Charley’s War “Micro Site” joins DownTheTubes

Charley's War


The Charley’s War web site formerly hosted as part the SevenPennyNightmare sites has a new home here on DownTheTubes.

I’d like to thank Moose Harris of SevenPennyNightmare for very kindly hosted the semi-official site dedicated to the World War One comic strip created by Pat Mills and Joe Colquhoun for Battle, but hosting issues mean we’re unsure how long the Charley’s War site, originally founded by Neil Emery, will remain “live” as a dedicated location.

Neil created the Charley’s War web site back in the early 2000s, and his interest in “Charley’s War” helped spur interest from fans to boost Pat’s  campaign to see the strip reprinted by Titan Books. When Neil died unexpectedly young in 2010, I took over the running of the site and Moose very kindly began to host it in 2011.

All the resources and reference for Charley’s War featured on this site and most of the related news stories have been relocated and the British Library has an archive of the SevenPenny version of the site.
