AS an American COmic Book writer, I can still remember the day I saw Marvel Team-Up #65 on the racks and was introduced to Captain Britain. This character affected and inspired me in many ways. There's a reason why Captain Britain played such a giant supporting role in the Earth X trilogy. This is a collection of works that predated Alan Moore's amazing run by a great number of years. I love this stuff. It has the feel of old Marvel. Which means it may not be literary, but it's a lot of fun.
Trimpe is a master storyteller. And while these stories are not up to Claremont's early X-Men standards, they are still fun in a sort of "How do I recreate Spider-Man as a Captain AMerica from England" kind of way.
So for those who adore the Moore run on the book, these are the stories he was taking from and re-imagining.
I love it. And love Panini for making this (and Knights Of Pendragon soon) available.
