Here is the cover to issue 20, pencilled I think by Paul Neary. Cap here seems to be facing down some strange, negative versions of Tolkien's Nazgul - and not a Hobbit in sight!

Captain Britain in Middle Earth?
Over at Pete Doree's fantastic Bronze Age Of Blogs there's been a discussion about how poor the original Captain Britain strip really was, regardless of nostalgia, rose-tinted glasses etc. It did make me think about Cap's appearances in the Black Knight strip in Dez Skinn's Hulk Comic. This was a great, atmospheric strip with an Arthurian slant and some wonderful artwork from John Stokes. I'll always remember the moody depiction of a solitary, amnesiac character, wandering the coast of Cornwall, only to be identified by The Black Knight as the long-lost Captain Britain.
