Remember The Phantom Menace? The movie which had an awesome space battle and an awesome swordfight and an awesome motor race and an hour of slightly less awesome politics?

No particular reason why I bring it up... but I did like The Phantom Menace.

Last issue, I said Excalibur was bordering on confusing, this week it's crossed the border and immigrated to Central Confusing City and set up a boutique emporium peddling home-made confusion.

The Sword of Might is presumed to be from Galador? Oh dear, somebody copy-pasted from last week's Cable datasheet.

Nitpicking aside, Excalibur has always been an... esoteric read, but this was just bordering on confusing.
