Could A Superwoman Cancellation Ruin DC's Perfect Rebirth Streak?

Since the start of Rebirth, DC has yet to cancel a single ongoing title. An impressive feat in the modern comic book industry.

Could A Superwoman Cancellation Ruin DC's Perfect Rebirth Streak?

Last month, however, Bleeding Cool speculated that Blue Beetle could be the first, after Christopher Sebela made the following comments about taking over as writer on the book:

But now it looks like Blue Beetle might have some competition from Superwoman. A solicit for the third volume of Rebirth Superwoman in the Edelweiss book catalog (first discovered by Newsarama Collected Editions – look, Newsarama, that's how you credit someone) seems to reveal that the book will be ending with issue #18 in January:

The conclusion to the adventures of DC's newest hero in SUPERWOMAN VOL. 3, as a part of DC Rebirth!

Searching for an explanation of the source of her powers, Lana traces her steps back to high school with a teenage Clark Kent in Smallville. With Lana's role as Superwoman hanging in the balance, Lex Luthor makes an unexpected appearance.

From writer K. Perkins (SUPERGIRL) comes the finale of one of the most unique tales in DC history with SUPERWOMAN VOL. 3! Collects SUPERWOMAN #13-18.

That certainly does look pretty final. A five issue arc for Blue Beetle starting with issue #14 would also put that title as ending with #18, though in this case, the possible final issue would probably be out in February.

Anything else you'd like to tell us, DC?

And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
