“The Adventures of Charlotte Corday” presentation on the digital comics platform Tapas has been revamped, consolidating many of the previously-published stories on the platform into one “umbrella” presentation.
It’s hoped this will make it easier for fans of the multiverse-spanning Charlotte Corday created by Keith Page, often aided by Stephen Walsh, to find her continuing adventures on the web comics platform.
Free to read, “The Adventures of Charlotte Corday” presentation on Tapas includes the stories “Charlotte Corday of the Süréte” (following on from “Witchcraft Street“, currently still available to read separately), “Wonderbirds”, (Keith’s inspired Thunderbirds homage), “The Fulcanelli Conumdrum”, “Shockwave Riders”, “The Wild, Wild… East End“, and the representation of the graphic novel, “London Calling”.
This new strand also features the opening episodes of the latest Charlotte Corday story, “Race of Giants“, by Stephen Walsh and Keith Page, lettered by John Freeman, which sees the multiverse-spanning adventuress take part in a race across what remains of a Europe ravaged by nine years of World War One on that Earth – followed by alien invasion!
Multiverse-spanning, time-hopping Charlotte Corday’s many lives include a steampunk space explorer and a French detective getting involved in all sorts of arcane exploits in 1950′s London, which could best be described as “Brighton Rock meets Quatermass and the Pit“.
On occasion, she has been accompanied by a ghostly assistant – a reincarnation of her father, who looks like a mule! – a character that had its origins in a strip Keith created for IPC’s Revolver many years ago.
