Pete Wisdom heads up MI: 13, the British agency devoted to defending the realm from that OTHER realm. This bizarre mix leads to some incredibly inventive and hilariously inappropriate scenes that nonetheless work, such as when Pete & co. use a summoning circle to transport themselves to Faerie - inside an army helicopter.

I've enjoyed Cornell's Doctor Who episodes, so I'm ecstatic that his comics work is just as well-written. Over the course of the story, misfortunes develop that are inevitable without seeming overwrought, and his approach towards writing an established Marvel character like Wisdom is satisfying to first-time readers as well as the hardcore X-Men fanatics. (What he mumbled in his sleep fits well for the story as given, but for those readers in the know adds a very different shade.)

And the H.G. Wells tie-in was superbly fun.

Highly recommended!
