Lopresti does an admirable job depicting the bleak and devastated Genoshan background, but ultimately the writing is so painfully slow and misguided that most readers will probably lose interest quite quickly. Sadly, Excalibur is a huge let down and as a premier issue misses the mark in almost every conceivable way. Its even more of a disappointment for fans of Claremonts previous work, and a poor attempt from an otherwise brilliant writer. In the end, as a new series one can only hope that the title will develop some modicum of direction. With any luck Claremont will eventually pull his head out of his ass, return to his literary roots, and rediscover what the X-Men are truly all about. Read Full Review
