POLL: Who’s To Blame For The Cancellation Of That Ta-Nehisi Coates Comic Book?

Last week, essayist and guilt merchant Ta-Nehisi Coates announced that his Marvel comic Black Panther & The Crew would end after just 6 issues. The book, which is currently on issue #2, has been variously described as “One of [Marvel’s] most important comics right now” and an “Attempt to introduce racial diversity to the world of comic books” and “I didn’t even realize there was more than one comic starring Black Panther.” Coates is blaming poor sales for the cancellation, but we all know the real reason.
