I get stories from all kinds of sources. Creators, retailers, publishers, staffers, distributors, and people who just happen to be in the right place. Some I know the credentials, some their past stories give me confidence to run them.
Well, this piece is from a new anonymous source claiming to have certain specific insight regarding DC Comics. And who, last week, gave me the credentials of revealing to me the final pages of two DC titles out tomorrow that I was just able to confirm with a US retailer.
So, this person has demonstrated they have access to comic books before they hit the shipping process.
That doesn't mean they are telling me the truth. Joe Quesada once did that trick to me a fair few years ago… this could be Dan DiDio, Geoff Johns or even John Cunningham.
More on what's replacing them to come. I have also, independently been able to corroborate that at least two of those titles are cancelled.
But I am also told, from other sources, that the main solo characters will be moved to headline other titles. Starfire to Titans, Black Canary to Birds Of Prey, Grayson to Nightwing, that kind of thing.
Interesting games to play…. could the cancellation of Midnighter suggest The Authority comic to replace it? Now, that is just speculation… sorry.
