    I loved the sequence where Saturnyne was explaining to Betsy how much Brian Braddock was an ally to her and her people and seeing all the other Captain Britains was also a bit of a thrill. I still find myself a little unsure in regards to the sides in this book given that nothing seems to be straightforward or very black and white, but I guess that is why am enjoying the story.

    While reading this, I kept thinking about how Apocalypse is a kind of wizard, but in many ways, he's working magic is if it were science. His actions have mystical qualities, but there are also rules that are helpfully laid out in data pages. As we all know, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The events of Excalibur #12 commit to an action, and so it appears X of Swords is that reaction. Nothing is wasted and, much like reading this series, you'll be hanging on every word curious about what the new dawn brings. Read Full Review

    Excalibur #12 takes one of the most poorly designed and written relics from Marvel Comics in the 90s and transforms the Externals into a compelling piece of its narrative. Read Full Review
