If there's one thing to say about Captain Britain and MI:13 it's that this is a series that shouldn't end. Although this annual leans towards the second half in terms of story success, Cornell is a true genius when it comes to writing about the more obscure Marvel heroes.

Tempted to say Avoid It for this based on how disappointing the Meggan half of the story was, but the backup story does go a long way to redeeming it and was much more in line with how the series typically reads. I do feel that this is probably something only current readers of the series or longtime fans of Meggan will enjoy, so I wouldn't go rushing out to pick it up as an introduction to the much talked about series. For that, go back and start with the first trade or this Vampire State storyarc. Read Full Review
