Best of Battle
I must admit I've never been a fan of war comics (mainly 'cos I'm not a fan of war!). However at least the seventies comic Battle Picture Weekly did go some way to try and portray the grittier side of armed conflict. (The marvelous anti-war story Charley's War being one standout strip of course.)
Now an enthusiast of Battle comic has just launched an impressive new website dedicated to the title. Over at Captain Hurricane's Best of Battle there are scans of some of the stories and articles on the history of the comic. It's a fine tribute to one of the best British comics of that era and well worth a visit.
