I am having a bit of a nostalgia trip this weekend. I am considering an article on the big Marvel UK explosion of the early to mid 1990s before they were sold to Panini.
It was a time of some really great designs (Death's Head 2 for example) and some little remembered titles (Plasmer anyone?).
Anyway that article is coming soon but what did tickle me was this comparison of titles.
I bought both at the time and it didn't register until today.
Captain Britain issue 4 (1976).
Written by that grumpy so and so Chris Claremont with art by the hugely underrated Herb Trimpe.
Because here is the cover to Gene Dogs issue 3 (1993).
Written by John Freeman with cover art by Stephen Baskerville and Dave Taylor.
