The tales of King Arthur are some of the oldest, most established stories in the entire genre of fantasy literature. “Camelot 3000” by Mike Barr and Brian Bolland brings the tradition to comics. Arthur awakes to England under siege by an alien invasion while the world’s leaders sit by and scheme over power. We talk about the comic’s controversial cojones, transgender characters, the perils of modernizing classics, and David Bowie.
