Captain Britain and MI-13 Vol 1 1

Captain Britain and MI-13 Vol 1 was an American series published by Marvel Comics between July 2008 and September 2009 (a total of 15 issues, plus one softcover Annual) starring Britain's own Captain Britain and a number of other British or British based Marvel characters including Meggan, Union Jack and the Black Knight, all working for a top secret British Government department tasked wwith dealing with superhuman threats. It was written by Paul Cornell, a self confessed fan of the by then defunct Marvel UK line (for which he had earlier written stories for Doctor Who Magazine), who in the course of the series (and in particular the last issue) took the opportunity to bring back several former Marvel UK characters including Dark Angel, Digitek, Motormouth, Killpower and Death's Head. The title, drawn by Leonard Kirk, sold strongly in the UK but was ultimately cancelled due to low sales in the USA.
