Captain Britain Vs Sebastian Shaw by Chris Samnee

I found this great sketch by Chris Samnee (Daredevil) from 2009 on the Comic Art Fans site of the good Captain fighting Sebastian Shaw. Nice!

The owner of this piece had this to say...
'Chris Samnee drew this classic matchup for my brother at the 2009 Planet Comicon.'

Apologies for my absence, and neglect of this Blog of late, I've had a busy life of late, but never fear I have returned and will once again begin to post on a regular basis.

This year sees the 40th anniversary of Captain Britain's appearance, and there's some exciting things happening to mark this occasion, with one such project I'm involved in. I can't say too much just yet, but all will be revealed in October.

In the meantime, here's a great piece of art by Peter Nguyen of our dear Betsy, in various guises...

Defenders UK #3 is Out Now!

The long awaited issue #3 of Defenders UK is now available to read, for FREE, on the Avengers UK Facebook page.

I've just finished reading it myself, and loved it. There are so many references, nods of appreciation you could say, to the British side of sci-fi, and Brit' heroes, lovingly crafted by Izzy World. This is his baby, and like a growing infant, it is being nurtured, and loved like only a parent would love it's own child. You have to check out the inclusion of characters from old British children's TV programmes.

This has been created not for money, but for love, love of a genre we all love. Check it out, it's worth a read. If you've not read the first two issue, check them out on the Avengers UK site, before reading this issue...

The following alternate covers were drawn by myself, and the talented Alan Green.
