Subj: Excalibur's Cross-Time Caper
Posted: Sat May 03, 2014 at 01:49:33 am EDT (Viewed 19 times)

So, what's the prevailing opinion on the Cross-Time Caper story line? It's something that I always considered a "classic" run, but I'm re-reading it now, and it seems to have lost it's luster. The first few issues were fine, in the novel absurdity of randomly crossing realities in a Nazi train; but I've hit a couple issues in a row where the story telling just doesn't work, and it's causing me to look back at the whole thing a bit more critically.

Claremont's dialogue just seems SO Claremont. Maybe too much so. And there isn't much point to any of these alternate realities. There have been times where I was certain I must have been skipping a page, but sadly, no.

Any defenders out there? Anyone want to confirm my re-evaluation of the story?
