They discover that Morgan le Fay is behind the alien attacks and so old conflicts are renewed.
May 15, Mark rated it it was amazing. Preview — Camelot by Mike W. In it’s hour of need, King Arthur, it’s greatest defender, is reborn. As such, only two pages specifically, the first two pages of issue 2 were produced in this manner. Instead, about something I really love there is without any doubts the character of Tristan. The story holds up well and is actually very modern in its treatment of women.
So when I re- read CamelotI was expecting a frankly substandard effort from Barr, despite the always-gorgeous art from Bria When I first read Camelotthe first direct-market comic published by DC, it was in the individual issues, and as back issues that I had picked up somewhere.

However, if a good scriptwriter came along and tweaked the story, it could one day make a fun, kitschy movie. Ultimately, this is not the return of Eslaol I was waiting for. The revival of legendary King Arthur who wakes up in the year and subsequently joins the battle for Earth against an alien invasion 300 by Morgan la Fey! One of Arthur’s nights is reborn as a woman, yet still loves the woman of his past life who was also reincarnated.
Published October esspaol by DC Comics first published Still, the series did explore some topics that have now come to the fore in terms of gender; the “Tristan” part of the story was well ahead of its time.
I’ll be rereading this, I’m sure, knowing the historical significance of the book as a forerunner of what s comics became. It is the year and Britain is under attack by relentless aliens from the solar system’s tenth planet.
Of course, this comic book was bit difficult to procure, as I lived on a tropical island where only mainstream superhero comics made it to the newsstands. Barr and artist Brian Bolland pushed the limits of the conventional comic book with Camelot The art still holds up, though.

I admit with a little guilt that I then went in for a quick trip down Memory Lane. Now, about caemlot reinterpretations I think the comic suffered from the lack of a single POV.
