In news that has come to be expected ever since the start of New 52, DC has decided to cancel six titles and switch up creative teams. All the latest after the jump.

The announcement came down yesterday that DC is canceling six titles: Firestorm, Hawkman, Deathstroke, Team 7, Sword of Sorcery, and Ravagers. Top brass at DC obviously have little faith in Sword and Sorcery, which placed just outside the top 100 issues for December, Team 7, and Ravagers as all three titles still haven’t hit double digits on their runs. DC continues to cut ties with Rob Leifeld dropping two of his previous books. The cancelled titles don’t make up the bottom six series that DC is creating, with titles like Batwing about the same numbers. So the mystery of DC continues.

Along with the cancelation announcement DC also set creative team changes in motion with Mike Johnson leaving Supergirl with Micael Alan Nelson (from Boom) taking over, Defalco is out on Superboy with Justin Jordan in, Jimmy Palmiatti and Justin Gray both on Batwing now, and Francis Portela coming on Legion of Superheroes.

Always interesting to watch DC make changes so keep checking Major Spoilers as we bring you all the latest.

    Can’t wait to see if they do the same as before and announce six new titles. Hopefully some long missed characters come back.

    RIP Sword of Sorcery. You didn’t have a chance to really shine.

    Can’t say I’m surprised that these are being dropped. I was reading Firestorm for about 12 issues, but it really wasn’t gripping me.
    Team 7, SoS and Ravagers weren’t around that long at all, were they.
    Like Randy, I wonder what they’ve got lined up, to keep the magic number at 52. Give Francis Manapul more titles!
    I wonder what will be next on the chopping block?

    Rumor is Legion Lost may also be on chopping block soon. I gave up on that and LoSH by issue 10

      Legion Lost was cancelled in the previous wave and is gone already…

      …you’re a bit late…Legion Lost is already gone…

      …I’m a Legion fan, and even I must admit it’s no big loss…

    I am both surprised and happy that Demon Knights is still around.

    Honestly, I’d be alright with it if they cut all of the New 52 titles and re-instated the ‘Old 52.’

    I see what Marvel has done with re-imagining their universe with great new creative teams on Marvel NOW! and think, wistfully, how good the New 52 idea could have been had DC actually done it right.

    The Leifeld effect. Everything he touches turns to crap (90’s crap with big guns, pouches, and unrealistic anatomy)

    I still don’t understand how Batwing is still around… The book is not spectacular by any means, and just being a “Bat-book” shouldn’t give it a pass… And believe me… I WANT Batwing to be doing well… The writing just isn’t there…

    I whole-heartedly third it!
