Awesome!

that was the first I heard of six titles being cancelled, though. I almost had a heart attack thinking one was Stormwatch. (Mee: NOOOOOO! We just got it BACK!)

Yeah, I heard about the canned books - two of them written by two of the very few black creators in mainstream comics, apparently, so two cheers for DCnU diversity :|

And I'm likewise relieved Stormwatch escaped the chop. I haven't been crazy about the current run, but there's about to be a new writer so I'm still interested.

To be fair, the two titles are Mister Terrific and Static Shock-- both completely lame books with no following whatsoever. They come into our shop and sit on the shelf. -_- Batwing is staying on, though, and so is Batwoman, so there's a black character and a lesbian character for you.

It's about time Hawk and Dove got cancelled. We've been making jokes about wiping our arses with that one for months. ;) [It's a Rob Liefeld, after all...]

Not that I am in any way defending nondiversity of course O_O

No, I totally get what you're saying, don't worry :) And nooo, I don't think the Liefeld art will be missed, I think the 90s want it back ;)

No, I don't think they want it either. ^_-

(Too bad on Static Shock in particular. Loved the cartoon back in the day.
