HUNDRED WORD HIT #19 - MARVEL TALES: CAPTAIN BRITAIN #1
Hundred Word Hit #19
Marvel Tales - Captain Britain #1
Whilst I was initially disappointed to find this was a compilation of reprinted material (it will teach me to read the solicit in future!), reading through I was pleasantly surprised to reacquaint myself with some Captain Britain tales I hadn’t read for years
Essentially this is Chris Claremont and Captain Britain through the eras. We have his origin story with Herb Trimpe art. A great Marvel Team Up two parter with Spider-Man and John Byrne on the pencils. The edition finishes with Excalibur #1 where Alan Davis reprises his work on Captain Britain, and supporting cast, from his old Marvel U.K. days.
A nice compilation for both new and old readers!
