Nightwing, Suicide Squad, JLA, and Superman Unchained are all cancelled and ending in April.

If you guys recall...there was a previous report I think last month or so that stated "Superman Unchained" was ending but DC refuted this as did Snyder, saying something like only Jim Lee's tenure on the book was ending. Maybe they will relaunch it as something else but for now #9 is the finale.

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/01/...ing-cancelled/
I am guessing variants of all three titles relaunch within a few months to highlight the new creative teams with all new number #1s! Superman: Man of Steel, Secret Six, Young Justice, and Nightwing!Something!.
Where was MoS, Secret Six or YJ announced?

They weren't. I think the poster was just carrying on with the relaunching and renumbering discussing you guys were having in the thread.

Placing my bets now, looking for takers. The Superman Unchained deal was exactly the type of thing I was talking about. The story could have been put into Action Comics immediately following Morrison's run to keep the momentum going--instead DC wanted a new #1! to "boost" sales.

wasn't Superman: Unchained originally going to be called Superman: Man of Steel?

I'm pretty sure that was just fan speculation, since it would have been the most obvious title.

Bleeding Cool when they first were reporting on the book, were saying it would be called "Man of Steel" to tie-in with the release of the film. Of course we got the "Superman: Unchained" instead.

I wonder why they didn't.

Still is Snyder off the Superbooks too?

Maybe he could be the writer on the JRJR Superbook.

Snyder was only writing "Superman Unchained". I suspect maybe this was cancelled so that he could focus on "Batman: Eternal". It is going to be interesting to see him handling a weekly, plus he has the return of "American Vampire" in March I believe as well and of course his regular duties on "Batman". Maybe editorial didn't want to spread him over too many books.

I'm guessing they didn't put Snyder on "Action Comics" because "Superman Unchained" was also a Jim Lee book (and IIRC they were heavily promoting that aspect too), I'm sure he probably had a lot of say into what his work load was going to be. Plus you had the debacle with Andy Diggle departing before even really starting his run, then the fill in before Greg Pak has started his current run (which has been great so far).

Given what happened with Diggle, they could have just distracted everyone by announcing Lee and Snyder on Action instead of giving them a mini. Unchained is pretty good, but now it's ending any sales they could have retained is lost because of its limited run.

So, how many Bat-books a month are we going to have now?

Batman + Batman Robin + Detective + Eternal 1 + 2 + 3 + 4?

"Batgirl", "Batman", "Batman: Eternal", "Detective Comics". "Batman and..." "Batman/Superman" that makes five books. Plus whatever they end up doing with Grayson post Forever Evil, but right now we have five books.

I read Justice League #27 and enjoyed it a lot. Like the new streamlined Cyborg design much better than the clunkier first version and it should be interesting to see what Johns does with the Metal Men.

Wonder Woman #27 was also excellent again. Still have Batman #27 on the docket.

Yes and I wish they had gone in a different direction with Batman.
