S.W.O.R.D. Cancelled, Campaign Starts…

The Astonishing X-Men spinoff book S.W.O.R.D. by Kieron Gillen and Steven Sanders has been cancelled from #5 by Marvel. Sorry, folks, I’ve been enjoying it too.

But as we know in this game, and cancellation isn’t always forever. And can be reversed. On the Nerdery blog, Greg Hyatt is launching a campaign to save the book.

It even has the support of artist Steven Sanders and a nod from writer Kieron Gillen.

Campaigns have in the past helped the likes of Spider-Girl and Deadpool to survive. And as part of Blackest Night, a number of comics returned for one extra issue, in keeping with the resurrection of the dead theme.

There are many possibilities for fans to consider though. Could we get a relaunch? A back-up strip? Maybe the cast taking over another title? But it’s also worth remember that in interviews Kieron Gillen wrote the book so that so the first five issues wraps off neatly. So you will get a decent, planned ending.

I don’t suppose there’s any way to get Deadpool involved in the title? He only seems to have five monthly titles coming out now…
