New Charlotte Corday strips by Keith Page published

Charlotte Corday - The Fulcanelli Conundrum

Two more Charlotte Corday stories by Dan Dare and Thunderbirds artist Keith Page are now available to read for free in full on the digital comics platform Tapas.io, joining a number of other stories starring the time-hopping, dimension jumping adventurer.

Joining an early story, “Witchcraft Street“, also published on the official Charlotte Corday web site, stories include “Wonderbirds at Your Service“, and “Gothick“, bringing together many previous guest stars in past Corday adventures, pitted against the real creator of the monster that later forms the focus of Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein

Also available to read now is  “The Fulcanelli Conundrum“, a story that is in part a sequel to “Witchcraft Street” for lead character Charlotte Corday – but at the same time a prequel for a major character she encounters in pre-war Paris.

Coming soon is “Shockwave Riders“, another more science fiction adventure which sees Charlotte battling mysterious UFOs – from Venus!

Some adventures are also being published to the Charlotte Corday Facebook Page, where Keith occasionally drops in and teases followers with new work.

Inspired by the great British comics artists of the past such as Frank Hampson, Don Lawrence and Joe Colquhoun, Keith Page has worked full-time in comics and illustration for over 20 years. Subjects have ranged from television-related material such as Thunderbirds, science fiction, and his current war stories of all periods for Commando.

Along with many Charlotte Corday-related projects, recent works include The Casebook of Bryant May: The Soho Devil written by Christopher Fowler and strips written by screen writer Stephen Walsh.

It’s been a pleasure to work with Keith on some of these stories as letterer and host of some of his tales. I hope you enjoy them!
