Sometimes it’s a sad occasion when Bleeding Cool has the opportunity to say, “pip pip.” Today is one of those occasions, as DC’s February solicitations have confirmed that Blue Beetle #18 will be the final issue of that comic.
As we reported in October, deleted tweets from writer Christopher Sebela implied that this month’s cancellation was coming. The confirmation makes Blue Beetle the second DC Rebirth title to be canceled, following October’s cancellation of Superwoman with January’s Superwoman #18.
Check out the solicit below, and see DC’s full February solicitations here.

It’s chaos at Kord Industries as Jaime helps Ted install a new A.I. system, only to have it come online and seize control of the facility. Trapped inside the building, Blue Beetle is put to the ultimate test, battling a hostile entity that turns every tool in Ted Kord’s inventory into a deadly weapon. With his last school year approaching, Jaime could be taking his final exam.
