Sometimes words fail me when writing about Captain Britain and todays post is no exception as I bring you a tale about one of the times Cap bit the dust, nothing new about that you might say well this time there is, as all the action and death takes place off panel.
This oddest of deaths needn’t have happened as things were looking good for Cap, Alan Davis had just finished his Excalibur run tying up a lot of continuity problems while writing and drawing excellent stories and things for Excalibur and Captain Britain never looked stronger, until this happend.
Yes in the space between Davis’ last issue and Scot Lobdell’s first Captain Britain ” dies, ” off panel, with only a very weak explanation. Of course this being comics Cap soon returns as the mullet headed Britannic whose story is so complicated it’s worth a post of its own.
Anyway my favourite part of this article was finding out what other writers thought of all this tom foolery, which is best seen here in ClanDestine issue 10 ( an Alan Davis creation.)
And I must say I heartily agree with him.
