Jan 07, Antonio rated it it was amazing. Arthur then attempted to drown the baby among the other May Babies to keep him from becoming a threat to any legitimate heir; but unknown to Arthur, the baby survived.

In addition, I think it was a simpler time. At the time the logistics of transatlantic collaborations were difficult, and the series was created using the full script method in part because it was the easiest way for Barr and Bolland to work together while an ocean separated them.

The adaptation of Le Morte d’Arthur to science camflot conventions is smooth and clever, and even the “improvements” thereto, in the form of the characters’ “do-overs”, so to speak, make fine work of the original material.


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. It seemed like a lazy way to retell the most famous episode of arthuriana.
