Commando 5215-5218

From the Soviet Union to World War One France, and from Italy to Crete, join Commando for brand new issues out today!

5215: A Matter Of Honour

Keith Burns returns for his second ever Commando cover! This time taking to the skies above no man’s land in the First World War! Burns’ sublime cover shows the dogfight duel between Iain McLaughlin’s protagonist, Pierre Lafitte, and his bitter rival, Gustav Von Brunnner. The war is just a backdrop for their hatred because for them, whoever wins, it is a matter of honour!

Story: Iain McLaughlin

5216: Suicide Squad

What a stunning cover on ‘Suicide Squad’ by Jordi Penalva on its first outing since 1972! Leach’s story has some strong themes, with his tortured main character at the end of his tether! Lieutenant Don Lockton is plagued by both guilt and his tough sergeant, who blames him for the death of his brother! With a fiery climax to this Commando, you won’t want to miss it!

Story: Leach
Art: Fleming

5217: Lady Death

The female soviet sniper was a deadly huntress in the battered wastes outside Odessa in Ukraine. The Romanian and German Armies were laying siege to the countryside in a deadly Blitzkrieg and they had to be stopped! Private Svetlana Korzh was just the woman for the job – and hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! Something a certain German sniper was about to find out!

5218: Escape from Crete

When the Germans took Crete – they took it hard and fast, leaving the British reeling! Something that Ian Clark’s Frank Wilson would learn the hard way! But Frank had more reason than anyone to want to Escape from Crete – he had been accepted for aircrew training and he wanted nothing more than to get off the island and into a plane!

Story: Ian Clark

Cover: Ian Kennedy
Originally Commando No. 2711 (1993).
