Diamond Comics Distributors have informed retailers that DC has canceled all orders for Warren Ellis and Ramon Villalobos' Wildcats #1 - #3, but that the publisher intends to re-solicit them at some future date. House ads for the series ran in some of this week's DC books.

This relaunch was formally announced back in May for an August 28 debut, with Ellis talking about it online as far back as March 2017.

"The Wild Storm is a slow burn, with careful gridded pages, carrying many plotlines in a novelistic way. Wildcats is none of these things. It will move very fast, it will focus exclusively on the main cast and the people and events they meet, and it will be as explosive and crazy as I can possibly make it. It will be, deliberately, the precise opposite of The Wild Storm. Control. Escape. Breakaway civilisations.  Central planning.  Survival. Conceptual breakthrough and the discovery that our universe is bigger than we thought. And the world is stranger than we thought."

Originally solicited as an ongoing title, Ellis said shortly after the announcement that he expected it to be six issues, followed by a Zealot title.
