For a comic that was DC’s first for mature readers, it felt very immature – let’s mix Arthurian legend with the future and an alien invasion and it’ll be cool. There was fun and witty banter, there was romance and there were modern struggles thrown in. I am an arthurian fan so I am going to review this comic from an arthurian point of view. Bolland was not comfortable with this and made his pencils very heavily detailed in order to leave the inker as little room for creative reinterpretation as possible.

DC decided to run it as a maxi-series. This is the series that sparked my interest in all things Arthurian way back in the early 80s.

Camelot 3000 #1 – 12 (1982-1985)

The most original treatment in the work of any of the Arthurian characters is that of the figure of Sir Tristanwho is unexpectedly reincarnated in a woman’s form. 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 the alien invasion – and the real enemy behind it.

This forces camelof to reexamine his previous conceptions of gender roles and possibly his own sexuality. Recomendado para todo aquel que quiera leer algo divertido y tremendamente dibujado.

Their enduring 30000 for one another eventually triumphs, and the two become lovers. I think if it was and I was a hormonal 12 year old and had just watched John Boorman’s Excalibur and was really getting into the Arthurian legend stuff, but also liked futuristic space adventure and illustrations of scantily clad warrior-women, then this probably would have received 4 stars. There was nothing really bad about this – just not my cup of tea at this point in my life in Brian Bolland is a really great artist but he doesn’t do anything approaching spectacular until the last couple of issues when there are a few nice splash pages and he generally takes the art up a notch.

My re-reading of Camelot was a pleasant surprise, and I would recommend it to comics fans of a certain—or any—age.

Kay remains the mocker that he was with little exploration of what made him so endearing in the source materials. It was so unlike anything that I would normally enjoy. In the yearthe Earth is facing a threat from an alien invasion of unknown origins.

Guinevere finds out that she’s pregnant, and when she tells Lancelot it may be Arthur’s, he expresses similar hope and promises to love the baby no matter what.

When left to his own universe, without resorting to cheap Reagan-era politics, Barr is an excellent writer, as evidenced by the cohesive whole of Camelot May 15, Mark rated it it was amazing. Perhaps, not so much today, but this is perhaps why the series is studied in Arthurian college courses to this day. And I guess they managed to sucker me into this one as well: Mar 17, Arthurian Tapestry rated it liked it.

But when a young boy stumbles upon the crypt of King Arthur, the legendary monarch and the Knights of the Round Table are magically reincarnated.

I’ve always looked back on this series with an extreme, 5-star fondness. Very cool reimagining of the Arthurian legend as the prophecy of Arthur’s return is fulfilled Flashbacks reveal that after her defeat in the Middle Ages, the spirit of Morgan traveled out into the solar system, eventually reconstituting herself on the planet where she enslaved the native population and led them in their invasion of Earth.

I’ll be rereading this, I’m sure, knowing the historical significance of the book as a forerunner of what s comics became. Recently, my best friend expressed an interest in reading more comics, and I thought I’d get this for him for his birthday the Deluxe edition, with a spoiler-tastic Mike Barr intro.

How wrong I was.

I didn’t rate it as a 5-star because Tristan annoyed me endlessly. Barr and penciled by Brian Bolland. The Journal of Popular Rspaol. While reading it, I was curious to know what the modern audience would think about that plotline. Want to Read saving….


Camelot 3000

I am so glad I that I reread this. This book is a collection of the first comic book maxi-series, as claimed in the introduction by Don and Maggie Thompson. Sorry, I do not want to make this review political, but good storytelling will always relate and bridge to the world we live in, no matter how far in time.

And with nice artwork by a young -er Brian Bolland it’s visually pleasing to look at.

In Decemberhe and artist Brian Bolland began Camelota 12 issue limited series that was one of DC Comics’ first direct market projects. The story holds up well and is actually very modern in epaol treatment of women. It’s really to bad the rest of the GN couldn’t take it’s queue from that and evolve into a more compelling story. The others are more like a multicultural nod with Galahad as a Samurai and the African Gawain.

It was published by DC Comics from to as one of its first direct market projects, and as its first maxi-series. The epilogue shows the fates of the remaining knights as Gawain returns to his wife and son, Tristan consummates his relationship with Isolde, and Tom Prentice leads a crew in rebuilding London.

Furthermore, when you read one issue a week, I’m sure the plot holes are not nearly as glaring. 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.

There’s also some sensitive portrayal of transgender and transsexual issues in the pages of Camelotand considering that Marvel, as late ashad exactly one openly gay character [ Alpha Flight ‘s Jean-Paul ” Northstar ” Beaubier]—and the less said about Marvel’s handling of that business the better—that’s to DC’s credit.
