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 multiverse existence of Charlotte Corday, encompass similar storylines but told in different ways…
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.

The follow up to London Calling. Charlotte Corday is back as the mysterious secret agent whose missions are so top secret even she doesn’t know what they are and opens with a Word War Two German U-boat surfacing in Charlotte’s bathtub, as Page and Walsh give us another fabulous dose of the weird and wonderful that made London Calling such a hit.
