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 weekly 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. Sadly, it didn't help, as the mag only lasted for another 16 issues - which we'll start taking a look at in the very next post in this series. Don't forget to be here or you'll miss all the fun!
