DC: Defying Cancellation

Here's another observation from the ICv2 listings for February. Starting from around #200 and going up, these are the DCU titles and their statuses.

#182 Bloodhound (Cancelled)
#170 Monolith (Cancelled)
#154 Richard Dragon (Cancelled)
#140 Breach (second issue)
#132 Manhunter
#115 Gotham Central
#113 Doom Patrol

Meanwhile, the lowest Marvel Universe ongoing is at #111, the last issue of the cancelled Alpha Flight series. DC has traditionally had a lower cancellation threshold than Marvel, but these aren't great numbers. All of the non-cancelled books slipped from the previous month, too.

Between Bloodhound, Manhunter, and GC, it's just not a good time to be a law enforcement officer in the DCU.
