        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.



    Quote:
    No, it failed because it gave fans what they always claim they want: excellent writing and brilliant artwork, turned out on a regular basis without any connection to tie-ins or involved crossovers. So naturally they didn't bother to pick it up.

So - what could/should have been done differently? Were Marvel to blame for not pimping/hyping this book as much as they do others, or protecting it so that low sales didn't kill it off?
