Commando 5187-5190

Brand new Commando issues 5187-5190 are out now! Featuring icy escapes in the Russian wilderness, furious fights alongside the Red Devils, night-vision missions in the Iraqi desert and disastrous Luftwaffe raids over London!

5187: Ice-Cold Commando
Graeme Neil Reid returns for his second ever Commando cover! Fronting Jaume Forns’ icy interiors to ‘Ice-Cold Commando’, Reid’s cover leaps into action with Commando Lieutenant Ron Lamont’s escape across the frozen Russian wasteland. Get your woollies on, troops, it’s time to go skiing!

Story: George Low
Art: Jaume Forns
Cover: Graeme Neil Reid

5188: Strike at Sundown
Get ready for ‘Strike at Sundown’s first airing since 1967! Never before reprinted, writer Clegg’s father and son Red Devil duo tackle the Wehrmacht in the Mediterranean in Segrelles’ artwork. What’s more, this Commando also boasts a striking cover from Segrelles with a hero who looks a little like Mickey Rooney!

Story: Clegg

Cover: Segrelles
Originally Commando No. 286 (July 1967)

5189: Flight into Darkness

Manuel Benet does it again with yet another stunning cover – and this time in NIGHT VISION! But this is no toy soldier, as Kris Roberts returns to Commando with a yarn set amidst the dramatic backdrop of the Gulf War with a daring SAS raid and rescue!

Cover: Manuel Benet

5190: Jinx Raid
Lady Luck is not on the side of the Luftwaffe as Burden writes of an ill-fated bombing raid over London in ‘Jinx Raid’! In this issue, we’re extremely lucky to have explosive interiors by Gordon C Livingstone, all topped off with a fiery wrap-around cover by Ian Kennedy – unfortunately, the Luftwaffe crews are less than thrilled by it.

Cover: Ian Kennedy
Originally Commando No. 2893 (October 1995)
