The series is the second all-new title of the Rebirth era to be canceled by DC Comics, following in the footsteps of Superwoman. (While All-Star Batman released its final issue in November, the comic has been re-imagined from an ongoing series into a variety of as-yet unannounced new projects.) Though DC has not announced why the series has been canceled, the title is DC's lowest-selling ongoing comics, though not the lowest. In October, Blue Beetle #14 sold 10,379 copies.
