Characters Appearing: Adam Crown, Albion, Francesca Grace Lexley, Union Jack (Joey Chapman)
Marvel Comics Presents #122 (Pendragons)
Issue(s): Marvel Comics Presents #122 (Knights of the Pendragon story only)
The Pendragons are out investigating crop circles.
They're then attacked by a Bane lord named Shadow Wing.
I kinda want his action figure.
The Pendragons fight Shadow Wing...
...and defeat him by breaking his staff, which turns back into wheat?!?
But the bad news is that Shadow Wing has a human identity running an agritech company.
And since he'll never appear again, that means he's still out there planting his bad seeds.
On the surface this does act like a Knights of Pendragon story, with a Bane enemy and a vaguely environmental theme. And it does a fair job of introducing the characters. It's not great, but it's been a while since the actual Knights of Pendragon was any good, anyway, so i'm not sure if the regular creative team could have done a better job of selling it.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: This takes place after the debut of the Alan Davis designed costumes (some time after Knights of Pendragon #8) but beyond that it should fit in any gap in their series.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
