    My read is that 5G is Earth-0 for the next few years and then it will become a separate earth 5 years from now or so.

    Doomsday Clock was announcing the next couple of reboots in advance and explaining how they’ll work with pieces of Prime Earth/Earth-0 getting shunted off to other earths just like they did when Earth-2 was created in 1956 or so and pieces of the main earth got shunted off to form a separate earth.

    I don't believe for one second that it'd prevented the peoples who want to kill this book to try and do this anyway. Instead of "Bendis butchered Imra" it would just have been cried "Bendis replaced Imra by X" !

    Yeah, let's see what DC says when sales are sliding and they need something to give them a boost. They might very well intend on not doing them today, but tomorrow could change things.

    They've said "no new #1's!" before, and ended up doing new #1's within a year. I don't expect this to last any longer.

    Definitely feel like Romita Jr.’s art hurt Action’s sales imo. Looking at those sales, why did Kara get cancelled when so many other books do worse? It’s weird to me. At least they’re keeping Terrifics going although it’s clearly not long for this world.

    Action has been kinda meandering along unfocused since Leviathan Rising. JRJR probably just pushed some people over the edge. Kara got cancelled probably because she's going to end up with some kinda of Death Metal related miniseries and then a relaunch. Second tier non-Bat books can limp along with 10-15k sales no problem.

    I don't know how DC handles its income statements, but Marvel used to take excess revenue from their big, high selling X-books and use that to help keep the lower selling X-books going. David's X-Factor survived that way; the sales were below cancellation numbers but Marvel believed in it and let the extra money from Uncanny keep X-Factor on the shelf.

    So perhaps DC does the same thing but the Super books don't pull enough extra revenue to keep Kara going, while other books that also sell low (like Nightwing right now) get to keep going because their editorial group has some extra cash to spread around?

    I don't know. Product costing is such a detail oriented process, we'd need tons of more info before we could understand DC's reasoning here.
