British Comic Characters Profiled | Charley’s War

Charley's War Omnibus Cover

 

Over the last few years Moose Harris and I have maintained the semi-official Charley’s War web site, originally established by Neil Emery, which helped generate enough renewed interest in the World War One comic strip by Pat Mills and Joe Colquhoun to persuade Titan Books to reprint it.

In 2015, hosting problems with the site meant I had to reluctantly make the decision to import its postings and features to downthetubes to ensure its survival.

I hope you’ll find the pages now gathered here about Charley’s War and other war comics of interest.
