    I really can't express how good this series has been since day one and it's only been getting better as it goes along. Do yourself a favour and either grab the first trade or jump in on this Dracula storyline. You won't regret it. Read Full Review

    Leonard Kirk continues to hold his own as well. Especially impressive are Kirk's renderings of Castle Dracula and its dank hallways. His Earth settings are a bit dull by comparison, but in general the book is quite pleasing to the eye. Once again, I'm convinced this is Marvel's best team book on the market, and you're doing yourself a serious disservice if you pass it over in favor of another. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Apr 11, 2009

    I really can't recommend Captain Britain enough. The writing is damn near perfect, the artwork is always pleasing, and the stories are a brilliant mix of insane and intelligent. It's just good stuff all around. Read Full Review

    "Captain Britain and MI: 13" is a fun book, one that (to use an old chestnut) is more than the sum of its parts. Hopefully it'll be around for a second year (and much more), because this first year has been a blast and a half. Check it out, you'll thank me later. Read Full Review

    *** Thor's back! It's Thor! Oh wait, it's actually a hitherto unknown robot clone of Thor which has nothing to do with the story and is just included to give everyone the wrong idea. Read Full Review

    Obviously Paul Cornell has some skill as a writer because the characters personalities did shine through and they were compelling, but I found the story itself to be pretty uninteresting and largely incomprehensible. I’m giving the book a D+. It wasn’t bad enough to deserve an F, but I had heard such good things and had a lot of high hopes for this book, only to find them dashed upon the rocks. Captain Britain does have a really cool costume though, and that also helped me hate it slightly less. Read Full Review
