WildCATS writer Warren Ellis has a bleak outlook on if that series will be released. The six-issue series, originally announced to debut this month, was removed from DC's publishing schedule and all orders through Diamond Comics Distributor were canceled in late July.

"WildCATS isn't coming out. There is hope that it will be resolicited at a later date, but, for right now, it's cancelled," Ellis wrote in his weekly newsletter, Orbital Operations. "As you know, I was two scripts into it, with chunks of other parts done and a full and lengthy treatment for six issues, so it's kind of frustrating for me too. (RIP my bills.)"

DC co-Publisher/CCO Jim Lee tweeted out in July that he aims to get Ellis' WildCATS back on track. The originally-solicited series artist Ramon Villalobos has publicly said he had deadline issues with the project, but that as far as he knew the series wasn't canceled.

"So there's hope for the future of the title," Ellis added. "Maybe someone will want to draw my tired old man shit, who knows."
