In the latest in a series of collection cancellations, DC Comics has decided to cancel the Challengers Of The Unknown by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale collection that would have collected eight issues of their series together. They've also cancelled the new edition of the Green Lantern/Green Arrow: Hard Traveling Heroes collection by Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams. And not a comic, but they have also cancelled the DC Engines Of Chaos Batman statue designed by Riley Rossmo and sculpted by David Giraud.
These will not be resolicited. However The Absolute Art Of Adam Hughes, which has also had all its orders cancelled, will be resolicited later in the year.

Speed, villains and superheroes with a gritty and dystopian twist: DC'S ENGINES OF CHAOS-the latest statue line from DC Collectibles-is fast approaching.
After Ra's al Ghul succeeds in destroying society as we know it, a postapocalyptic world of motor vehicles and mayhem emerges. Heroes and villains cruise a barren wasteland on distinctly individualized bikes and vehicles as they fight for control in this new world. Based on the designs of renowned artist Riley Rossmo, each statue is a high-RPM reimagining of a beloved DC character uniquely optimized for this world; some figures have adapted to battle, others to survival.
If you think the end of the world is enough to stop Batman…you don't know the Dark Knight. Riding atop a custom bike complete with armored wheels and a bat-shaped grill, it's clear Batman isn't going to let a little apocalypse (or Joker bots) keep him from delivering justice. The statue is cast in polyresin, which allows for delightful details-like sand being kicked up from the force of the bike-to come through on the home product.
