Wow. I can't believe that this cost $3. Put the backstory of the Captain Britain Corps up on Wikipedia and save the world money, Claremont.
NEX shows up for a page to be like "WHAT ABOUT ALBION?!"
Albion is training Lionheart. She asks if he knows Mr. Boring aka Brian Braddock.
We learn that Albion comes from a WAR-TORN WORLD where he got the SWORD from MERLIN and ROMA doesn't like him. He goes around killing random people and some fat genie looking things.
OMG WE FIND OUT ALBION IS BRIAN BRADDOCK! OMGZ DOPPLEGANGER.
And then we flashout of the flashback and Lionheart and Albion have teamed up with BLACK AIR and the DARK X-MEN!!! OH NOES!
Seriously. Boring as all get out. Dopplegangers. Merlin. Roma. Cross-time. Some Genie things. Literally 2 pages of New Excalibur themselves, and no -- no Nocturne.
GRADE: F. This series really hit the seal of bad. It's not even Sanjaya Malakar bad. It's just bad.
EDIT: To show how open I am to discussion on the issue, I now embed Beast's LONG SUMMARY of this very brief read in the first post!
