This is definitely one of my favorite comic series. But I knew from the start it was doomed. The story was too good and by the time they got to Constantine, I was like, Yup, it's over.

Where the hell are they going to get the money to do that? Most TV Networks can't handle relatively cheap shows like 24, Star Trek, etc... This would cost a fortune for one character and they want to do multiple characters? Who are they going to fight terrorists? Cause if they aren't fighting a real world threat; it's going to drive the budget up even more. This would make the movie budget look like pocket change.
There is NO WAY this is going to happen.
The Shadow is one of my favorite characters. Can't wait for this!
I certainly agree that's it's sad that these titles are being cancelled. Unfortunately, as you also stated, I think it's DC's own fault. The more titles a publisher seems to put together at a time, it seems like the more chances there are for some to fall through the cracks. Similarly to this, Marvel's new titles have a very inconsistent quality level. The art in Defenders for instance, is TERRIBLE! I've all ways believed that it's better to have fewer titles with more support behind them, than a vast array of titles with only a shoestring level of support.
As someone who isn't a HIUGE fan of DC historically. I think many of these titles also lost traction because no one knew much about them before hand and without a strong showing right out of the gate; they lost the few people who were reading them and never got new people.
Just picked up the comic today from my comic shop and about 20% of the comic is repeated.... Anyone else have this?
It was a very good show. I remember my girlfriend and I watching it every day. But I think the audience for that type of show is probably more on Adult Swim than it would be during the day or evening these days. There really isn't a single solitary show, except maybe the new Thundercats, that even makes an attempt to be serious. Even the new Young Justice, which I love, is too often mired in silly tongue in cheek humor. I just think that everyone thinks that the audience for cartoons like this are MUCH too young to understand anything of substance. Which I completely disagree with. I would say that Young Justice would be a perfect proving ground for this; but again, considering Batman Brave and the Bold's terrible ratings, I don't think that DC/WB is willing to take what is perceived to be a big chance. But then that is 21st Century TV in a nutshell.
Both Wonder Woman and Batwoman are great books. Being a dude, I try and not buy stuff that is obviously exploitative. But I think it usually falls on the creators shoulders to change this kind of thing. I don't think this sort of thing raises enough of a blip in the general audience to make number of issues sold a factor. It would be nice to think otherwise, but it's really ahrd to imagine. Hopefully, I'm wrong.
Action Comics has the best story, art, etc... Superman #1 is more of a side story. If I had to choose one, it would be Action all the way!
