DC Comics has released their March 2015 solicitations, which is the month prior to the Convergence event.

Convergence will feature a weekly nine issue main event series coupled with 40 two-part brand new titles that runs April through May.

Now with the March solicits comes a batch of cancellations, which include the following titles.

It's speculated that DC will be doing some sort of relaunch following Convergence in June, so we could be seeing some of these titles with new #1s.
