Albert T. Pease (better known as Charlie), brother of Harry E. Pease, was born in Hackney, London in 1905. Both brothers were artists and they had very similar styles, however it was Charlie who made a career out of comic art. It is believed that Charlie worked in a bicycle shop prior to becoming employed with Amalgamated Press in 1924. He was married twice. His first marriage was in the early to mid 1920s, which produced one daughter in 1925. However the marriage did not last and following his divorce, he subsequentally remarried. This marriage produced four daughters and two sons.

For the next 40 years until his death in 1964, Charlie's work was never out of the funny comics. One of his most popular strips was Casey Court which ran for over ten years in the pages of Illustrated Chips. Towards the end of his career he took over the Billy Bunter strip from Frank Minnitt in Knockout and continued it in Valiant when Knockout folded. Charlie died in Febuary 1964 at Depford.
