What a shame that this series got the axe! It's one of the best books Marvel puts out there. I wish they will continue it in the form of mini-series. But about the book:
Chris Cornell writes a damn good Captain Britain. I think his is the best take on the character since Alan Moore. It's quirky, bizarre and very funny. You see Spitfire meeting up with her old ex Union Jack, Blade (who I - and probably everybody else - forget is British) joins the team, The Black Knight meeting Faiza's parents and, oh yeah, hell coming to Birmingham!

In what is a crying shame this is the 2nd part of what will only be 3 trade paperbacks or 15 issues and an Annual of MI13. But, this sad fact will make this run a classic. It is here that most of the characterisation and ground is set for the big final. Don't buy this one, buy all three and you won't be sorry. We will talk about this run in a few years in the same way as old people like me talk about the Moore years of Captain Britain.

'Hell Comes to Birmingham' was not, as I expected, a history of the city's post-war redevelopment, and was distinctly lacking in any information about the infamous inner ring-road. Despite this disappointment, it turns out to be a pretty decent book.

In the author's foreward (which I recommend not reading, as it gives away some of the story), Paul Cornell, talks about wanting to write about somewhere other than London. Admirable perhaps, but irrelevant, since the city depicted is entirely anonymous, with not a single cylindrical or hub-cap covered building in sight.

Initially I was unimpressed. As a part time dabbler in the Marvel universe, I find it frustrating how often the stories are laced with references to previous incarnations of the franchise. Obviously, some of this is to be expected, but there were great swathes of references that passed me by. As a result, I found the story rather flat, not helped by the rather two-dimensional drawings.

Nevertheless, about half-way through I found myself being pulled into the story, which involves a 'Duke of Hell' trying to take up residence in a West Midlands apartment block. (The exact purpose of this passed me by a little, but I could see it was 'A Bad Thing'!). The team, a jarring bunch of misfits, if ever there was one, have to overcome an amoral villain, with the power to offer you your heart's desire. The story's conclusion is compelling and the denouement very good. The final panels contain a teaser for volume three, which on the strength of this improved second chapter, I soon hope to read.

As good as, or maybe better than the fisrt, a good idea to get Captain Britain secret invasion first, so you can follow the story , with brilliant art and great writng from Paul Cornell!!
