Moving to a U.S. format

With the original headliner of Marvel U.K. now firmly ensconsed in an American title, Marvel U.K. had a lull for a little while, and outside of Doctor Who Magazine I don't believe they premiered anything new of note for a couple of years. Then in 1988 they made a move to try again with local talent; this time they produced new titles in the American format - a single story, U.S. sized colour comic, as opposed to an anthology, U.K. sized black-and-white comic. Four such creations were put forward: Dragons' Claws and Death's Head (finally getting his own book after two years of guesting elsewhere), the creator-owned Sleeze Brothers in 1989, and Knights of Pendragon (arguably the closest they had thus far come to a mainstream Marvel Universe title in this format) in 1990.
