    Very obviously, Dane Whitman is one of my favourite Marvel characters and I always hoped he'd dress in a more civilised way as in this book. I also think Captain Britain is a fun character and Pete Wisdom (who I imagine is in it). I'm English. I'm a tiny bit responsible for the cancellation of this book because I'm not buying it.


Having a book set in your home country shouldn't make you responsible to purchase the title. I'm Canadian, and a huge Alpha Flight fan. That being said, outside of John Byrne's original run, the Alpha books have never had a lot of Canadian content even when it would have been really easy to insert some. I only bought the third volume of Alpha Flight for completion's sake since it was bloody horrible.

I didn't read the latest Captain Britain book, mostly due to budget constraints and trying not to start new titles, but did it have any British content or flavour?

hello my name is matt mash and i am a recovering completionist.

...completionists are the people who keep comics so shitty by buying awful comics out of a bad habit. plus they end up spending their money on garbage, so not only does marvel keep producing that garbage, but also these people aren't wasting that money on a thousand horrid x- and wolverine books when they could be supporting good books that never last. if everyone voted with their wallets comics as a whole would be much better.

i have no respect whatsoever for completionism.
