Al Ewing and Valerio Schiti’s S.W.O.R.D. has been nothing short of excellent. The series opened with a strong first issue that laid the foundation for some really interesting work that the newly reformed S.W.O.R.D. is doing. Then issue #2 elevated the stakes with some truly awesome storytelling.
There’s sure to be renewed interest in a title called S.W.O.R.D. given that the organization is front and center in Marvel Studios’ mind-blowingly epic WandaVision show on Disney+. Fans of the show will of course find that the comic iteration of the group has little in common with what we’ve seen thus far on the show, but hopefully it’s still a good gateway to a fantastic story.
S.W.O.R.D. #2 releases this Wednesday at your local comic book store!
