World War One in comics form Angus MacLeod

I love the British Isles reaction to the German attack through Belgium "you wanker" and the donning of the war moustache is a great touch (and indeed a great 'tache). Angus also has a similarly (and again deceptively simply but actually bloody clever) strip condensing the history of the Second World War as well – see below for a snip – so  go and check it out.
