SWORD Into Plowshares

Marvel launched a new series called SWORD, an X-Men spin-off starring Beast.

The first issue sold about 21K copies.

Keep in mind, comic book series typically experience a drop of at least 50% in sales between issue 1 and 2, as 1 is the collector's item and 2 isn't.

Issue #2 of SWORD last month sold about 18.5K copies.

#3 hasn't appeared in the shops yet.

Marvel just canceled the series.  #5 is the last issue.

If you ever get a gig working comics, here's a little free advice:  don't quit your day job.

That's a real shame. I was kind of liking SWORD. Also, does it seem like Marvel is taking on TV network behavior?
