    Great follow up to Dracula's sneak attacks last issue make up the bulk of this issue. Add quality character moments and solid artwork and it's a Must Read all the way. Read Full Review

    The one real problem stems from the art, as Leonard Kirk is joined by fill-in artist Mike Collins. Collins' scenes are pretty obvious. He's relegated mainly to the slower, more dialogue-centric scenes, but the downgrade in visual quality is still very noticeable. Kirk, for his part, continues to put out solid work. Seeing that this series has already offered 11 issues since its launch last summer, I wouldn't mind it if Marvel chose to slow down a bit. As with many books, I would prefer a less-than-monthly schedule if it meant fill-in artists could be avoided. Captain Britain and the MI:13 remains one of Marvel's top books after all this time, and I see no reason to mess with a winning formula. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, there's a brief blip later in the issue as Kirk hands over to penciller Mike Collins for five pages. There's nothing wrong with Collins' work, and it's fairly similar in style to Kirk's pages, with layouts that feel similar, and identical character designs. However, it is noticeably different to Kirk's work (it's probably as much due to the heavier inking as anything else), and it does pull you out of the story a little. Thankfully, Kirk returns for the last couple of pages to illustrate the issue's climactic scene. Cornell has proved that he has a real knack for exciting cliffhangers, and I can't wait to see where this one leads. Read Full Review
