Is DC Comics canceling the First Wave line?

by  in Comic News Comment

The Beat and Bleeding Cool both reported today that DC Comics is canceling its pulp adventure comics line, First Wave, which includes the ongoing Doc Savage and Spirit titles. DC has not officially confirmed the cancellations, but hopefully we’ll have an update soon.

It’s probably not surprising, as both Doc Savage and The Spirit have been selling in the range of several other DC titles that have been canceled recently, such as Doom Patrol and R.E.B.E.L.S.

The First Wave line kicked off with a Batman/Doc Savage special by Brain Azzarello and Phil Noto in 2009. It was followed by the Doc Savage and Spirit ongoings, as well as the six-issue First Wave miniseries that wraps up next week. A First Wave special is scheduled for April.
