DC March 2015 Solicits

March Solicits Showing their Inner Lion

DC the month before 40 new titles reek havoc for two months announces that 14 titles will end in March.

IGN posted their take on the cancellations in the following link:

Contrary to IGN's Article, DC did say that the 3 weeklies would end in March to Make way for their April to May Event which we now know to be CONVERGENCE.



THE BELOW LINKS ARE THE MARCH SOLICITS AND NEWSARAMA'S TAKE ON THEM:

The following is a recap for those who did not check out the link of what titles end in March


Titles DC previously said would end in March
Batman Eternal
Earth 2: World's End
The New 52: Futures End



Titles Ending In March Not Previously announced
Aquaman and the Others
Arkham Manor
Batwoman
Green Lantern: New Guardians
Infinity Man and the Forever People
Injustice: Gods Among Us - Year Three
Klarion
Red Lanterns
Secret Origins
Star-Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie
Swamp Thing
Trinity of Sin
World's Finest 

My take on these, like most, is that they are all canceled because of low sales and because some of the Creators are leaving.  I also think that some of the CONVERGENCE TITLES MAY BE COMING TO THE LINE UP AS WELL ( see the forthcoming post for the titles and my comments.)

I also feel that all but INJUSTICE; GODS AMONG US losing Tom Taylor may have also been a factor in its cancellation.

I think the others just either lost or never found their audience.  

Batwoman, in particular, kept jumping back and forth between different types of stories.  Horor one minute, almost scifi the next.  I think it needed to find a voice before it went off on tangents.

The Green Lantern titles lost their way when Johns left them.  The emotional spectrum needed that kind of energy that Johns provided, it just didn't have it.

Well there is the info and my comments about it.

Till the next Post.

Go Forth and Do Well.
