Your Happenstance page for today:

From Excalibur #15, "Technet: Impossible Missions!" Written by Chris Claremont, pencils by Alan Davis, inks by Paul Neary. Not even midway through the Cross-Time Caper (which was not really a caper, they were lost!) and most of this issue goes to Gatecrasher, her Technet, and Captain Britain's crazy and super-powerful brother Jamie. Long before Exiles or even Sliders, Excalibur keeps going from one bizarre themed alternate world to another, with a brief stopover on their home earth that they accidentally leave and get lost again. Oops.

The Caper had it's moments, but was hindered by issues not pencilled by Davis, and went too long anyway. Davis would return to Excalibur years later as writer and artist, and those issues were even better.
