Since that line seemed to be Titan's bread and butter, I can only assume DC pulled the licence. But why? Did they want too much money for Titan to pay, this time? Are they planning a new reprint line of their own? Or are they just anticipating problems after Brexit? It has to be bad news for Titan, in any case.

Yeah, with the US version of Simpsons Comics cancelled, I assume Titan will have to cancel their version of that too. In that format, all that'll remain is Adventure Time, Rick and Morty, and Doctor Who: Tales From the TARDIS Comic. How viable will those titles be now?

The company will have to focus on their US format comics, I think.

LOL. I just subscribed to Batman Superman Presents. It must be the shortest subscription ever (being only one issue).

I did find it strange that in the last issue (3.2), the strip finished with 'The End..?' which I hear happened with other Titan/DC Comics?

At least it actually WAS the end of the Man of Steel mini. You can just pick up the trades of Bendis's Action Comics and Superman to continue the story.

A check of covers reveals that Adventure Time's current issue, #11, has the same cover art as the US #74. And that series ended at #75! Looks like that's ANOTHER title ending. I won't be surprised if both that and Simpsons are gone by Easter.

It would be great if Titan created a monthly title which serialises their American graphic novels similar to Tales from the TARDIS and the defunct CLiNT.

Adventure Time is already up to issue three of Adventure Time Season 11, the comic book continuation of the T V series, so the UK reprint is good for a while yet it would seem.

I think you'll find that means they've caught up with the US! Which was the reason Futurama Comics got cancelled, I believe.
