Marvel UK: From 1979 and 1980, years when the good Captain’s solo career was in a bit of a slump, these extra-thick Summer Specials were released collecting some of his greatest hits. 1979’s Captain Britain Summer Special re-presented from Marvel Team-Up his first US appearance, a two-parter with Spider-Man, and some of the Black Knight serial from Hulk Weekly, in which the Captain co-starred, rather beautifully illustrated by John Stokes. 1980’s Summer Special should more properly have been called ‘Captain Britain and the Black Knight’, as in addition to CB strips it features a Black Knight/Dr. Strange team-up and a 1950s BK tale from Joe Maneely. We have the 1979 Special in two grades, VF £15 and FN £12 and the 1980 Special is GD £8.
