Very enjoyable collection of Alan Davis written/drawn sequels/addenda to his CLANDESTINE work(s). All characters spot-on, fun, and not just plot-puppets. Highly recommended if you like Davis' own Clan Destine characters and concepts that tie this collection together.

Alan Davis raises the question here of contemporary comics: is it ever okay for a hero to kill? And is that hero really a hero if s/he kills? That question was buried in the original ClanDestine series back in 1994/95, when every character had a leather jacket and was Blood-something or Kill-that. It's an even more important question now, as it's like a right of passage for heroes to kill in contemporary comics. I'm not terribly comfortable with that, and I imagine that Davis isn't, either, sinc ...more

I've always had an uneasy feeling about Alan Davis' Clan Destine family of mystic mutants. It's always come across as a bit over-indulgent and fan-ficky. ("Ooooh, I have my special characters that have been around in the Marvel Universe for centuries, involved in all sorts of stuff, but only I get to play with them").

It helps, though, that they're an interesting bunch, and that the basic morality play of how their internal differences, and their desire to stay secret, and the next generation co

It says Marvel Tales on the title but really it's just three stories, Daredevil, Fantastic Four and Wolverine, with glorified cameos from various members of ClanDestine. And a Thor story thrown in just for the fun of it. There's nothing wrong with the stories individually, but if you're not a fan of ClanDestine you won't have any clue what's going on, nor will you care for this random bunch of Brits suddenly tussling with some of Marvel's finest. If you are a fan of ClanDestine the whole thing i ...more

Drawing or writing, I have always liked Alan Davis' work. I was disappointed that the Clandestine never really caught on. They are great and different characters that could provide a little bit of uniqueness in a Marvel Universe that keeps rebooting to try and be different by doing the same thing.

M'agrada molt el dibuix de Davis, però les històries de Clandestine són confuses i avorrides. Però és que la de Lobezno és encara pitjor. Només m'ha fet gràcia la tonteria de Hulka.

A collection of four annuals written and drawn by Davis, three of which are interrelated and involve Davis's ClanDestine characters. Gorgeous art, as always from Davis.
