MARVEL UK, YES?

Quick shout out for the latest issue of Eaglemoss’ excellent Marvel Fact-Files, a growing A-Z of every Marvel character, from the renowned to the obscure. To which, as it happens, I’m a regular contributor. The current issue (#97) is dedicated wholly to Marvel UK characters and strips from company’s rich history of publishing originated material, including The Hulk, Death’s Head, Dragon’s Claws, Captain Britain (the Parkhouse/Stokes era when he was teamed with the Black Knight) and Sleeze Brothers. I’ve duly contributed to the two I co-created (Death’s Head & Dragon’s Claws) as well as turning my beady eye on the fabulous Black Knight strip that co-starred Captain Britain (though before my time, I was later assistant editor on Captain Britain Monthly, and diligently read all that had come before). Some newsagents do stock Marvel Fact-Files, but it’s more a subscription thing or you can order direct from Forbidden Planet. Grab a copy while you can – it’s sure to be a collector’s item.

    Do you know who did the cover, Simon?

    Hi Simon,
    Did you do an earlier Death’s Head piece for this publication? If so can you tell me the number of the issue?
    Thanks!
    Jamie
