One of Ta-Nehisi Coates' propaganda vehicles has been canceled

A spinoff title from the Black Panther series Coates was writing has been put to rest after just 2 issues because sales were dismal. The story, unsurprisingly, is as leftist as it could get:
Joined by Luke Cage, Manifold, Misty Knight, and Storm, the titular superhero who entered the limelight with Captain America: Civil War gathers his all-black crew of superheroes to investigate the death of a civil rights activist who died in police custody. It has echoes of Sandra Bland’s death.
Does Cage still have a bald head? Knight, as seen in at least one picture on the article, still got a rounded Afro haircut, as though this were still the 1970s. From a fashion viewpoint, it's ridiculous how they're going by such cliched styles instead of varying them more. IMO, Cage looked better when he had hair, which all changed at the turn of the century, unfortunately, no thanks to hack writers like Brian Bendis.
Set in a near-future Harlem-turned-police state patrolled by robotic police officers controlled by a private security contractor, the comic has every element you’d expect from a comic attempting to tell a story inspired by Black Lives Matter. The cops beat people up for no reason, too.

Naturally, the social justice superheroes take justice into their own hands and go to battle against the corrupt system, while learning about the historical figures of the Civil Rights Movement. Univision-owned entertainment vertical Gizmodo enthusiastically describes The Crew as one that “[tells a] timely [story] about real world issues, like how police brutality devastates black communities.”
Right, as though it's still as existential a problem today as it was decades ago. And not a single commentary on how blood libels, violent black-vs-black crime and racism coming from black communities can devastate them too. Just more of the same leftist rhetoric you could expect from a writer as awful as Coates truly is.

Here's more from Breitbart:
Coates assured fans that with its last few issues, the comic’s storyline would be wrapped up and the mystery of who killed the civil rights activist would be solved.

Naturally, the liberal comics community is upset that Marvel has canceled the Black Lives Matter-centric title. Gawker site Gizmodo complained that Marvel spent no resources advertising or pushing the comic on fans. The site also proclaimed the cancellation “keenly disappointing.”
It sure looks like some of them just can't come to terms with the bad sales receipts. And with ultra-leftism as awful as what the latest take on Black Panther's got, that's mighty rude of the former Gawker site to advocate pushing the stories down our throats. Regarding the "mystery" of who the criminal of the Crew story is, it won't be shocking at all if it turns out it's a right-wing maniac. One more reason why it'd be ill-advised to bother about Coates' crummy writing.

Update: here's more on Lifezette.
