Well, it's not like they don't react. Green Lanterns gets a new creative team with #51, they seem to split Jess and Simon. And rumor has it that Hal&GLC gets replaced with a new Green Lantern book by Morrison. That should stabilize sales quickly.

Yes, I'd love to see more Kyle, especially in a starring role. And maybe that's what Morrison is gong to do. I doubt it, but maybe it is.

I'm just happy they are doing something that isn't relaunching with a new #1 and keeping Venditti.

I'm normally against whimsically cancelling a title and immediately replacing it with a new #1, but here I think it might be for the best. For one, NEITHER title is officially called "Green Lantern". It's as if the real GL title was put aside and we have been enduring two spin off titles the last 2 years.

And neither title has anything going for it that really needs to be saved.

19 Doom Patrol 1* $3.99 DC 76,225
79 Doom Patrol 2* $3.99 DC 37,856
96 Doom Patrol 3* $3.99 DC 30,140
105 Doom Patrol 4* $3.99 DC 26,261
101 Doom Patrol 5* $3.99 DC 24,693
104 Doom Patrol 6* $3.99 DC 21,954
120 Doom Patrol 7* $3.99 DC 18,432
125 Doom Patrol 8* $3.99 DC 17,483
133 Doom Patrol 9* $3.99 DC 16,381
133 Doom Patrol 10* $3.99 DC 15,504
155 Doom Patrol 11* $3.99 DC 12,937

So much for THAT volume of the Doom Patrol. Down to under 13k in 11 issues, mostly due to DC entrusting the title to a rock star. The guy couldn't make deadlines and polluted the book with his gender identity confusion almost as much as Rachel Pollack did. No wonder it ended the same for his run as it did hers.

Gerard Way announced a few days ago that the Young Animal line was ending this summer, with some attempt at a straight face while claiming it was always meant to be a short term imprint. He then said he plans on doing more issues of DP, but with the uber late #11 not really ending the story but at least fulfilling the TPB promise already solicited for it, I'm pretty sure #11 was the end of the series.

And with DC's announcement of a Doom Patrol tv show with 13 episodes ordered for the upcoming online service they are building up content for, I would expect DC to come up with a new 7th volume of DP to compliment it.

I switched to trades on that book. I know that quite a few customers at our store did as well. I wonder how much of an impact that made, and how the TPB sales line up against that development.

No you didn't. I wanted to like it, but Gerard Way really fell into the same trap that Rachel Pollack did. That being trying to ape Morrison's creative weirdness but not being good or even telling coherrent stories. The issues were very choppy; like a movie that had horrible editing and couldn't decide what it was supposed to be. It was just odd but not clever like he set out to be. A hot mess.

I'm curious to how the trades will do as well. All told, there will be 3 trades. 2 for the 11 issues of DP volume 6, and 1 trade for the Milkwars 5 issue crossover. Not much to pick up at all.

I'm just glad it's over, even if not 100% official yet. The quicker volume 6 ends, the quicker we can move on to volume 7.

Joking aside, isn't that a bit optimistic? This kind of thing can kill a b-team book for years.

Normally I would say so. that after the thud the YA imprint is ending with, that the DP would go into the mothballs for a few years as is the usual practice. What makes me think DC will jump back into it is that a DP series will bein that new service in the next year or so. We wont see anything before then, but I would be shocked if in 2019/2020 there weren't new Swamp Thing and Doom Patrol ongoings to go compliment the new tv shows. There is plenty of time between now and then.

That and the birth of the New52 is what killed the Freedom Fighters momentum. After the Uncle Sam & the Freedom Fighters mini had a sales spike towards the end after reintroducing the Ray [90's Ray Terrill version], it got an ongoing series post Infinite Crisis. Then just before the New52 DC had relaunched a bunch of titles, and US&tFF was rebranded Freedom Fighters and lasted another nine or ten issues before the New52 screwed a lot of concepts out of books.

Then of course they began reimagining the characters in *mostly* solo minis [the Ray, Phantom Lady and Doll Man, and then the Human Bomb] setting up a new FF in the New52.... but thankfully that never came to be.

GLs selling about 4K less than the Hal titled one, yet that's the title DC chose to end first. Interesting.

Maybe HJ&TGLC made sense to DC to end first because of the ridiculously long title.

The title is coming back in some capacity. They've done things like this in the past. SuperSons was cancelled and relaunched later, and it sold well.

It seems like DC has found a comfort zone in publishing 2 GL titles. The heyday of 3 to 5 titles is long past but they know they can find the readership for 2 if they relaunch them every 2 to 4 years. Both titles will be replaced by something on the publishing schedule. What they call them doesn't really matter on the business end for DC as long as they get a sales jolt every couple of years.

As I've said before, I bet the sales for Green Lanterns is being puffed by about 5K. So the decision is even goofier than you describe.

But as I've also said before, Green Lanterns is not about sales. It's about DC's virtue signaling. So now they're moving Hal into that title in the hope he'll keep it going.

Unless Grant Morrison writes Green Lanterns as well as the other GL title, they're in for an unpleasant surprise. Hal won't sell Green Lanterns. Nothing is going to sell it.

That title is doomed I agree. Once the sales start spiraling it's MUCH easier to "end" the title and replace it with another one. DC probably already knows within a few issues when that is going to happen with GLs.

Looking back, there have been a LOT of GL titles that have come and gone since Rebirth ended in 2005.

The question is, how stubborn will DC be about it? They've proven they can be exceedingly stubborn where virtue signaling is concerned.

DCU titles are usually canceled when they drop to 17K on icv2. Comics don't actually start losing money for the company until they drop all the way to 8K. And DC let Blue Beetle and Cyborg drop all the way to 8K before canceling them!

I would not be surprised if they're similarly obstinate about Green Lanterns. And poor old Hal could suffer a lot of collateral damage from that.

Both titles have pretty much leveled off and stopped bleeding readers. At least it seems that way.
