When the DCnU first started it was something no other publisher had done before, not in comics or any other industry I can think of. They rebooted decades of popular characters taking titles like Action comics which were months away from the 1000th issue and taking them back to #1.

DC have announced the demise of six of it’s less popular titles and replacing them with six new sure to sell out titles. One of which is a mega surprise. The return of Earth 2 is among the new titles.

DC reported the following titles will be canceled once they reach issue 8 in April.

  1. Blackhawks
  2. Hawk and Dove
  3. Men of War
  4. Mister Terrific
  5. O.M.A.C.
  6. Static Shock

The least popular titles have already been cut which could make the full run of these even more valued in the future to collectors. But to people who read comics will know some comics get canceled for a reason, *cough* O.M.A.C.

The second wave of DCnU will include some amazing titles which I’m left confused to why they didn’t get included int he first wave of the DCnU.

  • Batman Incorporated – Writer: Grant Morrison. Artist: Chris Burnham. The acclaimed ongoing writer of ACTION COMICS, Grant Morrison, presents a fresh take on BATMAN INCORPORATED, in which the Batman brand is franchised globally in preparation for a major international threat.
  • Earth 2 – Writer: James Robinson. Artist: Nicola Scott. The greatest heroes on a parallel Earth, the Justice Society combats threats that will set them on a collision course with other worlds.
  • Worlds’ Finest – Writer: Paul Levitz. Artists: George Perez and Kevin Maguire. Stranded on our world from a parallel reality, Huntress and Power Girl struggle to find their way back to Earth 2. Perez and Maguire will be the artists on alternating story arcs.
  • Dial H – Writer: China Miéville. Artist: Mateus Santoluoco. The first ongoing series from acclaimed novelist China Miéville, this is a bold new take on a cult classic concept about the psychological effects on an everyman who accidentally gains powers to become a hero.
  • G.I. Combat – Writer: J.T. Krul. Artist: Ariel Olivetti. Featuring the return of a classic DC Comics series, THE WAR THAT TIME FORGOT, along with rotating back-up stories and creative teams – including THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER, with writers Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti and artist Dan Panosian; and THE HAUNTED TANK, with writer John Arcudi and artist Scott Kolins.
  • The Ravagers – Writer: Howard Mackie. Artist: Ian Churchill. Spinning off from TEEN TITANS and SUPERBOY, this series finds four superpowered teens on the run and fighting against the organization that wants to turn them into supervillains.

I don’t think I could be any more excited the return of Earth 2. DC reported one of the reasons for the reboot was the confusing nature of Earth 2 and the Crisis Events but it seems DC wants them back and too right.

We also see the return of super comic legend Ian Churchill as he takes a short break from his creator owned Marine Man series. Marine Man of course is a must read too if you can find a copy of the sold out TPB.
