    On one hand I feel like a hack when I continually praise Captain Britain every month, but it really is one of the best Marvel books out at the moment. When it comes to a quirky and unique take on superheroics featuring a number of characters you know and love, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better title than Cap. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Andrew C. Murphy Nov 17, 2008

    The art is pretty good, but the writing lacks the sort of depth that would make me really care about the characters. I have to admit, I haven't read Captain Britain since Alan Moore wrote him, so a lot of the details of the book don't mean much to me, but I imagine a lot of readers are in the same situation. Cornell has the rest of this plot line to convince readers that he can make this book work, otherwise I don't think it'll be around much longer. Read Full Review

    Even with these weaknesses, Captain Britain is still proving itself to be an above-average title with clear potential, with very solid artwork and a writer who clearly has a strong overall plan for the book in mind. This just happens to be one of the less engaging issues to be released so far. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 25, 2008

    This series reminds me of the recently-departed Checkmate, in that it has a lot of characters who have played relatively minor roles in other series, working together with a common goal. Writer Paul Cornell does make it a very British book, which is a definite plus for Marvel. Too often, their heroes all seem to be stuck in New York together. The art, by Leonard Kirk, is very well done, though I'm not too keen on the Black Knight's t-shirt, jeans, leather jacket and giant heraldic helmet combo. Faiza Hussain is turning into an interesting P.O.V. character, but this issue, while interesting, feels a bit rushed. Perhaps it's just a matter of the pacing, but I might have wanted more "Heart's Desire" scenes interwoven in, and more time devoted to Blade and Spitfire. Over all, though, it's an interesing issue of one of Marvel's more eclectic titles, and keeps me interested in coming back next month. Captain Britain and MI:13 #7 earns 3 out of 5 stars, with the hope that they m Read Full Review
