    Revolutionary War: Knights of Pendragon has all the wit, charm and sarcasm us Brits have become known for but also drives forward the plot of the overall series adding a ton of stuff to this rejuvenated mythology of the Marvel UK branch. Read Full Review

    Revolutionary War " Knights of Pendragon #01 delivers a story that is easily followed, even for those not well-versed in the UK side of Marvel. There are plenty of pop-culture references, sarcastic humor, and a story that felt complete with one issue. The War is just beginning to heat up, and it feels like Marvel UK could really make a comeback. You'll enjoy this issue more if you follow it with tea and crumpets. Otherwise, it'll be an entertaining look at what those crazy Brits have to offer in Marvel. Read Full Review

    If the words “Zombie King Arthur” do anything for you, I assure you that there is a lot more ridiculousness that follows along those same lines in ‘Knight of Pendragon'. There are pacing issues and it gets almost irredeemably goofy in parts, but these characters were clearly a joy for Williams to write. Were they to get their own series again, he'd be an apt choice to write it, and were it a more action-oriented title, Sliney would be a good choice to draw it. This particular one-shot story just didn't completely come together, either as a standalone story or a part of the greater whole that is ‘Revolutionary War'. And unfortunately, I fear they won't get another go-around soon enough. I hope I'm wrong. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jan 31, 2014

    While it is clear that the creative team did try to bring a British comic full of its unique kind of humor and action to a new kind of audience, this issue fails in some key areas, providing for a less than ideal reading experience. There are moments where the ideas are neat and the humor funny, but it becomes too muddled up in its execution to be qualified as a success. Read Full Review
