DC Relaunch: Six Comics Canceled and Replaced With ‘Second Wave’

DC Comics announced on Thursday that they would be setting up the second wave of “New 52” releases while also canceling six ongoing comics that were released in the initial run of the DC Relaunch.

Resting in peace are six comics that were quite good and enjoyable or had a lot of potential to be great, so they will definitely be missed. Those comic books are Blackhawks – a war comic focusing on a group of militaristic mercenaries in the vein of G.I. Joe; Hawk and Dove – the only DC book written by the extremely talented Sterling Gates with art from Rob Liefeld (more on him in another article); Men of War – a war book that was one of my favorite comics of the relaunch that took a realistic approach to the military in a world full of superheroes; Mister Terrific – one of the very few DC comics with a person of color as the leading role. Also, the main character was highly intelligent and, interestingly enough in a comic, atheist. O.M.A.C. – this to me is a tragedy considering that it was a fan favorite even in the light of poor sales. Sure it’s bizarre and nutso, but it was a complete blast to read. And finally Static Shock – one of, if not the only book that could be considered “youthful” and “fun,” and also one of the few books starring a person of color. All of these titles will see their last issues in April.

DC Relaunch: The All New Teen Titles

Today, DC Comics announced five new titles coming in September centered around teams and teens. Fans have been asking about most of these titles since the initial announcement from DC, and now, they got their answer. But are these titles and changes enough to get fans excited? Well, in my ongoing coverage of DC’s relaunch by listing the new titles while giving you my running commentary, I hope to help you come to that conclusion on your own. So, let’s get started!

Legion Lost #1 – This actually seems pretty interesting to me. In a very similar concept to the traditional take on Legion of Superheroes, this band of seven seemingly diverse heroes from the 31st century go back in time to save the future. Legion Lost will be written by Fabian Nicieza, a personal favorite, while the art will be handled by Pete Woods who has done a phenomenal job on his recent stint with Action Comics alongside Paul Cornell. I’m really intrigued with the concept, and I love the creative team, so I’ll definitely be giving this one a shot.
