DC Cancels Batman: The Dark Knight And Animal Man In March

DC Cancels Animal Man And Batman: The Dark Knight
DC has cancelled
two titles today with their last issues scheduled to ship in March. The writers
for both Batman: The Dark Knight and Animal Man have announced
through their personal blogs that the titles are cancelled.  

Gregg Hurwutz
announced the cancellation on his blog today thanking fans and expressing how
much fun he had writing Batman: The Dark Knight:

Batman is forever, but sadly not all of his titles are. Batman: The Dark Knight will be ending with Issue 29. When I first signed on
to do a single arc with David Finch,
I never imagined I’d stay this long. Because of my work in novels and
screenplays, I’m rarely sure what sorts of deadlines I’ll be juggling at any
time, so I usually commit to a single six-issue story at a time and write way
out ahead of schedule. DC has been
great and gracious about accommodating this, and because of their flexibility,
I wound up writing on the title for two (really damn fun) years.”

– Gregg Hurwutz

 While Jeff Lemire also announced Animal Man’s
Cancellation and gave hope to fans of the character on his blog:

“My run as the writer of Animal Manand the series itself, will
come to an end with March’s
Issue 29,
issue which I will both write and draw along
with Travel Foreman.
As sad
as I am to be finished writing the solo stories of Buddy, Maxine, Ellen and Cliff,
 I am also excited to announce that I will continue to write the monthly
adventures of Animal Man when he becomes regular member of the new JUSTICE LEAGUE book I am writing.”

– Jeff Lemire
