The Astounding Adventures of Charlie Peace was a comic strip in the UK comic Buster, based on the real-life exploits of nineteenth-century thief Charles Peace,[1] though the first strip appeared July 20, 1964 in Valiant. When it started it was set in Victorian times, but in an episode published in January 1968, Charlie was tricked by an inventor into entering a time machine disguised as a safe, and transported to modern London. The strip was drawn by Eric Bradbury (1964-1965), then followed by Tom Kerr (1964-1966), Jack Pamby (1965-1974), Alan Philpott (1966), Doug Maxted and Anon (1966).[2]

In popular culture[edit]

In 2005, Peace was featured in the comic series Albion by Alan Moore, Leah Moore and John Reppion.[3] In that series Charlie teams up with two much-younger allies to crack a prison that is holding guilty and innocent special beings, imprisoned simply for being different.
