DC Comics Cancels Its Second Direct Currents Magazine

stl027483-600x803DC Comics recently joined Marvel and Image Comics in creating their own magazine to promote their upcoming comic books. After the success of the DC Rebirth volume, created by ex-staffers of Wizard Magazine such as Mike Cotton, who now work at DC Comics, the first proper issue came out at the end of the year.

But the second issue was meant to be out towards the end of February.

But it won't be,

And now it won't be for some time.

Retailers have been told that orders for Direct Currents #2 have been cancelled. And that the issue in question will be resolicited at a future date.

I wonder what went down?
