  1. Regarding the cancellations: my understanding is that every book was guaranteed to have six issues when DCNU was announced. I think that, behind the scenes, a decision was made to hold off on the continue/cancel decision until the issue 5 orders came in so DC could see if any books had found following or had tanked after the issue 1 spike. I expect any book that makes it past issue 8 may be re-evaluated for cancellation at issue 12 (two full trades worth of stories, and more lead time to come to a conclusion). I find issue 8 an odd point for cancellation since that is only one and a half trades worth of stories. I think the reason for six cancellations was that is how many replacement series DC had ready to go at the time of the announcement. And some series seam to be coming back simply to maintain copyright on the series title (has to be published X times every 10 years, hence why Men of War is being replaced by G.I. Combat).
