A representative for DC Entertainment and DC Comics has confirmed for The World’s Finest that the Beware The Batman title has been cancelled. The final issue of the monthly comic title will be issue #6, hitting shelves come March 2014. Beware The Batman, based on Cartoon Network animated series of the same name, features stories based on the show’s continuity by a rotating creative team. Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters, including ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, facing off against the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld.
When asked for a statement on the book’s cancellation, a representative for DC Entertainment told The World’s Finest, “We will not be continuing with the Beware The Batman comic book. We encourage you to check out some of our other kids comics titles like Teen Titans Go! and Scribblenauts Unmasked.”
The Beware The Batman comic title held impressive sales in the direct market, with the first issue selling nearly 20,000 copies – a high number for an all-ages comic. This number does not include digital and newsstand sales.
Beware The Batman #6, the final issue of the comic, is scheduled for release on March 26th, 2014 from DC Comics. The next issue of the series, Beware The Batman #4, hits shelves this coming Wednesday, January 29th, 2014. Additional details on the Beware The Batman comic title can be found at The World’s Finest.
This cancellation is the latest setback for the Beware The Batman brand. The animated series is currently on hiatus from Cartoon Network, after being suddenly pulled from the network’s DC Nation programming block last October. News on the cartoon’s expected return is set to be revealed soon.
