CBR Review: Captain Britain and MI:13 #11

I recently reviewed Captain Britain and MI:13 #11 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "I’m reminded of Grant Morrison’s JLA and Warren Ellis’s The Authority with this issue. Paul Cornell’s take on the MI:13 group has that same level of intelligence and professionalism come through its characters. They’re attacked by Dracula in an obviously planned manner, so they don’t make some hollow speeches, they don’t let rage get the better of them, they don’t pose awkwardly and swear vengeance: they stop, they assess the situation, and they begin to plan a response. Yes, yes, there will be lots of kicksplode later no doubt, but, before that, why not have these characters act like the adults they’re supposed to be?"
