Writer Michael Higgins
Penciler Erik Larsen (misspelled as “Larson”)
Inker Terry Austin
Letterer Tim Harkins
Colorist Tom Vincent
Cover Dated Late December 1989
Cover by Paul Smith! I imagine they mean, both covers.
The inside credit page has this as the write up –
Sure, she’s seen them before, but never in her darkest nightmares did she expect to encounter them face to face — or to become part of the family!
Face it! For Meggan things have just gone from mad to worse.
Each part of the Excalibur chapters, follows one main team member.
Meggan wakes up in a parody of the Munsters home. I was never much of the Adams Family, but I’ve never seen an episode of the Munsters. I know of the show, but I never been tempted by it.
The Munsters are attacking Meggan. Meanwhile, Shadowcat messing with the mechanics of the world, that is imprisoning the team.
Captain Britain is being attacked by the characters of the Wizard of Oz.
There is a giant explosion and Meggan seems free of her section, she punches a small door open.
The Loony Toons parody characters know that something is wrong, and are instructed to deal with whoever is messing up the plan.
Not a bad use of eight pages, Three sets of two page spreads (like the one above) and the first and last page are proper single page sequential art.
I imagine we will do issue 35 next year, unless we get a good reason to do it, sooner.
Other stories are –
Black Panther – Panther’s Quest – Part 22 of 25
Coldblood – Rise and Shine – Part 9 of 10
Captain America – Past and Present Sins – Single Story
Such an interesting concept for a comic series, which I’m all for. I especially like the idea of these long stories coming to an end and the possibility of what is yet to come.
