CAPTAIN BRITAIN COVER, SPLASH PAGE & IMAGE GALLERY - PART SEVEN...
After 23 issues of CAPTAIN BRITAIN being printed mostly in colour, number 24 saw the by then MARVEL U.K. standard glossy cover and grey tones added to the comic, doubtless to cut costs in the face of a declining circulation. However, there were compensations in that JOHN BUSCEMA & TOM PALMER took over the art chores on the main strip, and the comic was given more pages (in line with other Marvel U.K. weeklies), allowing four titanic tales per ish.
It only lasted 16 issues however, before the title was absorbed by SUPER SPIDER-MAN, but for a glorious 39 weeks, the good Captain had a comic mag of his very own. So return with me now to 1977, and let's look again at the new direction in the career of Britain's own sensational superhero - and don't forget to come back for the next part! I'd hate for you to miss anything - and so would you!
