Good, But Not For Beginners 3 Jan. 2015
By Daneel Olivaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very well-written and well-drawn book, but it is not the place to start if you are unfamiliar with Excalibur or Warren Ellis' tenure as its writer. This is Book 3 of Ellis' run and it began after nearly 100 previous Excalibur stories by others. Comic books are usually adept at summarizing previous plot points that bear on the current story and this collection is no exception, but these stories came during a time when there were many X-Men titles and the stories and characters did a lot of crossing over.

For maximum enjoyment of this story arc, it helps to know who Douglock, Mountjoy, Amanda Sefton and Margali Szardos are. A general familiarity with the Hellfire Club also helps, as do the basic details of Marvel's famous "Onslaught" event which interrupts this story in major ways. At the very least, you'd find it helpful to be familiar with the first two Excalibur volumes written by Ellis.

All that being said, this is a pretty good book. Ellis juggles the many characters adeptly and the art--most often by Carlos Pacheco alternating with Casey Jones--is very attractive. And the coloring, mostly by Ariana Lenshoek, is often exquisite.

The main story is supplemented with a three-issue mini-series starring Kitty Pride and Peter Wisdom, two Excalibur members who are romantically involved. They team up for a competent but uninvolving adventure to rescue a woman from a serial killer with occult motives.

If you ARE familiar with the characters and concepts I've listed, you should enjoy this book. If not, hopefully I've steered you toward the homework you'd need to do in order to get the most out of this book.
