    Huh. Well that was disappointing. First I was confused, so many characters and I didn't really know any of them (except Blade and that's only from the films). And we don't spend enough time with them to learn anything about them. The focus is all on the vampires. So, I paused and read the wiki page on Captain Britain (which at least explained why there appeared to be two of them). Then everything kicked off and it got quite exciting, except we stop mid action for a mind numbingly boring issue on M Huh. Well that was disappointing.

Then everything kicked off and it got quite exciting, except we stop mid action for a mind numbingly boring issue on Meggan (Cap Britain's formerly dead (?) wife) and something to do with hell. Which is followed by a cricket match that I found amusing for the cricket stuff but CB kept thinking of wife which dragged it down to boredom level again. Plus I couldn't work out when this match was taking place, did they pause in the middle of a vampire invasion to play cricket? I don't think so but who knows, not me! Favourite characters: the crusader and the Muslim - Dane, The Black Knight, and Dr Faiza Hussain, his steward. Pleased to see a positive portrayal of a British Muslim woman in a hijab.

    Really enjoyed reading this, the other two led into it quite well and altogether ended up loving the chemistry between the characters. Blade absolutely knocking it out the park with nods to the rest of the marvel universe. I haven't consumed any media with vampires in for a while so it felt quite refreshing.

    Not 5 stars because of faiza and Dane kiss in the last issue, it was really unnecessary, also don't allign with Islamic values, just another "Muslim girl fall for white boy" trope which makes it unrealistic, other than that story and art were really good, Paul making Dracula Islamophobic was funny as hell, this rendition of him makes me hate Dracula but he's really well written character Not 5 stars because of faiza and Dane kiss in the last issue, it was really unnecessary, also don't allign with Islamic values, just another "Muslim girl fall for white boy" trope which makes it unrealistic, other than that story and art were really good, Paul making Dracula Islamophobic was funny as hell, this rendition of him makes me hate Dracula but he's really well written character

    This book continued to improve and its a shame that it didn't get more time to really find its feet, because I think it could have been great. This book continued to improve and its a shame that it didn't get more time to really find its feet, because I think it could have been great.

    I was not a big fan of Dracula as a villain, but the team dynamics was fun to watch. Relationships are built and tested. A great end to the series, but leaves you wanting more.

    This series has been my first real foray into Marvel's UK-based characters and I'm definitely interested in seeing more of them. The first two volumes suffered a bit from being set in the middle of an Event and then being the scene-setting middle volume, but this was a really solid wrap-up to the storyline. Some twists, some Doom-dickery,and a batshit crazy vampire invasion plan involving Dracula's moonbase. It's a shame the series ended here; I think it was really gelling into a solid title.

    Well plotted and wrapped the storyline up nicely. Not an espionage story, like Checkmate, that I had expected or something along the lines of what Greg Rucka would do, I suppose. Lots of clever magic and action and vampires and romance. There's an annual issues/storyline that's shoved into just prior to the very last chapter and having read it, I wished I hadn't wasted my time: it was all about Cricket. I have to say this British author really brings the British lingo onto the comics page. I fel Well plotted and wrapped the storyline up nicely.

But how odd, despite the title Captain Britain...he's hardly the principal character and he's far removed in personality as I remember him back when I read Chris Claremont in my jr high and high school days/daze. Not even a word about his battle of alcoholism, which was a 90s mainstay at least when Excalibur launched. I guess that's to be expected with a corporate character, still, I enjoyed reading the 3 trades, I guess I was expecting more focus on a single character instead of a large ensemble.

    No matter how many times I tell my friends about this book, it's hard to make a plot like "British superheroes fight off Dracula's vampire invasion from the moon" sound like something they'd want to read. But it is. Really. I swear. Hand to God. Paul Cornell's series gets a fantastic swan song with this collection, which is full of adventure, tragedy, love, and just a little bit of humor.

Several plot devices from the previous collections return to play in the final story. Blade's presence on the team? Fully justified. The re-appearance of Captain Britain's wife? Fleshed out in a way that makes a lot of sense. Pete Wisdom? Still a devious bastard whose schemes will undoubtedly make you grin. Oh, and even several Marvel UK characters get a proper tribute that will make fans of those 90s comics squeal with glee. It's a shame that Captain Britain and MI-13 didn't last longer, but the entire series was better than most other comics Marvel ever put out and it's nice to see a deserving series get a proper finale.

    http://nwhyte.livejournal.com/1435061.html I found this quite difficult to get into. I'm not familiar with Captain Britain as a character, and the two-paragraph synopsis was not sufficient for me to get the characters sorted out in my mind. So I spent some time wondering who I was meant to care about in the story. (And who was the rather cute woman who apparently gets torn in half on page 31, never to be mentioned again?)

Apart from that (fairly major) gripe, I did like the two main elements of the plot - the story of Captain Britain and his friends using cunning subterfuge to defeat a planned invasion of vampires from space led by Dracula, and the escape of our hero's wife from Hell. Also I fundamentally approve of Cornell's rewriting of Britishness as an inclusive project - here the vampires are the bigots obsessed with religious purity. And the artwork is rather gorgeous.

    The pros: This story is a showcase for the Peter Wisdom character as the whole outcome pivots on his involvement as leader of MI13. This British paranormal service was something new to me and I would be interested in finding out more about it and its leader and it is the reason I have given it 3 stars rather than a lower rating. The cons: I wasn't particularly impressed with the premise of the villain's plot or such things as using ballistically-fired vampires as weapons—which was just plain sill The pros: This story is a showcase for the Peter Wisdom character as the whole outcome pivots on his involvement as leader of MI13.

The cons: I wasn't particularly impressed with the premise of the villain's plot or such things as using ballistically-fired vampires as weapons—which was just plain silly as far as I'm concerned. To my mind the whole story also suffered with its lack of properly showing the scale of the distances involved, which were considerable but were treated with a lot of handwaving. N.B. It was nice to see the creators include the recovery of the Black Knight's black sword from where it had been lost in an earlier graphic novel. It's nice to see some continuity being honoured in these things. Nuff said. Your mileage may differ.

    What made me first look into Captain Britain and MI13 was picking up an issue at a comic store and flipping open to a page showing Dr. Doom meeting Dracula on the moon. I realized instantly that one image summed up pretty much everything I read comics for, and I knew I had to read the series it came from. So far I've not been disappointed.

Captain Britain and MI13 is everything I'd do if you put me in charge of a group of second-string superheroes in the Marvel universe, only distinctly more British. It's brilliant and awesome and pretty much everything I could ask for from a superhero comic. This trade finally contains the issue that sold me on the series to begin with, and it's exactly as great as I'd hoped. If you have any interest at all in superhero comics and you haven't checked out Captain Britain and MI13, get on it!

    Even though this third volume is the last for Captain Britain and allies, this final story-arc brings full circle many of the plot threads begun back in volume one: Jaqueline/Spitfire's vampirism, Brian/Captain Britain's lost-love Megan, and the introduction of the character of Faiza, who became the Black Knight's steward.

It may not have been the best series, but Captain Britain and MI13 was a decent superhero team series that showed promise. And written by one of the best TV writers in the sci-fi genre, Paul Cornell. Would that it had a chance to live out a few years longer -- as opposed to a mere fifteen issues -- this had to the potential to become a better series that could have rivaled most of what the House of Marvel churns out every month. Here's hoping that Cornell & Co have moved onto greener pastures.

    Paul Cornell's take on the British MARVEL super heroes is entertaining and clever. In this trade, Dracula has planned to take over the UK so that the vampires will have a homeland. After a meeting with Doctor Doom in Dracula's castle on the moon, the vampire lord ramps up his plans. Part of the plan, firing vampires toward the Earth with a cannon. And that is just the first part of the awesome. The story shows the chess game between the two sides in the conflict and the action is great.

    Dr. Who writer's Paul Cornell's take on Marvel Comics' British superheroes came to an end just as I think the series had finally found its footing. In this volume Dracula declares war on Britain with the intent of founding a nation for all of Earth's vampires. There are cameos by Marvel UK characters rarely seen in US comics, and a nice surprise return of one character. I also want to give Cornell credit for introducing a positive portrayal of a British Muslim character with Dr. Faiza Hussain.

    The final arc of one of the best titles that came out last decade. Paul Cornell is a great writer,and shows this title to be inventive, inspiring, and it had great storytelling. Leonard Kirk is a great artist,but the pencil was rush towards the end, but it was still well-rendered. It breaks my heart that this title was cancelled, but it will still remain in my heart and views on how comic books should be!

    A group of second-string superheroes—including Captain Britain, Blade, and The Black Knight—team up in England to fight an army of undead led by Dracula. This is a run of the mill story, most likely nominated for the 2010 Hugo Award Graphic Story because it was written by a Doctor Who writer with a well organized fan base.

    This was a good read, its good to see a Marvel story set in the UK instead of New York. It had great artwork, and a good cast of characters. I remember reading the first lot of Captain Britain stories in the mid 70's, this was a slightly different take on the character, but was very good. A worthy read.....

    Paul Cornell’s British superteam face an invasion from Dracula himself and his vampire army. Cornell provides a distinctively modern British take on the superhero genre with plenty of little cultural nods, including a game of cricket. Tremendously entertaining, despite what might be seen as a narrative cheat in the middle of the story.

    Awesome. Thank you, Paul Cornell, for basically everything in this story, but specifically for showing two parallel women with similar choices having the agency to make their own decisions. Fantastic.

    I just could not get into this story at all, and that is a shame. I usually enjoy Captain Britain and his exploits, but here, not sure, I think they tried to cram too much in and made everything really complicated.

    This was the first one of these I'd read. I liked it, though not to start with. Perhaps it was because I didn't know the characters. And it's always a bit groan worthy when it's Dracula...
