DC Comics Cancels Orders for Absolute Daytripper, Absolute Swamp Thing and New Teen Titans Omnibus 4

DC Comics seems to have been running a bulldozer through their Big Books schedules of late. At least these Big Books having their orders cancelled will be resolicited. But this is the kind of thing that can really screw up a retailer’s cashflow.

So DC have cancelled orders on Absolute Daytripper, Absolute Swamp Thing and New Teen Titans Omnibus 4. Could it be that there are people in production who have been let go, or reassigned, who might have been able to handle the workload?

Here’s what will come back… one day… maybe. Absolute Daytripper was already resolicited once. Will third time be the charm?
