I pay no attention to sales figures, but I was kind of surprised Hawkman wasn't on that list. I've heard no one talking about that title. I read the first issue and didn't get into it, despite being a Hawk fan.

I do get the skepticism and concern but given that Cass was in the first iteration of the series pre-reboot, I don't think he'd be making that up.

My dream pitch for a JSA Earth-2 book has always hinged on this scene where the JSA is standing before HUAC and Alan Scott tells Joe McCarthy to shove it as Superman, looking on, smirks. The public sides with the heroes, ousts the red hunters, the Soviet Union reforms in fear of the heroes and persists to modern day, Rex Tyler infects himself with HIV and uses his superior Miraclo antibodies to synthesize a cure. A world with heroes since the 40s shouldn't have anything in common with our history. It should be a futurist fantasy world that diverged from ours in 1938. Granted, I'd still work in Jack and Todd and Jennie-Lynn and Al... But I'd do it in a world that you'd never mistake for either the real world or the Earth-0 DCU.
So Captain Atom dodged a bullet, but it, Blue Beetle, Voodoo and I, Vampire are the non-canceled ongoings selling the lowest at this point. My gut says to expect no more DC52 cancellations until issue 12, when a handful more will be canceled and replaced. This feeling is almost completely irrational, but I'm guessing DC would rather cancel & launch books in waves.Estimates for the bottom ten Nu52 titles (plus newer miniseries with ++). Cancelled titles with **.
I VAMPIRE #4 – 19,44
BLUE BEETLE #4 – 19,267
++PENGUIN PAIN AND PREJUDICE #3 – 19,131
++SHADE #3 – 18,922
VOODOO #4 – 18,633
**HAWK AND DOVE #4 – 18,014
++RAY #1 – 17,779

**MISTER TERRIFIC #4 – 16,167
