S.W.O.R.D. title is comming to an end... also!

So not just the Avengers titles but more... Writer Kieron Gillen confirmed this morning that Marvel's Astonishing X-Men spin-off S.W.O.R.D. will end in March with Issue 5.

Writer Kieron Gillen had this to say on a blog post: "While cynics have noted, it’s unlikely this sort of activity will magically get S.W.O.R.D.’s run extended, but it’s not just about that. Letting a publisher know they released a book which people liked and had an audience is always worthwhile. As others have noted, if you dug it, it’s worth being grateful for five issues."

"Comics operate on a system of pre-ordering. As in, the first issue’s orders were in before anyone had even read a single page of the book. The numbers which people are reporting are low enough that the inevitable second issue dip -- also ordered before anyone had read Issue 1 -- would move it into a clearly dangerously low sales for a book in the X-family. In other words, I actually don’t feel that bad about the cancellation. It was already on unsteady ground before anyone had even read the thing, and got annoyed over Sanders’ Beast design or my over-verbal theatrics."
