Rodge Glass, award winning author of No Fireworks, Hope for New Borns, Alasdair Gray: A Secretary’s Biography and the forthcoming Bring Me the Head of Ryan Giggs, and Pat Mills, widely acknowledged as 'the godfather of British comics' through his work on Charley’s War, 2000AD and Judge Dredd and many subsequent comics and graphic novels, discuss Dougie’s War, Rodge’s graphic novel (with Dave Turbitt) about one soldier’s return from Afghanistan and the long terms psychological effects of combat.

Meticulously researched and based on the testimonies of real veterans, Dougie’s War, nominated for the SCIBA Graphic Novel of the Year, tells the bleak and gripping story of Dougie Campbell, a fictional soldier who suffers from post-traumatic stress syndrome, something first dealt with in comic form by Pat Mills’s pioneering Charley’s War in the late 1970s.
