The ninth volume of Titan Books’ Charley’s War series will be released on 26th October 2012.
Sub-titled Death from Above, in this explosive new volume of never-before-collected comic strip, including for the first time reproductions of original artwork from the Colquhoun family’s archive, things are looking up for Charley after he meets the love of his life. But the happy occasion of their wedding is destroyed by the roar of destructive Zeppelin Bombers from Berlin!
This volume’s feature by Steve White concerns the very real issue of about shellshock for combatants and the War Poets. As usual, writer Pat Mills provides a commentary on the strip itself.
