Issue Review

Very different to the previous issue. Lots of story, and several locations. It still feels like it is being made up as it goes along, and the characters make some questionable connections of logic, but itís not completely terrible. 5/10

  That made NO sense.

  That made so little sense that I think, at least in my version, the pages were in the wrong order.

  And now I realize why this made so little sense, my version had pages from the next issue mixed in.  

  squidfishious @ skalchemist (original post):

  And yet, the fact that that wasn't immediately obvious doesn't really speak well for this plot line. Terrible.

  In the 19th issue they explain that they messed up and printed pages from issue 18 in with 17. This makes it feel a bit like Groundhog Day.

  Confusing story is confusingly confusing.

  I'm not able to find these issues anywhere, so I'm reading a pretty detailed summary. Just based on that, it sounds really good, so it's interesting that the comics are not getting good reviews.

  Would a SHIELD really just fly the Heli-Carrier over the center of London so visibly?

A little hard to spy on someone when everyone knows where your at.

  I thought the plot seemed rather jumbled. Jumping from gassed to not gassed, entering and then re-entering(?) the manor. The page order mix-up explains things.

  I'm still confused. Should this issue be dropped from the Order if they re-printed it correctly in #18? And what happened to the other story pages (like the ones in the pub)? Maybe the correct order is read #18 first and then read all the pages in #17 that aren't in #18? Their so-called fix didn't seem to fix everything.  

  ViolentPhlegm Says:

  So looking at the context, the 3 pages that aren't re-printed in #18 (the 2 pages with Fury and the page with the pub scene) are all that belong to the "real" #17. The correction notice in #19 seems a bit dishonest because it appears that #18 was just what they were originally going to publish as #18 anyway and they just ignored the missing pages from #17. I'm guessing this was fixed in the Captain Britain: Birth of a Legend" TPB though.
