BATTLE is back! And it’s blazing into action in all good newsagents and comic book stores, as well as digitally from the Treasury of British Comics!

Battle revolutionised comics in the 1970s – gritty, hardcore war stories that rejected gung-ho patriotism in favour of telling the stories of the soldiers doing the real fighting.

This special issue, timed to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, features new work by Garth Ennis (Preacher), Alex de Campi (Madi), Glenn Fabry (Preacher), Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy) and many more!

With a Treasury of British Comics webshop exclusive wraparound cover by Keith Burns or the standard cover by Nelson Daniel, this bumper 100-page anthology evokes the spirit of the origina Battle while also adding its own twist to the modern ‘war comic’!
