No More Power Man

Yes you read that correctly Marvel has canceled Luke Cage…not the Netflix show, but the comic.  You all can breathe now.

David F Walker has confirmed the February issue titled Luke Cage #170 will be its last due to poor sales.

“Sad but true…Luke Cage (the comic book, not the TV series) has been cancelled,” Walker tweeted. “Issue #170 is the last (and best) of the series. Oh well, on to other adventures. Thanks to everyone who supported the series.”

“Time to get real…Luke Cage was cancelled because it sold poorly he continued. “VERY poorly. There are various factors that contributed to those poor sales, but they all add up to the same conclusion.”

Luke Cage isn’t the first comic to get scrapped.  Generation X, Hawkeye, Iceman, Jean Grey, and The Unbelievable Gwenpool will also wrap up  early in 2018.  

“The success of superheroes in film, television and video games ONLY carries over to comics when people actually buy the comics. Truth is not many people buy comics. Of the top 10 best selling comics in November, only four sold more than 100,000 units. That’s sad.”
