“There’s a variety of reasons for when we unfortunately have to cancel a book,” DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras told Comic Book Resources. “So even though...the monthly title is going away, the characters are still going to be very important to the ongoing storyline of the New 52.
According to December sales estimates, all of the series suffered from low sales. The Ravagers ranked the highest with 16,177 copies, and The Fury of Firestorm the lowest at just 11,997. Deathstroke and The Savage Hawkman suffered when Rob Liefeld abruptly left both titles in August, the latter having gone through four writing teams and two major art teams in less than two years.
DC Comics has quickly added two new titles to its line-up: The Green Team, written by Art Baltazar and Franco, with art by Ig Guara; and The Movement written by Gail Simone and art by Freddie Williams II.
The Green Team is supposedly based on a feature originally seen in the pages of First Issue Special in the 1970s. It features a group of wealthy, thrill-seeking teen-agers. In contrast, The Movement is a book about power — who owns it, who uses it, who suffers from its abuse, according to the Huffington Post.
