Really, the superficially cynical maneuverings of these worldly aristos are potentially as compelling as those happening in the mysteriously remade Otherworld. Yet while I’ve enjoyed Marauders, its overall execution is flawed in ways quite different from Excalibur’s challenges. Indeed, it’s been the least consistent ongoing, both in terms of direction and quality. But throughout, we’ve certainly gotten a better-than-average series, and dear daddy Duggan shows he’s still got his finger on the pulse of the present. That doesn’t mean it’s not quite literally all over the map!
