(2) The case for Twelve (12) cancellations.
Two series are MIA from the May 2018 Solicitations. They are Supergirl and Harley Quinn. Are they now cancelled too?
(3) The case for Eleven (11) cancellations.
Considering the above, we know that Cyborg #22 was curiously solicited for May 2018 yet Cyborg ended in February 2018. So, is Cyborg now uncancelled? (UPDATE: Looks like Cyborg #21 is solicited for April 4, 2018. Kudos to reader Pocok for pointing this out.)
Context: The Confirmed Cancellations.
Batgirl and the Birds of Prey is cancelled as of May 2018 as per the above.
Justice League: No Justice so far has led to six (6) DC Rebirth era cancellations. That includes Super Sons ends in May 2018.
It joins five (5) other series cancelled due to the post Justice League No Surrender DCU including Trinity, featuring Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, in April 2018. Justice League, Justice League of America, Teen Titans and Titans all appear to have been cancelled to make way for post No Justice new series.
That follows three (3) other series that have been cancelled. The remaining cancellations were Cyborg and Superwoman in January 2018 and Blue Beetle In February 2018.
