*Marvel UK: From 1976, Marvel UK’s first attempt to generate a British-based super-hero, placed into the hands of Chris Claremont and Herb Trimpe, who… might have possibly met an English person. Once. Be that as it may, CB’s become a mainstay of the mainstream Marvel Universe, and this new selection of the first nine weekly issues features not only his debut and origin in issue #1 (duh), but also issues #8 & #9, the first and second appearances of his psychic psister, Betsy, who – years later and after many, many changes – turned Japanese and became the X-Men’s scantily-clad ninja mind-warrior Psylocke. As you do. This new copy of #8 (pictured) is a respectable VG at £40. For prices and grades on the others consult our catalogue.
