Commando 5223-5226

Pirates in disguise on the cold seas, airmen trapped in a secret U-boat den, a despatch runner behind enemy lines in World War One and a day of doom for one British naval lieutenant! All in brand new issues 5223 – 5226, out today!

5223: Guardians of the War Grave

Vicente Alcazar makes a triumphant return to Commando after a too-long hiatus! And we’re extremely glad he came back to lend his unique, gritty style to Dominic Teague’s epic tale of pirates and privateers in the cold North Atlantic and beyond! With an ominous and mysterious cover by Neil Roberts, the story of Guardians of the War Grave just might surprise you!

5224: Cave of Secrets

We’ve got double the Jeff Bevan for this run of Commandos, kicking it off with the never before reprinted classic, ‘Cave of Secrets’! An exciting story about three airmen who crash-land on a mystery island that just happens to have a big U-boat shaped secret! You won’t believe the capers these airmen get into to survive – including floating a depth charge on a dinghy!

5225: Mud and Mayhem

There’s nothing but mud and mayhem in the trenches of George Low’s story, and poor Private Ned Nolan just can’t seem to catch a break! As if running across the war-torn hellscape of the First World War front line wasn’t bad enough, Ned’s luck is about to get worse when he gets blown off his aching feet and straight into a crater face to face with a Jerry!

5226: Day of Doom

‘Day of Doom’ is the second half of the Jeff Bevan double feature in this Commando run! Based on the interior image on page 16, Bevan’s stunning wraparound cover is bright and magnificent, and really depicts the feeling of CG Walker’s doom-laden story about Lieutenant Peter Cobb, a man whose luck just keeps getting worse. And that’s not even mentioning Cobb’s run-in with a Greek obsessed with his old gun!
