DC Comics has cancelled orders for DOCTOR FATE #1 (FEB07 0270), DOCTOR FATE #1 Variant Edition (FEB07 0271), and DOCTOR FATE #2 (MAR07 0199). These issues will be resolicited at a later date.
At least they haven’t cancelled the Golden Age Dr. Fate Archives (FEB07 0272) solicited to go along with the series launch.
Issue #1 was supposed to be written by Steve Gerber with art by Paul Gulacy, while issue #2 was solicited with art by Justiniano & Walden Wong with cover by Paul Gulacy. Of that creator list… I’m told that Gerber is known for script delays, so it may be the case that Gulacy got frustrated, or the editor was setting up parallel art teams to deal with the problem. Or the company solicited the title before it was ready. Or I may be completely off-base in my groundless speculation.
Update: At his blog on March 3, Gerber posted that “Paul Gulacy, who was originally slated to draw the book — and who did indeed provide the very striking first-issue cover — had to leave the project due to a scheduling conflict.”
