Sorry to bring the topic back to Knights of Pendragon but I've just finished reading volume 2. I actually quite liked. (Barring of course Union Jack's bulky re-design and the ridiculous bike-things they drove around in.) It was a nice blend of the original KoP series and the Marvel UK direction of the time. I'm happy that I bought it.
How rude! The Captain Britain Corps could easily take care of it. Captain Britain, Lady Briton, Ultimate Captain Britain, Caledonia and Lionheart are a match for anyone. (I doubt that'll be the line-up but I still like it.)• The Multiverse Is In Danger, The Captain Britain Corps Is In Shambles And It Is Up To X-Force To Save The Day
Bring back Caledonia!!
AVENGERS UK! A free fan comic here
I'm pleased to say I've got #s 11-13 of volume 1 myself now, so the gaps are being filled in!
As to Caledonia, ONLY bring her back if you can make sense of her, Claremont certainly didn't (he also altered her origin a coupe of times, hoping people wouldn't notice). Personally, I was never a fan of hers but the reason for that lies partly at Claremonts door because he never DID anything with her.
Any Dream worth Having Is A Dream worth Fighting For.
Happily, I've already got Mys-Tech Wars and the other tie-in issues/series. It was obvious to see that Marvel UK's big four were Dark Angel, Death's Head II, Knights of Pendragon and the Warheads. I've enjoyed every minute of reading them all.
Glad you got the issues you needed. The original KoP series was clearly the best, even to me.
More Scottish characters. More WELSH characters for that matter.
But then I am part Scottish and part Welsh.
Always wanted to read this run but always put it to the side and I hear it's been nominated or won a Hugo.
now I've heard that the trades are out of print and if so, is it expensive to get it from sellers?
Well, amazoned it and it was only getting sold by sellers but it wasn't expensive and the only expensive was prt 3 and that sells for $21
And yes, it was nominated for a Hugo. I believe it lost out to Neil Gaiman's 'Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader'. After Batman RIP. But it was a contender. Rightly so, also.
The whole Killcrop concept appears to have been left behind, never returned to in X-Factor. A great shame in my opinion. It was something which I felt was worth exploring. Nightcrawler was probably a killcrop. As would MI13's very own Meggan be, also.
For those who never read those issues, PAD's concept was that a mutant born with powers active from birth (as opposed to those powers developing during puberty) was a 'Killcrop'. There was a suggestion that these individuals were actually a different species to other mutants.
Unfortunately, there hasn't been much in terms of follow up on this storyline. But, as we know, Meggan could probably be included in that bracket. Her powers certainly activated as a baby, with her body spontaneously growing fur.

Alright, when I get paid, I'm definitely going to the trades, thanks for all the help guys/gals
