DC Comics Casualties Coming in March

batwomanSince DC will be introducing 24 new titles to supplement its ongoing series this summer, that means something (okay, a lot of somethings) has to go.

    Earth 2: World’s End
    Green Lantern: New Guardians #40
    Infinity Man and the Forever People #9
    Injustice: Gods Among Us – Year Three #12
    Klarion #6
    The New 52: Futures End
    Red Lanterns #40
    Secret Origins #11
    Star-Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie #8
    Swamp Thing #40
    Trinity of Sin #6
    World’s Finest #32
