gets cancelled. What the heck?
BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #40
Written by DAN DIDIO

Cover by PHILIP TAN
Batman arrives in an attempt to unite Black Lightning's team with Geo-Force's for the final battle against Veritas. But as one teammate is lost and others leave, Batman must determine if it's time to disband The Outsiders forever.
Is this a casualty of the upcoming Flashpoint? Will it be relaunched after that story, or switched into a different title? Who knows? All I know is that this is one of my favorite titles and I am annoyed that it is being cancelled to make way for temporary stuff, even if that temporary stuff is part of what sounds like a cool crossover story. I have heard that Doom Patrol will also be on the chopping block; these moves will have the effect of positively impacting my comics budget, but man, that's the wrong way to achieve that goal.
Also, notice who is not on that cover -- seems that Geo-Force might be the "lost" teammate mentioned.
Batman And The Outsiders #40 hits stores on May 18.
