“This really is the definitive edition” – Pat Mills
Considered by many as the most important war story to appear in comics, Charley’s War is being published in a new three-volume definitive collection mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.
Deeply affecting, unsparingly hard, and unflinchingly political, Charley’s War follows sixteen-year-old working class lad Charley Bourne who eagerly signs up to fight on the Western Front in 1916.
The idealistic sixteen-year-old experiences a hellish world of trench warfare where every day is a bitter fight for survival, and Charley and his friends soon realise they have been thrust into a conflict where ordinary people are expected to throw away their lives to serve the selfish interests of those in power.
Written by British comics legend Pat Mills, this first volume of Charley’s War: The Definitive Collection features new lettering and restored colour pages, as well as painstaking reprographics work to sharpen the breathtaking artwork of the late, great Joe Colquhoun, returning this groundbreaking comic to its true glory for the very first time.
A must for every bookshelf and school library, the first of three omnibus volumes from The Treasury of British Comics will be released in April 2018, with the next volumes due for release in May and June.
2000 AD’s ultra-violent answer to The Six Million Dollar Man is perfect for fans of The Prisoner and Westworld – a much-sought after series that has never been collected before!

Using the technology of computerised acupuncture, they grafted a computer circuit onto his skull and inserted special electro-needles into his body and now he can increase his energy flow until he has the strength of fifty men! Terrorists and enemy agents beware!
John Probe is much more than a man; he is a Man Activated by Compu-Puncture Hyperpower!
