"Rejoice, my son, for thou hast chosen the Amulet of Right o'er the Sword of Might! Therefore, let there be beauty and strength--power and compassion--honour and humility, mirth and reverence--within you... Be one with thy brothers of the Round Table--with Arthur and Lancelot, Gawain and Galahad, with them all... Be thou what they were--a hero! Strive forever to maintain the rule of right--of law and justice--against those who live and rule by might."

Chris Claremont, "From the Holocaust--A Hero!" Captain Britain No. 2 (20 Oct. 1976)

Ex Occultus: A Matter of Britain (New/Recent & FREE!)

DriveThruComics.com is currently offering the following comic for a free download as a watermarked PDF. I am unfamiliar with the Ex Occultus series and, at this point, do not know if there have been any additional references to the legend.

Ex Occultus: A Matter of Britain

1875. Wakefield and Hollander are sent to investigate the ghostly goings-on in a cave near a small village, where they discover the exiled Lancelot du Lac, fabled knight of King Arthur’s Round Table. The intrepid occultists first find themselves in awe of the famed warrior, but soon discover the madness the knight has endured after centuries of isolation.
