    Put it this way: catch me in the shop and I'll even BUY an issue for you. Issue #9 is as satisfying an ending as any story has ever received, and if you want to know how good that feels, you'll need to be around for the next arc. Please don't disappoint me. Read Full Review

    Despite being almost overwhelming at times, the latest issue of Captain Britain is loaded with high-quality, high-concept entertainment.
