Remembering the news that both Catwoman & The Atom are canceled, my mind goes back to this post dated 3/13:
"If I had to make some decisions on it, I'd do the following:
All the Classifieds
Birds of Prey (sorry)
Green Arrow/Black Canary
The Flash (sorry)"
Looking at the numbers for March, I still stand by this assessment, though with two caveats:
1. Some people report actually liking Supergirl. But will there be brand confusion with their new children's comic starring a radically different version of the character?
2. I really like Tom Peyer & Freddie Williams III's Flash. I mean, I really feel strongly about it. The fact that the second part of the current arc reads like there was supposed to be a whole issue there that was edited out makes me nervous, however. It has that "hurry and wrap this up" feeling to it. I hear a lot of rumors about Barry Allan & Impulse. I have to wonder if they are just going to try to fix things one more time with this title.
I expect some cancellations following the aftermath of Final Crisis. These might not be due to low sales in some instances, but after any event of that magnitude there is going to be some reshuffling.
DC's numbers for March seem like a lame duck in the shadow of Final Crisis. I would imagine the landscape of the DCU would be changed quite a bit within the next three months. Ditto for Marvel after Secret Invasion, though they are generally performing across the board better than DC.
I'd be very curious as to the numbers for Titans #1. I don't think that particular book is going into a direction I would dig personally. But I am really curious if it gets its fans anyhow.
Just remember -- "Buffy" is at the head of the Top 100 chart, and "Witchblade" is towards the end. What type of book should DC model a title like Titans after? What works?
Buffy The Vampire Slayer is the top-selling female superhero. Study this.
