COMICS: Six DC Comics Canceled But Six New Titles Are Planned To Keep The Magic 52 Number

All things considered, I think you can consider the new 52 a success and DC plans to keep the momentum going with some strong new titles.

Six New DC Titles
-Batman Incorporated: Grant Morrison picks up where Batman Inc. left off.

-Earth 2: James Robinson revives The Justice Society

-Dial H for Hero: Writer China Miéville on Dial H, "The whole point of Dial is that the roster of capes is changing every single month, often two or three times. In the original run, he's turning into a giant spring coil to foil bank robbers, and I'm like, OK, what if you are a 25-year-old guy and you turn into a superpowered spring coil? That's going to mess with your head."

-G.I. Combat: Per USA Today, " The new series features the return of elements from the classic 1960s book The War That Time Forgot in a main story by writer J.T. Krul and artist Ariel Olivetti, with rotating backup stories featuring old standbys such as The Unknown Soldier by writers Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti and artist Dan Panosian as well as The Haunted Tank by Hellboy scribe John Arcudi and artist Scott Kolins."

-The Ravagers: Per USA Today, "The Ravagers spins out of the world created by Scott Lobdell in the pages of Teen Titans and Superboy, with a quartet of meta-human teens on the run from the nefarious organization N.O.W.H.E.R.E."

-Worlds' Finest: Writer Paul Levitz and artist George Perez follow Earth-2 Power Girl and Huntress, who are stranded in our world and hope to return to Earth-2.

And let's give a fond farewell to some of the following titles, who will all be wrapping up in Issue #8 of their respective series.

Six Canceled DC Titles
-Men of War
-Mister Terrific
-Hawk and Dove
-Static Shock

Kind of bummed about Static Shock but from the sound of Ravagers, I'd place a heavy wager that he'll be turning up in the pages of that comic at some point.
