If Rich Johnston is to be believed, it’s not just DC that’s looking to pull back on its line:
Dark Avengers is canceled as of May.
Looks like Captain Marvel will be gone, unless an upcoming Avengers Assemble mini-crossover can lift sales enough.
Winter Soldier is also for the chop by the summer.
None of these are especially surprising, considering the sales figures – and Winter Soldier‘s already having had a last-minute reprieve from the chopping block – but they are frustrating, if true. Here’s hoping for another change of heart/sales bump for the affected titles (Captain Marvel #9, in particular, should be picked up if you were interested in the book when it launched but unconvinced by the early issues. Perhaps it’s just me, but Felipe Andrade’s art is a far stronger fit for the book’s tone than Dexter Soy…).
