The solicitations for DC’s September have been slowly unveiled over the course of this afternoon, causing bloggers all around America but mainly New York and Los Angeles endless minutes of anxiety and figner cramps as they refresh DC’s The Source website. The news, as already reported, is that Dan DiDio will compulsively hold to the unending dream of 52 books a month, meaning Justice League International, Captain Atom, Voodoo and Resurrection Man will all be cancelled to make way to AMETHYST, Phantom Stranger, Talon, and that other one we’ve all forgotten about already.

Voodoo stuggled from the start, as it gained the attention of the internet immediately as a side-note to the Starfire/Catwoman ‘women shouldn’t be defined by their sexuality now let’s all stare at pictures of women and define them by their sexuality’ blog boom of last year. Having a stripper for the main character gained the title serious negative attention, and writer Ron Marz was replaced on the title by Josh Williamson after only a handful of issues.

Resurrection Man and Captain Atom was solid titles, which didn’t do anything to really grab attention from fans during their runs. They were reasonable, had decent art, and did okay things with the characters and story. But they never kicked off or really hit home wtih readers in the same way that, say, Animal Man has done. And Justice League International was probably the least interesting book ever published, so it probably better off dead.

Other news! The DC’s ‘Zero’ initiative kicks off, and looks to be the place where we’ll finally see Shazam make his first appearance; will at last get round to explaining how Batgirl escaped The Killing Joke; and introduces that new mysterious Green Lantern to readers. All the books cancelled after the First Wave will have a swansong in the Zero issue of DC Comics presents, while Demon Knights and Stormwatch will explain a little bit about their connection to each other. Meanwhile, Rob Liefeld retains control of three titles while Scott Lobdell takes over Superman.

    Dan Didio, twirling his moustache: “Let’s see RESURRECTION MAN return from THIS! Hahahhahahaaaa”

    Ha? :-(

    Resurrection Man canned…bah, guess I’ll hop on board Demon Knights I suppose.

  3. Snikt Snakt says:

    With VOODOO being cancelled, which title will replace it in the stripper/super hero genre?!? :-P LoL

  4. Phantom Stranger, presumably

    Yeah, gutted about the R-Man too. Best book of the lot IMO. Felt the least bogged down by past DC history, too.

    Voodoo? Loved it when Ron Marz was on it. Felt fresh and intriguing. Then the Batgirl editor took over, Marz got the boot, and the hack replacing him gave Voodoo a Batgirl-style inner voice! Horrible.

    I was sure Grifter and Deathstroke were getting the axe, seeing as they’re in the new Team 7. Never mind, eh.

    “Resurrection Man and Captain Atom was solid titles”

    …Eh.

    What the hell is Captain Marvel wearing?

  8. Scott Lobdell shouldn’t be caught anywhere near Superman, but of course, Harras and DiDio are running out of old cronies to take over their failing series.

  9. Wow these cancellations are putting a smile on my face. Awesome.

  10. “causing bloggers all around America but mainly New York and Los Angeles”

    What am I, chopped liver?

    Of course not, Rich.

    You’re black pudding.

    Ah. I wondered about your Catwoman cover story and now this. You’re one of those guys… “HEY LOOK AT ME AND HOW PROGRESSIVE AND LIBERAL I AM AND HOW I UNDERSTAND YOU POOR POOR HELPLESS DOWNTRODDEN WOMEN DON’T WORRY I’M HERE TO SHOW SOLIDARITY WITH MY SISTAS!!!”

    Gag.

  13. Just fyi for any sistas reading this – SOLIDARITY, yo.

    I thought Rich lived in America, actually.
