The Many Faces of Charlotte Corday - Art by Keith Page

This Page was last updated on 19th December 2021

The stories are listed in below in a sort of chronological order, but most do not follow on from each other and some, because of the multiversal existence of Charlotte Corday, encompass similar storylines but told in different ways…

London Calling

London Calling 2021 Cover

By Stephen Walsh and Keith Page

First published by Timebomb Comics

London Calling places a confused Charlotte in 1950s London in which not everything is quite as it should be. During World War Two, the French experimented with giving their troops vampire blood to try to make them impervious to bombs and bullets but post-war this backfired with an outbreak of vampirism in the country. To prevent the vampires taking over Paris the city was taken out of time using captured Nazi technology and now, as it tries to return, it is causing ripples in the fabric of time that are affecting Charlotte Corday in her undercover mission in London.

There, befriended by a charming vampire called Luca and while looking for another French agent, she gets caught up in a raid on a vampire club by the Metropolitan Police’s V-Squad and is arrested suspected of being a vampire herself.

The whole plot is book ended by a different Charlotte recovering her children from a flooded London and telling them the story of the book to pass the time.

Described as ‘Rorke’s Drift in Space’, The Iron Moon is a fast-paced steampunk-inspired adventure starring no-nonsense adventuress Charlotte Corday and is now available worldwide for iPad from the Apple iTunes store.

In the story, the twentieth century is just around the corner and Queen Victoria is hale and hearty as she heads into the second century of her reign. The British Empire stretches from the white cliffs of Dover to the red skies of Mars. Go-getting men and women of the imperial dominions flock to the colours, eager to make reputations and fortunes in the wilds of high space.

Take lieutenant Charlotte Corday, for instance. Born in what used to be known as France, she has risen to prominence through the ranks of the Royal Space Navy and now finds herself up to her neck in her greatest escapade yet. Watch as she travels to the mysterious Iron Moon! Marvel as she grapples with a conspiracy that may see the galaxy plunged into war! Goggle as she meets new and strange races, both mechanical and biological! Ponder how she manages to put away so many cups of tea! And prepare to have your brain scrambled as she scoops us up and carries us to the very limits of this universe… and into the next!

Plunger’s Last Case

101 pages – Black and White – Not currently available

In which Charlotte appears somewhat bewildered in the 1970’s. The usual sort of thing, including a secret government plot, a huge floating city and the Great God Fantog. Plunger’s last case is a pretty spectacular one.

“This is written by Stephen Walsh and is based on an actual event, notes Keith, “and was inspired by a mixture of A Clockwork OrangeThe Quatermass Conclusion  and Captain Scarlet!

“It also features some new characters: a youthful writer and someone inspired by Steve Strange. I have a brief appearance as a young artist visiting ‘Matt Pills’.”
