The Last War in Albion

Photoblog of The Last War in Albion, an ongoing history of British comics. Full blog at lastwarinalbion.com


This Swamp Thing chapter is going to start having some serious issues if I keep spending 1500 words on every single issue.

Which is something of a problem, as I’m not sure there’s an issue of Moore’s Swamp Thing run that can’t sustain 1500 words of criticism.

Honestly, I just really love seeing Last War in Albion posts in the “tableau of images” format. Although this one, being overwhelmingly black and white comics pages drawn by Alan Davis, is perhaps not the most visually striking tableau. 

In any case, there’s a new Last War in Albion post, on Dave Thorpe’s Captain Britain run, up here

Fuck.

Tragically, I did not have room for Captain Britain’s Fun Page in tomorrow’s post, and so I leave it here as an exercise for the reader.
