He’s the near-perfect combination of brains, brawn and humor, and he easily fits into both the Avengers and X-Men sides of the Marvel Universe. However, Sanders’ art is otherwise excellent, with the fight scenes easy to follow. Another alien creation, the Metroliths, make up for the snouty aliens by being nifty rock monsters. No Time To Breathe isn’t the most important of Marvel reads, it is one of the most fun. Gillen is clearly having a good time writing all of this alien action, and I want to go back and read his X-Men and Thor books.

Reviews about X-Men: S.W.O.R.D. - No Time to Breathe (4):
Bluecliff
This book takes place at an organization called S.W.O.R.D, an agency with similar purpose to the Men In Black. The plot takes place over the course of a single day, following Beast and Agent Brand over the course of the former's very hectic first day at work.

The story moves quickly, with many problems popping in the course of these few hours. There are coups, several invasions and worst of all--a visit from Agent Brand's trouble inclined half-brother. There's plenty of humor and the art is, from what I can tell, very good.

My only real complaint is that Beast's new character design, which differs from the design on the cover, took me a while to get used to. He's gone from ape-ish, to feline to this new facial shape which resembles a cross between a horse and a malnourished Scottish terrier.

Overall a very good book, and well worth the money spent because I will likely find myself rereading this over and over again.

Beast is a big character. Lockheed and Henry Peter Gyrich are supporting characters. You have small appearances by Cypher, Warlock, Hepzibah, Cyclops, and Emma Frost. Gyrich takes over S.W.O.R.D. and decides that to save Earth, every alien must be deported. Beast (who has left the X-Men) and S.W.O.R.D.'s former leader Abigail Brand try to save Earth from real threats while at the same time protecting alien rights against Gyrich. It's not the best X-Men story ever, but it works. Has enough action to keep you entertained.

Gillen's work on Thor is pretty solid. This: Not so much. It's pretty boring and pointless, and Beast looks like Joe Camel the camel.

Like most of the world I ignored SWORD when it came out. It's another X-Men spin off with the most recognizable characters were Beast, Lockheed and Agent Brand. With no real stars, the book got lost in the crowd and was cancelled after just 5 issues, which has to be some sort of modern record.

But still it had an interesting premise of a double-plus secret agency keeping Earth safe from alien threats. So when I saw a cheap copy on clearance I picked it up and y'know it's pretty darn good. And despite the short run Gillen is able to tell a tight, interesting story that stands on its own. The basic premise is that coniving bureaucrat Henry Gyrich allows several crises to come to a head, thus distracting Agent Brand from his real agenda. So Brand has to deal with three different alien invasions while he conducts a government round up of Earth's alien population.

Watching her run from crisis to crisis dealing with each one coolly and ruthlessly is a lot of fun. The book also introduces her supporting cast including an alien robot in sort of a Hannibal Lector role, giving invaluable advice from his cell while manipulating everyone.

There's guest stars galore and it's easy to see how good this book could have been if it lasted.

Steven Sanders' art is solid and traditional, though this take on the Beast is a bit cartoonish.

I have some nits to pick, like most comics from Marvel and DC the status quo is God so what should have been major events with long term consequences (like rounding up Earth's aliens) are quickly forgotten. Even Gyrich, after driving Earth to the brink of war walks away clean and is returned to his status quo until another writer needs him. Oh well, it's the price of working in a shared universe.

Generally though it's a fun read. If Marvel had initially done this as a limited series I think people would have been clamoring for more but by launching it as a continuing series then quickly pulling the plug they left this book with a stick on failure on it which causes it to be unfairly overlooked.
