Customer Review

on January 30, 2011
I was 11 when Johnny Red burst into Battle comic and immediately it became by favourite strip and continued to be so until Charley's War usurped it (though initially I was gutted Joe Colquhoun had switched to another story!)

Thirty plus years later it is great to re-read the first stories. Colquhoun's artwork is amazing and he captures the horror and barbarity of the Eastern Front equally as well as the trench warfare of the Western Front in Charley's War. What surprises me though is Tom Tully's writing. Pat Mills is rightly lauded as a comic writer extraordinaire but Tully is no slouch and pushes all the right buttons and levels of excitement. In the days of Play Stations and satellite TV I still think that stories like this can capture a child's imagination and start them reading (let's bury any prejudices about "war stories" and "comics" eh?)

Highly recommended, buy one for yourselfl and one for a younger relative! Hopefully Titan will print more volumes in due course...
