Marvel Dumps New Black Lives Matter Comic After Just 2 Issues

Marvel's #blacklivesmatter themed comic book featuring the black panther lasted just two issues.

Marvel comics has learned what their readers don’t want to read about when viewing their comics: Politics. Last month Marvel’s vice president of sales and marketing said that replacing comic superheroes with characters and storylines that were politically motivated was hurting the company. The largest attempt at this was a Black Lives Matter themed series featuring the Black Panther. After only two issues, the series has been cancelled due to poor sales. The upcoming movie starring Chadwick Boseman will probably do equally poor in the box office.

“Black Panther & The Crew,” was created by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Yona Harvey. It followed Black Panther, Luke Cage, and other Marvel characters as they investigate the death of a civil rights activist in the near future. The series is blatantly political, with obvious connections to the Black Lives Matter movement.
The “Black Panther & The Crew” comic book was seen as anti-police. It was accused of having poor storytelling. Political agendas were the main driving force behind major story beats and dialogue. Marvel tried to prioritize social and political agendas above story, and audiences have spoken up.
It lasted just two issues.

Marvel made their bed, now they can lay in it.
