    I think it means the final issue of the storyline. It's already been stated that Geoff Johns will be coming back, and he can't do that if the book's not there anymore. If JSA were ending, we'd have heard by now. It's just really bad phrasing on someone's part.

    And what the hell is up with Supergirl? This is the third month in a row that issue #8 has been solicited for. I could understand the delays under Loeb, what with his son dying and all, but what's Rucka's excuse? I want to find out what's up with Kara and Kara in Kandor already.

    And yay for new Justice League! :D 

    Edit: Just reread the full solicits and thought of some stuff to add.

    It looks like JSA might actually be cancelled after all. They'd better relaunch it, it's one of the best books on the market. I'm going to side with the school that thinks it's only being cancelled so they can relaunch it as Justice Society of America, to match the Justice League book's name. The JSA had better still be around, I need my monthly Power Girl fix.

    Looks like Wonder Woman's been replaced. $10 says it's Donna Troy.

    Good God, the cover to All-Star Batman & Robin #5 is horrible. Badly drawn and really pervy. DC needs to drop Frank Miller like a hot potato.

    Further edit: The JSA's future is in good hands. :D

    It's pretty obviously Cheyenne, the meta chick that Dick hooked up with in #118 and again in #119.

    I swear this title has been cursed since Chuck Dixon left.

    Mind you, after two decades of writing pure crap, I never expect much from Bruce Jones, but this title actually manages to be even shittier than anything he's ever written before. It's like he has never read a single comic with Dick Grayson before and just made up a whole new personality to fit his "plot".

    Bruce Jones, the Uwe Boll of comic books. :stick:

    Just to note:

    JSA isn't being cancelled.

    It is being re-launched as "Justice Society of America"

    So they are just going back to the full name.
