X-Lapsed is back in Otherworld… welp, it was nice while it lasted, eh?

Today’s issue takes us toward the Starlight Citadel so Betsy Britain can find out why she has been forsaken by the place – after all, she is Captain Britain… stands to reason she ought to be able to visit the place where the Captain Britain Corps used to hang out, no?

Also: Great listener mail – more discussion of the controversial Crucible… and perhaps the even more controversial, Fallen Angels miniseries!

    It's interesting that you described this issue as not being a red issue but in the light of reading Ecchs of Tens I can tell you that this actually is a red issue. In fact it explains loads of stuff that I didn't understand when reading the first few weeks of Ecchs of Tens. I get more and more worried that you are going to hate Ecchs of Tens when you get there. Personally I am loving that crossover so I am finding myself loving Otherworld stories for the first time. Even Alan Moore couldn't cause me to care about Otherworld until now. I'm not sure if I'm just suffering from the comics variant of Stockholm Syndrome.

    Where we agree wholeheartedly is on Marcus To's art. He is getting better and better every month and is particularly suited to interpersonal relationships which I also believe is Tini Howard's biggest strength.
