DC Cancels Legion Of Super Heroes, Dial H, And More
The DC August solicitations have hit today, and with the info on new titles comes the news that four books are coming to an end. The titles on the chopping block this time around are Legion of Super Heroes, Demon Knights, Dial H, and Threshold. The news isn’t too big of a surprise considering they are the publisher’s four lowest selling titles, but Legion and Dial H had a very dedicated fanbase. Dial H was a unique book to begin with because it was a second wave book in the DC universe that was overseen by a Vertigo editor. With Demon Knights getting the ax, DC is left without any type of high fantasy book. Threshold featured characters like Captain Carrot and the Zoo crew as well as Blue Beetle, but it struggled to find an audience. You can check out the covers as well as solicit info for the final issues of the dying series below. Were any of these on your pull list? Do you hate to see them go?
