The DC Daily Planet: Cancellations and Crossovers

JSA #54, Geoff Johns, Don Kramer, Keith Champagne, DC Comics 2003.

Happy Friday, crusaders! I’m still in a fugue state from my intake of turkey and starches yesterday. If you’re reading this from the States, I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving yesterday, and that you didn’t lose power. If not, I hope you had a great day that still managed to have pie in it.

Batman. Bill Finger. Bob Kane. Detective Comics #33. 1939. DC Comics.

Remember last week, when I told you about the Spanish football team who foolishly opted to have a black bat as their logo? We’ll, they’ve folded.

DC Comics, this is YOUR CITY.

Speaking of cancellations, wave goodbye to NBC’s Constantine, which will cut their first season short at only 13 episodes.

Of course, it’s possible this means nothing, and Constantine will be back for season two next fall, but the Cancellation Bear certainly doesn’t seem to think so:

I suppose you’ll need to head over to Supernatural for all your flapping trenchcoat, loosened tie, and occult-fighting needs.

Maybe they should have tried a crossover. According to Greg Berlanti, it’s not impossible, even with shows on two different networks: he’s already discussing a possible crossover between the CW’s Arrow and The Flash and the upcoming CBS Supergirl. It’s not like these characters don’t regularly cross universes; how hard can moving to another network be?

Well, I’m going to go sleep off the rest of the l-tryptophan in my system. Have a great weekend!
