Alas, poor Brit, it seems we hardly knew ye.

Well, actually, in the end, I guess we do.

This cornerstone character in fan-favourite writer Robert Kirkman’s corner of the Image Comics universe — alongside Invincible, the Astounding Wolf-Man and Tech Jacket — managed to survive just one measly year as star of his own book, in spite some pretty interesting stories filled with snappy dialogue by scribe Bruce Brown and accompanied by very nice art from Nate Bellegarde and Andy Kuhn.

Brit does not, however, go quietly.

This nigh-indestructible hero returns from the dead — ho hum — to battle aliens, monsters, other heroes, family members and, oh yeah, himself, travelling to New York City, the South Pacific, the moon and a parallel Earth all before kicking back, settling in on the couch and finally revealing the secret of how he got his powers.

All in all, it’s a pretty fine send-off. Though hopefully not the last we’ve seen from Brit.
