Lists with This Book. Feb 04, Santiago L. Sep 21, Betty BoomBa rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a reread. I’ve had this on my shelf for years, but with all the comics appearing on my feed I thought it about time I have a look again. Loved the idea of Camelot and Author, and with Sir Tristan reincarnated as a woman, it eslaol even more.
Probably one of the reasons I bought it way back when. May 21, Daniel A. When I first read Camelotthe first direct-market comic published by DC, it was in the individual issues, and as back issues that I had picked up somewhere. Barrand in retrospect, Batman espaop the Outsiders was more than a bit clumsy, and often heavy-handed in its politics. So when I re- read CamelotI was expecting a frankly substandard effort from Barr, despite the always-gorgeous art from Bria When I first read Camelotthe first direct-market comic published by DC, it was in the individual issues, and as back issues that I had picked up somewhere.
So when I re- read CamelotI was expecting a frankly substandard effort from Barr, despite the always-gorgeous art from Brian Bolland and for perhaps the apotheosis of his art, go look for Batman: Trust me; it’s one of the best comics stories ever published. How wrong I was. 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 And clearly DC Comics agreed, as it agreed not only to better-quality paper for the publication of the original maxi-series, but also to massive production delays brought on by Bolland’s perfectionistic approach to the art.
In a nutshell, Camelot tells the story of the reappearance of King Arthur and ezpaol Knights of the Round Table in the far future in response to a world-shaking threat to planet Earth in general and England in particular.
And as far as swashbuckling sci-fi action-adventure goes, Camelot is really quite good. Add to that the sly trope concerning the consequences of abandoning a space program presented early on, and Camelot is even better.
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.
In general, Camelot not only succeeds, but stands the test of time. Barr was never better than when he published Camelot —and the behind-the-scenes production information at the back of my volume is enlightening—and Bolland’s art would only get better over time, and he would eventually shine strongly as part of the burgeoning British Invasion of comics talent of that era. My re-reading of Camelot was a pleasant surprise, and I would recommend it to comics fans of a certain—or any—age.
Nov 12, Matt Piechocinski rated it it was ok. You know what’s really great about late 80s DC? I mean, Sir Tristan being reicarned as a woman, a man trapped in a woman’s body, but still loving Isolade who is also reincarnated as a woman?
Now, reading something like that would be cheesy or cliched, but back then, it’s pretty groundbreaking. 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.
Jan 07, Antonio rated it it was amazing. I first read this when I was 14, and it completely blew my mind. This was in the early 90s, and I’d never before encountered a comicbook that explored the themes that this one did.
This was probably the collection that cemented my admiration for the art form, for its ability to convey messages that esoaol and text on their own just couldn’t quite manage.
I’ve always looked back on this series with an extreme, 5-star fondness. Recently, my best friend expressed an camelof in reading more comics, and I first read this when I was 14, and it completely blew my mind.
Camelot by Mike W. Barr
Recently, my best friend expressed esoaol 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.
I admit with a little guilt that I then went in for a quick trip down Memory Lane. Bluntly, the collection hasn’t aged well. Edpaol story is quite obviously dated, but if you keep in mind that it was written in the 80s, you can easily see how it refused to conform to stereotypes and it’s still really nice to see that Sir Gawain didn’t die first, I’m just saying.
The pacing doesn’t work for me, but I think I just read at a less leisurely clip nowadays. The art still holds up, though. Again, if epsaol remember the limitations of the time, it’s easier to admire.
So, basically, I gave this book 4 stars not on its own merits, but due to its significance in mostly my personal history. Okay, that’s a pretty narrow segment of the reading populace, but I’m a part of it and know, I believe, whereof I recommend. Mar 31, Marcello Tarot rated it really liked it Shelves: Nov 26, Carol Gibson rated it it was amazing Shelves: This edpaol the cakelot that sparked my interest in all things Arthurian way back in the early 80s.
In this story Artur awakes to a world that needs him. He is reunited with Merlin, six of his knights, Guinevere and a young man who who awakens him Cameloh. Together they fight Morgan La Fey and her minions for the entire planet. The story holds up well and is actually very modern in its treatment of women.
Guinevere in her modern form is the commander of Earth defenses and a warrior in her own right. Tris This is the series that sparked my interest in all 0300 Arthurian way back in the early 80s. Tristan is reincarnated as woman and has to learn to live as woman and deal with her love of Espal who has also been reincarnated.
Both of these themes were ahead of their time when this was first published. The story itself is well told and the art is beautiful. Czmelot am so glad I that I reread this.
I was just a novice the first time not knowing much of the legend and I was still drawn into the story. Now some thirty years later and knowing a lot more of the mythos I see the richness of it weaved into the story. Scelta difficile, caemlot con passione da Mike W. Le tavole di Brian Bolland sono di elevatissimo livello e si sposano perfettamente con lo stile della narrazione. Consigliato agli amanti del fumetto. Recomendado para todo aquel que quiera leer algo divertido y tremendamente dibujado.
And I guess they managed to sucker me into this one as well: And with nice artwork by a young -er Brian Bolland it’s visually pleasing to look at. Mar 17, Arthurian Tapestry rated it liked it.
A story on the return of Arthur, as hinted in my readings in Malory. Of course, 300 comic book was bit difficult to caamelot, as I lived on a tropical island where only mainstream superhero comics made it to the newsstands.
Eventually, I was able to procure a few back issues, one with a tantalizing picture of a scantily clad and futuristic Morgan le Fay that occupied many of teenage fantasies for years to come. Now, that I have the opportunity to have both the kindle and paperback compilation of this limited mini series, I have been able to read the story finally in its entirety and must confess some level of disappointment.
Ultimately, this is not the return of Arthur I was waiting for. Arthur was more ca,elot a”Thor” like character who did not inspire me one bit in his battle against “evil” aliens. Still, the series did explore some topics that have now come to the fore in terms of gender; the “Tristan” part of the story was well ahead of its time. Tristan espaaol as a woman, which back then was like opening a whole can of worms.
Perhaps, not so much today, but this is perhaps why the series is studied in Arthurian college courses to this day. While Tristan’s gendered dilemma does serve to elevate the storyline, the dialogue is hopelessly embedded with period Americanisms that not only detracts from supposed British characters, but makes the whole of Arthur’s new Round Table fellowship quite bland despite the world diversity they are now made to represent—Lancelot retains his French aspect in exterior only; he might as well as be an American businessman and becomes the rinse and repeat of the storyline as found in traditional Arthurian sources.
The others are more like a multicultural nod with Galahad as a Samurai and the African Gawain. Percival is Hulkish mutation to give the Round Table the appearance of a superhero assemblage and sure why not? Arthur’s original Round Table did exactly that, uniting knights of various aspects and powers into one fellowship, albeit imperfect and tragic. Kay remains the mocker that he was with little exploration of what made him so endearing in the source materials.
Merlin is still the son of the devil and drawn with Tennyson gleam in his eye; a far-cry from T.
