    1. Qué década la de los 80. He aquí uno de esos clásicos que no envejece. Pura diversión en un cómic deliberadamente informal, un canto al desparpajo heróico que lo da todo en pos del entretenimiento. El culebrón artúrico es potenciado por sus autores y transmutado en un ejercicio de ciencia ficción escapista. Hasta la pésima edición trae recuerdos de cuando leer tebeos era un puro disfrute alejado de intelectualismos y requiebros. Y qué dibujos de Bolland. A veces, una inmersión en e [...]

    2. No puedo sentirme más feliz de que esta obra haya llegado a mi vida.A pesar de ser una historia futurista y que la Ciencia Ficción no sea mi género, el leer una obra acerca del Rey Arturo en un cómic de 300 páginas, con ilustraciones bellísimas y con un tema que me encanta -y que jamás esperé- como la reencarnación, ha hecho que definitivamente este sea uno de mis libros favoritos del 2017. Además, no solo es acción con mezcla de fantasía y la tecnología del año 3000, sino que logr [...]

    3. When I first read Camelot 3000, the first direct-market comic published by DC, it was in the individual issues, and as back issues that I had picked up somewhere. Since then, I've read almost every Outsiders comic written by Camelot 3000 writer Mike W. Barr, and in retrospect, Batman and the Outsiders was more than a bit clumsy, and often heavy-handed in its politics. So when I re-read Camelot 3000, I was expecting a frankly substandard effort from Barr, despite the always-gorgeous art from Bria [...]

    4. Adaptación de las leyendas artúricas en el futuro, con invasión alienígena incluida en su momento esta maxi-serie (que al ser independiente cumple como novela gráfica) fue innovadora por varias razones, fue de los primeros cómics que se crearon para su venta exclusiva en tiendas especializadas, por lo que al no venderse en kioskos no estuvo sujeta al comic code estadounidense, lo que permitió que los autores se tomaran algunas libertades.Como no puede ser de otra manera se repiten todos l [...]

    5. You know what's really great about late 80s DC? It's subtle subversity. I mean, Sir Tristan being reicarned as a woman, a man trapped in a woman's body, but still loving Isolade who is also reincarnated as a woman? Now, reading something like that would be cheesy or cliched, but back then, it's pretty groundbreaking. It's really to bad the rest of the GN couldn't take it's queue from that and evolve into a more compelling story.

    6. Obra maestra. Clásico imprescindible. En el año 3000 una ocasión alienigena amenaza la Tierra. Tal y como se predijo, Arturo vuelve para ayudar a Inglaterra en su mayor necesidad, y muchos más de los personajes de su leyenda vienen con él, para bien y para mal. Es un clásico irrepetible. Se debe leer.

    7. Tras leer sobre las leyendas artúricas junto a Steinbeck, y a falta de profundizar en hechos como la búsqueda del Grial, caballeros como Galahad, Tristan, Mordred o la muerte de Arturo de mano de la obra de Sir Thomas Malory, me decidí a lanzarme con esta particular versión de los mitos.Situados en el año 3000, este cómic nos traslada al regreso del rey Arturo ya que la profecía lo dice: cuando Inglaterra (y el mundo) más lo necesite, Arturo volverá. Así, el rey vuelve en plena invasi [...]

    8. I first read this when I was 14, and it completely blew my mind. This was in the early 90s, and I'd never before encountered a comicbook that explored the themes that this one did. This was probably the collection that cemented my admiration for the art form, for its ability to convey messages that art and text on their own just couldn't quite manage. I've always looked back on this series with an extreme, 5-star fondness.Recently, my best friend expressed an interest in reading more comics, and [...]

    9. La Saga Arturiana nel futuroBarr ha preso elementi tipici della saga arturiana (l’amore di Artù per Ginevra, l’amore di Ginevra per Lancillotto con il conseguente successivo tradimento, Morgana sorellastra e nemica di Artù, giusto per citare quelli più noti, ma si potrebbe andare avanti a lungo) e li ha trasposti nell’anno 3000, in una Terra invasa e sottomessa da alieni; una Terra, insomma, che ricalca la terra originaria di Artù che la unificò contro i barbari e così fa l’Artù d [...]

    10. This is the series that sparked my interest in all things Arthurian way back in the early 80s. In this story Artur awakes to a world that needs him. He is reunited with Merlin, six of his knights, Guinevere and a young man who who awakens him Tom. Together they fight Morgan La Fey and her minions for the entire planet. The story holds up well and is actually very modern in its treatment of women. Guinevere in her modern form is the commander of Earth defenses and a warrior in her own right. Tris [...]

    11. Il perché di questo libro: Camelot 3000 è una pietra miliare nella storia del fumetto moderno. La prima maxi serie ad essere distribuita esclusivamente nel canale delle librerie, e per di più il primo fumetto ad utilizzare la dicitura 'for mature readers'. L'opera è una rivisitazione del mito arturiano, uno dei più affascinanti e longevi del panorama anglosassone.Scelta difficile, affrontata con passione da Mike W. Barr, che ambienta la sua storia nell'anno 3000, in un contesto di 'space-op [...]

    12. Bueno, después de haber leído este comic es muy probable que si alguien me pregunta cual es mi dibujante favorito yo le diga "Brian Bolland". La mayoría de las estrellitas son para él, porque el guión, no siendo malo en absoluto, en algunos tramos se me hizo "a poco" comparado con los lápices de este zarpado dibujante. Sabiendo lo mínimo de las leyendas del Rey Arturo se puede disfrutar más que bien.Recomendado para todo aquel que quiera leer algo divertido y tremendamente dibujado.

    13. I've always been a sucker for a King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table book.And I guess they managed to sucker me into this one as well :-)No regrets as it's a nice futuristic version of a familiar story with a couple of added twists to freshen it up. And with nice artwork by a young(-er) Brian Bolland it's visually pleasing to look at.

    14. I think if it was 1982 and I was a hormonal 12 year old and had just watched John Boorman's Excalibur and was really getting into the Arthurian legend stuff, but also liked futuristic space adventure and illustrations of scantily clad warrior-women, then this probably would have received 4 stars. There was nothing really bad about this - just not my cup of tea at this point in my life in 2017. Brian Bolland is a really great artist but he doesn't do anything approaching spectacular until the las [...]

    15. I wasn't super impressed with this one.It was given to me by my dad, who is an avid collector of old comics of his era. I've read other classic comics from the 60's, the tone and social norms are always a bit startling; sexism running the most rampant in this series.In addition, I think it was a simpler time. Readers didn't expect a lot in plot. Furthermore, when you read one issue a week, I'm sure the plot holes are not nearly as glaring.I think I've been spoiled with Sandman, Hellboy, and Saga [...]

    16. Nel futuro, un'invasione aliena in inghilterra provoca il ritorno di Re Artù e dei suoi cavalieri che ripercorrono la storia narrata da Mallory, con alcune significative variazioni finali.Agli ottimi disegni non fanno contraltare dei testi particolarmente significativi.All'epoca della prima edizione fu osannata, ma onestamente, per me non era granché neanche all'epoca ed è invecchiata male come storia (ma non come disegni)

    17. This book/comic series was recommended to me by a friend for a reading challenge. It is utterly ridiculous, full of 80's "this is what the future will be like" references, and yet somehow still amusing. At the time it was considered groundbreaking. One of Arthur's nights is reborn as a woman, yet still loves the woman of his past life (who was also reincarnated). While reading it, I was curious to know what the modern audience would think about that plotline. I'd actually be interested in seeing [...]

    18. I have so much to say about this comic, but first of all: I am not an expert on comics, yes I like to read marvel comics but by no means I am an expert of DC or in general comicbooks. I am an arthurian fan so I am going to review this comic from an arthurian point of view.(view spoiler)[First of all I have to say that I liked the drawings. It may seem strange, because I usually go for more 'modern' comic drawings but I like how every character was well characterized by their look (I am definitel [...]

    19. This book is a collection of the first comic book maxi-series, as claimed in the introduction by Don and Maggie Thompson. The series was written by Mike W. Barr who is probably best known for his writing on various Batman titles such as Batman and the Outsiders, the Year Two story in Detective Comics and the Son of the Demon graphic novel. The art was by British artist Brian Bolland who is more often associated, these days, with fabulous cover art but also worked on early Judge Dredd stories for [...]

    20. A colleague has been lending me graphic novels following a conversation we once had about how much I loved 'The Complete MausMaus' by Art Spiegelman. Some of the loans have been good reads, and some have been entirely outlandish. Tank Girl was all about a military girl who blows up and kills anyone she passes and has a kangaroo as a boyfriend. So crazy! Even the premise put me off that one, let alone the content.Yet, none of them sounded as crazy as 'Camelot 3000': The revival of legendary King [...]

    21. I first read this comic series when I was 12 years old. I'd read anything back then published by Marvel or D.C. comics and I was at that impressionable age where the idea of muscular knights from Camelot being reborn in the year 3000 sounded like the coolest thing ever. King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table were either reborn or resurrected so they could fight aliens invading planet Earth, little realizing they were actually up against Arthur’s half-sister Morgan LeFay. Like other amb [...]

    22. Synopsis: "In the year 3000, an armada of destructive aliens has unleashed an all-out assault on Earth and is poised to conquer the planet. But when a young boy stumbles upon the crypt of King Arthur, the legendary monarch and the Knights of the Round Table are magically reincarnated. Together once again, King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, Merlin, and the rest of the classic knights take on the invading extraterrestrials and their wicked leader, Morgan Le Fay, the half-sister of Arthur. A mythical tale [...]

    23. I've never read a graphic novel. I read a few comic books in college, but those were random story lines I just picked up. I never dedicated myself to following a series. This graphic novel is set in the future where King Arthur, Merlin, and the Knights of the Round Table are reincarnated to save planet Earth from alien invaders manipulated by the reincarnated forms of Morgan LeFay and Mordred. I liked it. There were some interesting parts where science-fiction got to meet fantasy and all rules c [...]

    24. 4.5. It's the year 3000, aliens are pummeling the Earth and the UK in particular—so in Britain's darkest hour, who's destined to return? Author Mike Barr knows his Arthurian material, and the concept of Arthur's knights (unlike the king himself) being reincarnated allows for a greater diversity (and Galahad as a samurai is just pitch-perfect). A big part of the plot is that both Tristan and Isolde have been reborn as women, which Tristan doesn't like at all (Isolde's cool with it), which was m [...]

    25. Mmmm.cious nostalgia. When I read this as a kid - most of it whilst sitting up in the corner of Tommy Woodroof's room under his display of Batmen - this was just awesome, what with its dystopian views of the future, references to various Arthurian legends, and clean lines on the Bolland representations of the sexy and the violent. Now, there are some definite problems to be found - some decidedly unenlightened views from Mr. Barr on not only African politics and Chinese culture, but also on homo [...]

    26. Storywise, this was so-so. Aliens invading earth, knights of olde must defend earth. It takes place in the future, so there are some fish-out-of-water moments, and things blow up real good. Artwise, however, this is good stuff. When Brian Bolland draws a character, an expression, or a physical object of any kind, you know exactly what you are looking at. I'm not sure what Bolland has done with his time during this career of his. Other than this title, all I've really seen him do is about one mon [...]

    27. When this first came out in the mid-80s, I wasn't that impressed with it. I re-read it with very low expectations, and was pleasantly surprised. Sure, it's the kind of cheesy story you expect from a sci-fi King Arthur story issued by DC, but it was good fun. It was extremely dated: Bolland was definitely drawing on 80s culture for costume inspiration. However, what I hadn't realized is that at the time it was definitely edgy, although it's tame by modern standards, with its themes of transgender [...]

    28. This books was recommended to me because i was working in an Kings Arthur themed draw. I find interesting the bold choices the writer took, and the art in good, but the story is not good. I don´t like the characters and the exposure. You can see that is just a series of events the author wanted to happen and the characters and circunstances had to addapt to meet them. For me thats lousy storytelling and could not enjoy any part of it. The only interesting part is the conflict of Tristan´s rein [...]

    29. King Arthur comes back from the dead to defeat aliens invading earth. Now if that premise alone doesn't reek of awesomness, then you probably have no business reading this graphic novel. I just re-read this over the weekend, & it's every bit as fun as I remembered. You have to take into account when this comic was made, don't expect a modern, Ultimate-Bendis comic with hip edgy art. 300 pages of Brian Bolland pencils is better than most current artists in my opinion, but the story does read [...]
