Twenty-Eight DC Comics Selling Fewer Copies Than Supergirl

So, Supergirl is cancelled with #42 in May. A surprising cancellation, I'll grant you. But if it's a sales consideration… what other DC Comics regular series sell fewer copies? And could they also be in danger? Bleeding Cool added up the card stock combined covers, and here are the titles DC COmics is currently publishing, that are selling fewer copies through Diamond Comic Distributors….

Currently that would include, in order;

  1. Nightwing
  2. Lois Lane
  3. Batman Beyond
  4. Teen Titans
  5. Far Sector
  6. Aquaman
  7. Justice League Odyssey
  8. Batman And The Outsiders
  9. John Constantine: Hellblazer
  10. Batgirl
  11. Low Low Woods
  12. Red Hood Outlaw
  13. He-Man And The Masters Of The Multiverse
  14. Hawkman
  15. RWBY
  16. Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen
  17. The Terrifics
  18. Martian Manhunter
  19. Last God
  20. Metal Men
  21. Freedom Fighters
  22. Dreaming]
  23. Gotham City Monsters
  24. Lucifer
  25. Books Of Magic
  26. Wonder Twins
  27. House Of Whispers
  28. Dial H For Hero

So that might indicate there was another reason for Supergirl's cancellation. Potentially they didn't want to start a new arc when the new Crisis/Convergence II/Generation Five/5G is meant to relaunch everything anyway? Could be we seeing other titles come to an imminent close in June and July? Like The Green Lantern concluding with #8 instead of the planned #12? No more Batman Incorporated-style holdover situations like they had with the New 52?
