DC's Rebirth relaunch saw many titles shipping twice monthly. DC Comics has since scaled back what it double ships, though a few select titles remain on that schedule. The publisher will now end double-shipping books altogether, with all remaining titles shipping once a month in 2020.
Retailer Ryan Higgins said on Twitter, "DC told retailers yesterday (and told us it's ok to share today) that all the double-shipping books are going back to single shipping next year. They didn't want to lose the sales of two issues of Batman, so we get both the normal book and B/C [Batman/Catwoman] by King (like B&R from Morrison)."

"More info coming soon about Detective [Comics], Flash, Wonder Woman, and Justice League," Higgins continued. It's not known at this time exactly when which books will stop double-shipping. DC has not made any public statements about the changes yet.
Higgins post makes reference to Tom King and Clay Mann's Batman/Catwoman series, a 12-part comic beginning January 2020. That title's release will mark the start of Batman returning to a once-monthly schedule. DC already announced changes to the Batman shipping schedule earlier this week, with DC editor-in-chief Bob Harras saying, "a new Tom King and Clay Mann Bat/Cat series in 2020 fills the gap once Batman begins to ship monthly.”
DC's currently double shipped titles are Detective Comics, Batman, Flash, Justice League and Wonder Woman. Tom King and Clay Mann's 12-part Batman/Catwoman will launch in 2020 and ship monthly.
