"Justice League United from writer Jeff Parker and artist Travel Foreman will end on issue #16. Ray Fawkes and Julio Ferreira's Gotham By Midnight will end on issue #12. The Omega Men, from Tom King and Barnaby Bagenda, will end on issue #7, and Cullen Bunn and Frank Barbiere's Lobo will end on issue #13."
You have to ask how feckin dumb are Didio and his hangers-on that they have a movie released next year to set up the Justice League and they cancel the title? Lobo I can understand as I saw pages and asked "WTF is that??" NOT Lobo.
If -IF- the rumours I hear are true, the Didio and DC are almost panicky but putting on a lot of bluster to cover it. "It's a mess!" is a quote but I'm not losing anyone their job.
And Marvel? After the entire 1963 universe "ended for good"? Apparently, there is more reshuffling going going on and a few "re-positionings" in the company but, again, IF the rumour mill is true, people buying Disney's Marvel comics are going to see even more rebooting after the rebooted reboot.....before a reboot (sorry, I added that last one!).
If you check out Tales From The Kryptonian you'll see he has his own views on Marvel and DC.
It's almost as though we are looking at two groups of headless chickens running all over a highway with crash after crash but you hear squawks all at once from different places of "This way!"
