    I hope to see more of the cast that was woefully under utilized, such as Random, along with Voght, Risqu, and Frenzy with whatever book they find themselves in the coming year. Also I really hope to see more of Cortez. He was the surprise star from the earlier issues, and his absence has been felt. Ewing has loads of material to weave into gold from all of the dangling subplots that we didnt get to see come to fruition, along with the new status that comes from this ending. If Ewings next book is half as good as SWORD, what comes next should make for one heck of a show. Read Full Review

    S.W.O.R.D. #11 delivers the series finale that concludes this battle between S.W.O.R.D., the Lethal Legion, and Henry Gyrich. The art and action in this book are solid, and the writing is good with some fine pacing. The only problem is it's pretty predictable until the third act, where it drops a huge revelation that could definitely impact things for the X-Men and S.W.O.R.D. going forward. Read Full Review

    S.W.O.R.D. may have dug itself too deeply into the game of intrigue, making it difficult to connect with the plot for all the redirects. Perhaps "Destiny of X" will offer its successor series the opportunity to renew its focus. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 29, 2021

    S.W.O.R.D. #11 almost feels like a futile gesture, a Hail Mary pass in the fourth quarter in a game that's already been lost. Stretching the football analogy further, it's a great play, but it does nothing more than show that the team is good and the next game will be better. Ewing finally does something worthwhile with this book, and while it bodes well for the future, it just makes one wish he was doing this sort of thing the whole time. Camagni is a good artist but nothing special. Hopefully, this book's developments will allow X-Men Red to be better than it was. Read Full Review
