I didn't know if I wanted to review Excalibur #1 or not. It's not that I thought it was bad. It really doesn't seem much like an X-book. Of course, then I realized that at its best, the original Excalibur didn't seem like one, either. I gave it a second read through.
We're back with an new review of an old comic, Excalibur #1. This time we go back to the late 80s when Marvel started spinning off its popular Uncanny X-Men title. Wolverine's regular series came along about this same time. After the X-Men had apparently died in their own title, a few of the team members left behind joined with Captain Britain to form Excalibur, complete with a new series written by Chris Claremont and drawn by a fan favorite artist who just happened to have a history with Captain Britain, Alan Davis.
