Qué década la de los 80. He aquí uno de esos clásicos que no envejece. Pura diversión en un cómic deliberadamente informal, un canto al desparpajo heróico que lo da todo en pos del entretenimiento. El culebrón artúrico es potenciado por sus autores y transmutado en un ejercicio de ciencia ficción escapista. Hasta la pésima edición trae recuerdos de cuando leer tebeos era un puro disfrute alejado de intelectualismos y requiebros. Y qué dibujos de Bolland. A veces, una inmersión en el pasado, incl ...more

No puedo sentirme más feliz de que esta obra haya llegado a mi vida.
A pesar de ser una historia futurista y que la Ciencia Ficción no sea mi género, el leer una obra acerca del Rey Arturo en un cómic de 300 páginas, con ilustraciones bellísimas y con un tema que me encanta -y que jamás esperé- como la reencarnación, ha hecho que definitivamente este sea uno de mis libros favoritos del 2017.
Además, no solo es acción con mezcla de fantasía y la tecnología del año 3000, sino que logra envolverte e

Recommends it for: comics fans of a certain—or any—age
When I first read Camelot 3000, the first direct-market comic published by DC, it was in the individual issues, and as back issues that I had picked up somewhere. Since then, I've read almost every Outsiders comic written by Camelot 3000 writer Mike W. Barr, and in retrospect, Batman and the Outsiders was more than a bit clumsy, and often heavy-handed in its politics. So when I re-read Camelot 3000, I was expecting a frankly substandard effort from Barr, despite the always-gorgeous art from Bria ...more

Adaptación de las leyendas artúricas en el futuro, con invasión alienígena incluida... en su momento esta maxi-serie (que al ser independiente cumple como novela gráfica) fue innovadora por varias razones, fue de los primeros cómics que se crearon para su venta exclusiva en tiendas especializadas, por lo que al no venderse en kioskos no estuvo sujeta al comic code estadounidense, lo que permitió que los autores se tomaran algunas libertades.

Como no puede ser de otra manera se repiten todos los c

You know what's really great about late 80s DC? It's subtle subversity. I mean, Sir Tristan being reicarned as a woman, a man trapped in a woman's body, but still loving Isolade who is also reincarnated as a woman? Now, reading something like that would be cheesy or cliched, but back then, it's pretty groundbreaking. It's really to bad the rest of the GN couldn't take it's queue from that and evolve into a more compelling story.

Obra maestra. Clásico imprescindible.

En el año 3000 una ocasión alienigena amenaza la Tierra. Tal y como se predijo, Arturo vuelve para ayudar a Inglaterra en su mayor necesidad, y muchos más de los personajes de su leyenda vienen con él, para bien y para mal.

Es un clásico irrepetible. Se debe leer.

Tras leer sobre las leyendas artúricas junto a Steinbeck, y a falta de profundizar en hechos como la búsqueda del Grial, caballeros como Galahad, Tristan, Mordred o la muerte de Arturo de mano de la obra de Sir Thomas Malory, me decidí a lanzarme con esta particular versión de los mitos.

Situados en el año 3000, este cómic nos traslada al regreso del rey Arturo ya que la profecía lo dice: cuando Inglaterra (y el mundo) más lo necesite, Arturo volverá. Así, el rey vuelve en plena invasión alieníge

I first read this when I was 14, and it completely blew my mind. This was in the early 90s, and I'd never before encountered a comicbook that explored the themes that this one did. This was probably the collection that cemented my admiration for the art form, for its ability to convey messages that art and text on their own just couldn't quite manage. I've always looked back on this series with an extreme, 5-star fondness.

Recently, my best friend expressed an interest in reading more comics, and

La Saga Arturiana nel futuro

Barr ha preso elementi tipici della saga arturiana (l’amore di Artù per Ginevra, l’amore di Ginevra per Lancillotto con il conseguente successivo tradimento, Morgana sorellastra e nemica di Artù, giusto per citare quelli più noti, ma si potrebbe andare avanti a lungo) e li ha trasposti nell’anno 3000, in una Terra invasa e sottomessa da alieni; una Terra, insomma, che ricalca la terra originaria di Artù che la unificò contro i barbari e così fa l’Artù del 3000 unifica

This is the series that sparked my interest in all things Arthurian way back in the early 80s. In this story Artur awakes to a world that needs him. He is reunited with Merlin, six of his knights, Guinevere and a young man who who awakens him Tom. Together they fight Morgan La Fey and her minions for the entire planet.

The story holds up well and is actually very modern in its treatment of women. Guinevere in her modern form is the commander of Earth defenses and a warrior in her own right. Tris
