5.0 out of 5 stars More Classic British Comics But Please Shut Up, Pat Mills!, 17 Feb. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Charley's War: Blue's Story v. 4 (Hardcover)
Charley's War is certainly a classic British comic strip and has lots to recommend it. Unfortunately the downside to these lavish reprints comes with Pat Mill's commentaries. While they are interesting when he talks about the production of the strip they veer into unintended comedy when he begins his customary Left wing agit-prop ranting. Charley's War dates from a time early in Mills' carer when he still tried to write stories instead of crude political tracts and introducing the customary mix of paranoia and vanity which marks 70's left overs like him really spoils things.

Kudos to Pat though for consistently putting forward the name of Charley's War artist Joe Colquhoun as a forgotten master. His art IS amazing and accounts for more than the 50% of the success of Charley's War which Mills ascribes to it. Without Joe's art Charley's War would be utterly forgotten today and he shows that he can drag the story through Mills posturing agit-prop.
