5.0 out of 5 stars Consistently Gripping and Involving, 25 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Charley's War: Return to the Front (Charley's War) (Hardcover)
As with all the previous editions, this latest collection of the Charley's War strips is made up of wonderful, detailed and moving artwork carrying along great story-telling.

Through Charley we see the effects and impact of the Great War on an ordinary bloke. Although a fictitious character, Charley goes through what real men did thanks to through research by the author and artists. The politics and social comment might be over done, or it might just be an accurate reflection.

Charley's War is about as far removed from Batman and Superman comics as you can imagine, but is all the more powerful and memorable for it. As this is the 90th anniversary of the end of the Great War it is a good time to read (or even re-read) these stories.

Highly recommended for all ages and all levels of knowledge on the subject.
