PART SIX OF CAPTAIN BRITAIN COVER, SPLASH PAGE & IMAGE GALLERY...
Four issues for the price of three this time around, chums, as we wrap
up the colour issues of CAPTAIN BRITAIN in this post. Next time, as
we continue the series, it'll be mainly black & white images (apart from the
covers) that your awestruck orbs will encounter. However, it's not all bad
news - JOHN BUSCEMA & TOM PALMER take up the artistic duties
on the good Captain, which can in no way be defined as a demotion.
So why was the comic transformed into a b&w publication after
only 23 issues? It seems obvious that the title wasn't selling as expected
and savings had to be made. Losing the colour content would've reduced
overheads considerably, so it's likely that's why the decision was made by
the head honchos at MARVEL. It didn't help, as the mag only lasted for
another 16 issues - which we'll start taking a look at in the next post
in this series. Don't forget to be here or you'll miss all the fun!
