Captain Britain Secret Wars Trading Cards

Found these little gems on the Comic Art Fans site of our very own Captain drawn by Marco Santucci. He's listed them as 'Marvel Legendary Cards - Secret Wars Volume 2 (by Upperdeck)



With a little bit of research I came across this box art for the set by Upperdeck on their own website featuring Captain Britain.

Captain Britain Spotted in Ultimate end #5

Yet again we enter a Marvel world where Captain Britain is an after thought, and only just about makes it as a cameo in a panel, or two. In Ultimate End #5 the eagle-eyed of us can see the good Captain in the background removing webbing from Hawkeye... very heroic... and it looks like someone's stolen his boots... Who stole his boots?

Find out here in this new ongoing tale of sword, sorcery and one man’s struggle to not lose his soul.








Betsy Braddock Vs Betsy Braddock - Art Vs Cosplay

Yesterday I posted a nice piece of art by Nick Law of Betsy Braddock. I kept looking at it thinking there's something familiar about it, which prompted a search of any Betsy material I'd posted so far.

In 2012 I posted photo's of a great Cosplay by the lovely 'Gillykins' posing as Betsy Braddock in pink. This is obviously the inspiration for Nick Laws piece of art. I've put the two photo's side by side to show the similarities between the two. Every artist has a muse...


Both are very good, and both are forms of art, but which is the better? the original cosplay, or the copied, enhanced, digital art?

Betsy Braddock by Nick Law

Here's a great piece of art by Nick Law (NickLaw-Artes) featuring our Betsy, posted in his DeviantArt gallery. He's titled it 'Psylocke', then goes on to say 'This is Psylocke I love. No, I do not like the Ninja version.'.. I hear you brother, and totally agree with you.

As far as I'm concerned anything pre-ninja isn't Psylocke, just Betsy Braddock. The whole Psylocke body-swap thing happened, then she became Psylocke.

Anyway here's the art...
