New volume of Charley's War on sale now
Charley's War: Hitler's Youth, the eighth volume of the classic World War One comic strip by Pat Mills and Joe Colquhoun, first published in Battle Picture Weekly, is now on sale from Titan Books, although the official publication date is 28th October.
In this explosive new volume of never-before-collected comic strip, Charley comes face to face with a young corporal who will eventually change the face of the world as leader of the Nazi party: Adolf Hitler.
The eighth action-packed volume of Charley's War is rich in the detailed minutiae of the terror-punctuated existence of a Tommy
and is the first to benefit from the use of original artwork from the story, kindly loaned by the Colquhoun family.
Speaking as the editor of the collection, Moose Harris, who did all the scans, has done a knock out job on the strip pages.
Also included in the book is a feature by Steve White about Hitler's role in the First World War - and a commentary on the strip featured in the volume Charley's War co-creator and script writer Pat Mills.
• Charley's War: Hitler's Youth is available from 28th October 2011 all good bookshops.
