Battling Britons 3 - cover design by Bill Cunningham

Following the success of the brilliant first two volumes, Battling Britons 3 again delves into the history of British war comics, offering a mix of reviews and features on titles including Commando, Battle and many more.

Last year, Justin Marriott, editor and publisher of Battling Britons, who, also publishes titles such as Paperback Fanatic, Men of Violence, Hot Lead and The Sleazy Reader, told us he didn’t actually set out to produce this publication – but I’m very glad he did, because as I suspected, it’s proven an indispensable guide for British war comics fans. Do check it out!
