So is it possible for a new wave of comics to not have a book featuring Batman or a Batman character?

Well apparently not! The newest series coming out is going to be called "Batman/Superman" and it will be based in the past. I'm stoked personally cause I am a firm believer that Batman and Superman are best friends, and I am excited to see their friendship form.

Also side note, notice how the name of the book has changed from the former "Superman/Batman" to "Batman/Superman". Clearly they did that for alphabetical purposes ;)

DC just needs to go ahead and change their name to Batman and Associates

Lets explore this shall we.

First Wave: Batman, Batgirl, Batman and Robin, Batman: The Dark Knight, Batwing, Batwoman, Birds of Prey, Catwoman, Detective Comics, Nightwing, Redhood and the Outlaws, Justice League, Justice League International, Teen Titans, Suicide Squad, and if you count Zatanna as part of the Batman Family then Justice League Dark.

Second Wave: Batman Inc, Worlds' Finest, and Earth 2 used him as a springboard and apparently are bringing back a version of him soon.

Third Wave: Talon

Fourth Wave: Justice League of America, and Katana

Fifth Wave: Batman/Superman.

There are still 2 unknown books for the fifth wave, and its very possible that one of them is either a Red Robin or Brave and the Bold book.

And out of all those books, only JLI got cancelled and not for poor sales, but to move the Trinity War plot along. If DC keeps this up maybe we will have Batman finally take over...muhahahaha!

Not really - this is just a modern version of the long standing Worlds Finest magazine which ran from the 1940's and featured Superman + Batman. Also if sales are anything to go by then one of the books it may well be replacing is Batwing. So in that case it would be 1 Bat title for another.

No need. They're already Detective Comics.

No Batwing isn't being cancelled. The cancellations were announced and it was Sword of Sorcery, Team 7, Deathstroke, Hawkman, Ravagers, and Firestorm.
