Now DC Comics Cancels Pandora, Phantom Stranger, Superboy… And World’s Finest? (No To The Last UPDATE)

Posted by May 19, 2014 Comment

Joining Batwing, Birds Of Prey and All Star Western on the scrapheap in August are Phantom Stranger, Pandora and Superboy… though most like Birds Of Prey, Phantom Stranger, Superboy, Pandora and Batwing have another 3D cover Futures End issue listed for  September. Could they be due a relaunch? Or were they planned before the books were cancelled?

World’s Final Issue… or not?

UPDATE: Not. CBR reports

One book that is not slated to end that month is “World’s Finest”: Issue #26 of that series was listed as a “final issue” in the solicitation text sent to press and has appeared as such in other outlets, but DC Comics confirmed to CBR News that designation was in error, and the title is not ending. DC declined further comment on the six books ending in August.
