DC Comics Cancels “Superwoman” Comic Book

With the release of the January 2018 Solicitations today, DC Comics announced that the “Superwoman” monthly comic book title would conclude with issue #18.

While “Superwoman” hasn’t been one of DC’s best selling titles, it is far from the bottom of the list, the publisher hasn’t announced why the series is concluding with issue #18.
