Young Justice and Green Lantern Animated Canceled

All the Reports I have read tell me that Young Justice and Green Lantern: the Animated Series (GLA) are canceled on Cartoon Network.

I also heard that Warner Bros made a deal with Netflix for shows that included the Green Lantern show.

Is it it possible that Netflix, in its effort to put new programs on their service, may be adding this to the list of original programs?

Only time will tell.  Nevertheless both programs may have a new home on Netflix.

May's new DC take

As I said in a couple of prior posts, DC is dropping  I, Vampire and DC Universe Presents.

The following is further exploration of what may come out in May.  I will do this by reviewing Newsarama's choices, by talking about what DC has already hinted, and by making my own recommendations.

Newsarama's Choices

1. New Gods.  Any revial of a Kirby title is something I would enjoy.  The fact that Orion is being featured in Wonder Woman does give this title some steam, but I really think that DC is going to wait until sales figures show that it could happen.

2. The Atom.  Both the old Atom (Ray Palmer) and the New Atom (Ryan Choi) had been mentioned in the New 52.  Ray was featured in the now canceled title Frankenstein, Agent of Shade. I don't think it is likely that The Atom is going to be one of the titles.

3.Lobo.  He has appeared in Deathstroke. So him coming back is possible. But I don't think that the time is right to give him a title.

4.The Creeper.  He is one of my favorite characters. I would love to see him in a book, but I think DC has to find the right writer and artist to make a viable title for him.  Plus I would rather have him appear somewhere else first.

5. The Doom Patrol.  Niles Caulder is currently in Ravagers so it is possible that a version of the Doom Patrol could follow.  I think it is really dependent upon Ravagers becoming successful.  In my mind they are not there yet.

6. Blue Devil.  Why newsarama?  He is just finishing a story with Black Lighting in DC Universe Presents, a title that being canceled in April.  I don't think it likely.

7.The Losers. The first question is what version. The second question is why would DC devote resources to either version when both were canceled?

8.Shadow Cabinet. This a good idea, but I think that the team should be introduced in several other magazines first.  My reason behind that is that a lot of us didn't embrace Static Shock either.

9.Sun Devils. Not that memorable.

10.Kamandi. As much as I would like to see this title, I don't think DC is ready to do this one.

What I think DC is going to Do.

1. New Teen Titans title.  A Raven lead Titans title has already been announced, so I think that would be next.

2. Not a real clue, but Freedom Fighters ( The Ray, Phantom Lady, and Human Bomb), The Doom Patrol (My Greatest Adventure and Ravagers), all have been building in various titles.

What I hope they will Do.

1. The New Teen Titans title.

2. Freedom Fighters title.

3. Either a Doom Patrol title or New Gods.

That is all I have for now.

Go forth and do well.

April Solicits part 2

Apparently I missed the final issue of  "I, Vampire" being in April.

Newsarama speculates what the titles will replace "I, Vampire", and "DC Universe Presents"

See the attached link for their choices:

I am thinking of my own recommendations, but won't have them for the next post.

April Solicits...Another one Bites the Dust

Here is what I see from the the Solicits:

1. DC Universe Presents Ends it Run at Number 19.  That means the line will be down to 51 again.
I have not seen what will replace it yet, but hopefully it will be good

2. Something building. If you look at the solicit you will also see that some things are starting to build.

3. Cool Covers.  If you are fan of cool covers, April is the month to pick them up.  Many of the titles have variant fold out covers. I like them because it makes the cover a lot grander.

Here are two sites that have the full listing.


If you prefer to get it straight from DC, then go to the link below.  It gives you each of the DC groups separately

That is all for now.

Go Forth and Do Well.

April Solcits

From what I am seeing on the various sites, April sounds like it is going to be a very big month.
