Ironically, since I insisted on drawing my first
cover for Marvel at print size, budget cuts at
Marvel UK resulted in the last five covers for
the Captain Britain monthly being drawn and
coloured at A4 (to suit a new small screened
scanner) this meant the art had to be enlarged
for publication. I also discovered with issue 11
that the new scanning process could 'see-
through' the gouache I used to obscure the
figure in the doorway and it could not register
any gradation in the purple tone I used to
model the house.
