I might give BoP a shot, depending on reviews.

IMO, DC has an uphill battle to win back readers who walked away after the new 52.

I always figured that the DCYou titles wouldn't make it past 12 issues. I'm not surprised to see them get the chop. DC put no effort into marketing those books.

I'd love a book with Dick, Donna,...

I flip through the Flash every now and then. I don't like the writing or the art. And Wally needs to start running fast already. Why does this book have four splash pages each issue? Why not have...

Anyone else watching this show? I want to like it more. Wally has arrived (finally!). I love Iris, but she is so underused. They've given Patty Spivot more camera time than Iris this season. ...

Yeah, that sums up the wariness of a lot of people. I'd have more faith if they were in the hands of, say, Boom! or IDW.

Are these miniseries or ongoings?

Have they noticed Marvel's outselling them even though the comics don't follow Marvel movies?

Didn't they also say last summer that DC was done...

They do very little to market books like Omega Men. They actually canceled the book and then un-canceled it. It still sells poorly will probably get the chop by issue #12.

The company only cares about Batman anyway. Maybe they should cut back books to Batman and license comic rights for other characters to other publishers. Dynamite doing a JSA book? Would be cool. ...

I'm curious: who is this "new guard"? And how would you define "old guard"? There are people born post-COIE who would call themselves "old guard," but DC certainly doesn't think so. They seem to...

I just think that they're being tight-lipped depending on a lot of things. They just don't know what is and isn't canon. They can hand-wave everything with Hypertime. Or multiple multiverses. Or...
