* DC has canceled a batch of poor-performing print comics. There's a narrative based on rumors run by various web sites that this fits into a "return to basics" strategy being promoted at DC as a repudiation of some recent narrative flourishes that are more modern than classic. I'm not sure I see that totally with this batch -- and in general DC's line is a bit all over the place, with titles that represent 2015 but also 2011 and also the late '90s generally -- but a DC that is canceling titles is always of interest and if they're going to adhere to bottom line publishing, that's way more important I think than whatever strategy is employed. Another thing that interests me is that if Lobo is being canceled, I wonder about the 2011 rebranding efforts as a general thing.
* finally, this article about a newspaper's comics feature switch is entertaining if only because rarely do editors show this much contempt for departing features.
