DC Cancels More Titles In November

DC Comics has been going through some major shakeups recently, which has included some series cancellations, and now the company has announced four more series that are coming to an end. DC's November solicitations revealed that Young Justice, Teen Titans, Hawkman, and Suicide Squad will all be ending, and some of those are quite surprising. Most surprising is Suicide Squad, which really just started and had a lot of hype going in with Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo at the helm. The series will end with issue #11 though, so it seems it wasn't selling enough despite that opening hype (via CBR).

Young Justice is also surprising, as it is a part of Brian Michael Bendis' Wonder Comics imprint and has been generally well-received by fans.

Teen Titans and Hawkman are less surprising, though that has nothing to do with the quality of the books themselves. I've immensely enjoyed Teen Titans, and Hawkman spun out of DC Metal and introduced some interesting concepts to Hawkman's lore.

That said neither was a sales juggernaut, so these are likely simply the first of several cancellations coming down the pike.

You can find the official description for all four cancelled titles below.
