52 is Dead; Long Live 24?

DC, you’re up. DC has announced they’re dropping the New 52 branding and are going forward with 24 core books. What, you couldn’t make it 26, just for fun? I bet they really tried, but Liefeld won’t work with them anymore so they couldn’t squeeze two Hawkman books out of him. All of this happens in June.
Honestly, it’s hard to even know what to think at this point. Convergence may restore some pre-52 elements but what *is* canon or what we’re even supposed to call it is in the air. Comics publishing is like a reality show these days, where we follow the narrative of what is getting picked up and dropped (on whatever merit) almost as closely as the narratives actually inside the books. Grant Morrison, I blame you.
