Bleeding Cool has been reporting on a spate, it seems, of DC Comics cancelling planned paperback or softcover editions of recent collections of comic books, preferring to let the more expensive hardcover editions stand. The latest to fall foul of this are the paperback editions of Tales of the Amazons,  Batman: Shadows of the Bat: The Tower and Batman: Shadows of the Bat: House of Gotham. While the Black Adam Vol. 2: East of Egypt has been cancelled in its entirety – it never had a hardcover. You'll just have to make do with Vol 1 or find the back issues. While Green Arrow Vol. 1: Reunion now has a $19.99 cover price, a change from its originally solicited cover price of $16.99.
