    This book is 50 times better than most crap Marvel is putting out right now, and yet it gets cancelled.

    I guess if they slapped an "X" on the front cover, maybe they would have marketed the book a lot more and the fans would have tried it and found out that they actually enjoyed it.

    It's sad to see something really good getting cancelled when there is total trash still being published month after month. Whatever

A question to my American cousins ... do you think that this failed because it was set in Britain with British heroes?

I mean the writing was excellent and the artwork brilliant so it SHOULD have been a top-selling book. However, it wasn't.

Very obviously, Dane Whitman is one of my favourite Marvel characters and I always hoped he'd dress in a more civilised way as in this book. I also think Captain Britain is a fun character and Pete Wisdom (who I imagine is in it). I'm English. I'm a tiny bit responsible for the cancellation of this book because I'm not buying it.

Even though it should be a dream book for me, the couple of issues I picked up really didn't get me excited. Characterisation and dialogue were pretty good, but I really didn't like the art at all. That was what killed it for me, I think.

I've never been attracted by the big X on the cover of some books. This just didn't do it for me on some level.
