I’ve decided to launch a new blog featuring my comic postcards from the First World War. Bits still need tweeking!
With just a week to go to the commemorations of the outbreak of the Great War in 1914, I’ve decided to upload some of my comic cards of the period which deal with aspects of the war. They are mainly by Douglas Tempest (who mainly drew about life on the home front) and Bruce Bainsfather (who had served in the trenches). In addition I’ll post some cartoons from my bound copies of Punch.
