    Overall this book continues to dive deep into magic and bring us tons of Otherworld lore. There's some bold things that happen in this issue and they have me very excited to see the impact they will have not only on Otherworld, but Krakoa as well. Read Full Review

    For older fans of Excalibur its nice to see Meggan continuing to play a role in this story and to be able to have a voice of her own. Although, I do wish her and Jubilee would have more of an impact like the other characters do. I am very curious how this creative team will reveal what Merlin has planned with Arthur.

    Even with a time jump, the latest issue of Excalibur is still pretty overstuffed with long building unresolved plotlines that just continue to be built upon. There are engaging really great action pieces and moments that are beautifully rendered by the art team that helps make the issue move along somewhat. That being said, a break from Otherworld at this point might really help this book find some new ground, and find more for most of the cast to actually do. Read Full Review

    There is still so much magical confusion mixed with partial plots and underdeveloped character voices. And frankly, I think the stories have way too many characters for Howard to handle at one time. In order to save this series, we need a new creative team or a new focus centered around Captain Britain. Now, even though EXCALIBUR #22 offers an intriguing setup with Merlyn, Saturnyne, and Captain Britain for the future, I cant help but feel like this series is on thin ice. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God bless! Read Full Review

    Excalibur #22 is a transitory chapter and, while what comes next seems ready to reinvent this series, much of what readers have to find here will be a familiar breakdown of the past while the future is still being considered. Read Full Review
