FINAL PART (TWELVE) OF CAPTAIN BRITAIN COVER, SPLASH PAGE & IMAGE GALLERY...
It had started with plenty of promise, but waning interest on the
part of readers signed the death warrant for CAPTAIN BRITAIN's
weekly MARVEL U.K. mag, which ceased publication with issue #39.
The good Captain continued on in the pages of SUPER SPIDER-MAN,
presumably because the pages had already been drawn and paid for, but
I suspect the strip wasn't too popular and it quietly disappeared after
only 23 episodes, the last six being a two issue Spidey & Cap tale
from MARVEL TEAM-UP, split into weekly instalments.
And so we come to the end of another slice of the '70s. Don't
despair 'though, as we still have The SUPER-HEROES cover
& image gallery to enjoy, so tune into that, nostalgia fans, when
the next part pops up in a post - coming your way soon!
And just to round things off, below is the first issue of the com-
bined title. This is the very comic that I gave to a friend back in the
late '70s or very early '80s, and which I re-acquired from him around
a year and a half ago, over 30 years after parting with it. (Gets you
right there, doesn't it?)
