There are all sorts of reasons this series shouldn't work.

I mean, it's set in England. That, like, almost never happens in American comics.

I was a little (probably quite unfairly) hesitant about reading this. It's a long-standing tradition that American writers can't write British accents well. But then I remembered that Jamie Delano is English himself. Regardless, I needn't have worried. Other writers have often done a bad job with Captain Britain (see Uncanny X-Force volume 4 if you need to un

This is the book that got me excited about Captain Britain and led right into Excalibur, one of my personal favorite Marvel titles of all-time. Alan Davis' art has certainly improved over the years but you can see from this volume that his style really hasn't changed much at all. Plenty of interesting characters that cross over into Excalibur as well, characters that those readers might not really have understood fully if they hadn't read this collection first. Most importantly, I think this jus ...more
Alan Davis is fantastic. I think his art here is probably the best I've ever seen it. He inks himself here, and he uses a lot of bold, thick lines and lots of shading, unlike his usual inkers (Farmer and Neary) who tend to give his work a bit more of a cartoony look. No disrespect to Farmer and Neary, but I actually prefer the moodier look Davis' inks give these comics. Strong layouts, great expressions and body language, a flair for depicting the fantastic, excellent character design, Alan does ...more
It's so much fun to read these comics, since as an American, it's a universe with which I am totally unfamiliar. Besides the typically beautiful art of Alan Davis, the stories also show a plethora of new and creative concepts and characters. Fun!

These stories are the last issues of the British series before Excalibur started. Introduced Meagan and how Betsy Bradock(psylocke) lost her eyes.
Always a big fan of Alan Davis

This is one of the craziest books I've ever read. It goes from one insane adventure to the next. It is full of imagination and surprises.
This is the last run of Captain Britain before Excalibur. This are the issues after Alan Moore's run and they wrap up the series. They have that feeling of British weirdness that I like and have since found in Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol run.
