Recently, my best friend expressed an interest in reading more cammelot, and I thought I’d get this for him for his birthday the Deluxe edition, with a spoiler-tastic Mike Barr intro. Again, if you remember the limitations of the time, it’s easier to admire.
The series follows the adventures of King ArthurMerlin and the reincarnated Knights of the Round Table as they reemerge in an overpopulated future world of A.

Camelot 3000 #1 – 12 (1982-1985)
The story is quite obviously dated, but if you keep in mind that it was written in the 300, you can easily see how it refused to conform to stereotypes and it’s still really nice to see that Sir Gawain didn’t die first, I’m just saying. I am not an expert on comics, yes I like to read marvel comics but by no means I am an expert of DC or in general comicbooks. The adaptation of Le Morte d’Arthur to science fiction conventions is smooth and clever, and even the “improvements” thereto, in the form of the characters’ “do-overs”, so to speak, make fine work of the original material.
So when I re- read CamelotI was expecting a frankly substandard effort from Barr, despite the always-gorgeous eespaol 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. Sir Galahad is changed from an idealized version of the Christian knight to a samurai and devout adherent of bushido.
Eventually, I was able to procure a few back issues, one with a tantalizing picture of a scantily clad and futuristic Morgan le Fay that occupied many of teenage fantasies for years to come. Barrand in retrospect, Batman and the Outsiders was more than a bit clumsy, and often heavy-handed in its politics.
Camelot by Mike W. Barr
The futuristic setting is not distracting, because more focus is given to how these characters inherit their legacies particularly Sir Tristan, whose plotline is probably the most fascinating and how they lead earth against Very cool reimagining of the Arthurian legend as the prophecy of Arthur’s return is fulfilled Want to Epaol Currently Reading Read.

After this, I have to say that I found some moments really hilarious and ridiculous, like how some of the charactera had a single trait that defined them and they just repeated it over and over again especially Gawain who basically only talked about his need to see again his family, or Galahad all about his honour, camflot sometimes it happened even with Tristan and some other situations and characterizations a bit too This was in the early 90s, and I’d never before encountered a comicbook that explored the themes that this cameot did.
It’s repetitive, both because it literally already happened and because it happened again in the same time. I wasn’t super impressed with this one.

The story line is standard fare for a comic of its time and I am surprised there has not been a film version in this era of superheroes and high tech battles. I’ve always looked back on this series with an extreme, 5-star fondness.
After Modred’s birth, he had been taken away by a peasant woman to be hidden from Arthur, but she was intercepted by Sirs Kay and Tristan. Their enduring love for one another eventually triumphs, and the two become lovers.
I first read this comic series when I was 12 years old. This is the series that sparked my interest in all things Arthurian way back in the early 80s.
This book is a collection of the first comic book maxi-series, as claimed in the introduction by Don and Maggie Thompson. As such, only two pages specifically, the first two pages of issue 2 were produced in this manner.
Bruce Patterson Terry Austin. Tris This is the series that sparked my interest in all things Arthurian way back in the early 80s. Barr was never better than when he published Camelot —and the behind-the-scenes production information at the back canelot my volume is enlightening—and Bolland’s art would only get better over time, and he would eventually shine strongly as part of the burgeoning British Invasion of comics talent of that era.

The writer even admitted he was very unfamiliar with the Arthur legend before beginning this comic.
