Because i was thinking about picking some of the issues up, when i came across a cool cover of Meggan, but i wasn't too sure. I'm also a big fan of Kitty and Nightcrawler.
It varies. The TPBs are divided up into about 6 issue blocks called Excalibur Classic. The first is really rather amazing. Really fun stories, amazing Alan Davis art and a good set of characters. The second one is also good, apart from a few issues where Davis isn't on art, and as the TPBs go on, there is less of that. The Davis issues are really the best, which leads me to the point that there are other TPBs collecting later issues that are called Marvel Visionaries: Excalibur by Alan Davis or something to that effect, and those are the issues that are really memorable. However, in order to understand the stories in those books, you might want to check out a few of the earlier ones. When it comes to the Cross-Time Caper (which takes up more than one trade), it all gets a little complicated but remains a lot of fun, although continuity-heavy (there are plot strands that start in issue #1 but don't get resolved until issue #50, pretty much). I'd recommend all of them, but especially the Davis issues. Best to start at the beginning though.
- It was the X-Factor of it's day, a small group of X-related characters that had their own storyline mostly independent of the crossovers
- The quality of the title varied a lot over the 125 issues, but overall it was one of the better titles during its run
