Yesterday, in the second installment of their new monthly column over on CBR, DC Comics Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras and Editorial Director Bobbie Chase made a few announcements, but the biggest revelation was that DC Comics is canceling six books: Fury of Firestorm, Ravagers, Savage Hawkman, Deathstroke, Sword Of Sorcery and Team 7. Put in perspective, that is nearly 12 percent of their monthly titles.
Following that, today DC announced two new upcoming books: The Movement, from writer Gail Simone, and The Green Team, from writers Art Baltazar and Franco, each of which the publisher says will be "tackling themes surrounding Occupy Wall Street."
The Movement, drawn by Freddie Williams II, is "an idea I've had for quite some time," Simone told the Huffington Post:
"It's a book about power -- who owns it, who uses it, who suffers from its abuse. As we increasingly move to an age where information is currency, you get these situations where a single viral video can cost a previously unassailable corporation billions, or can upset the power balance of entire governments. And because the sources of that information are so dispersed and nameless, it's nearly impossible to shut it all down."
