Captain Britain by Alan Davis and Alan Moore

Captain Britain by Alan Davis and Alan Moore


Alan Davis and Paul Cornell talk about writing and in Alan’s case, also drawing Captain Britain, a character whose appearance in comics in the early 1980s by Alans Davis and Moore gave the strip a lasting appeal that endures to the current day. Paul Cornell talks about his recent revamp of the character in the new comic Captain Britain and MI:13 which sees the Captain get a 21st Century make-over while encountering such nefarious characters as Count Dracula and Gordon Brown!
