Commando 5235-5238

Brand new Commando issues #5235 – 5258 are out today! From secret messages to Douglas Boston bombers, from Nazi rail guns to a booby-trapped Lee Enfield – these issues have it all!

5235: The Message

Get ready for a rip-roaring adventure as Joe Capshaw is chased across enemy territory by the maniacal SS Hauptsturmfuhrer Weber. Shortly after a British agent relays important information to Joe, he knows he’s got to escape from the prisoner of war camp he’s being held in. With help from the infamous ‘Bakerloo Line’, will he deliver the message — or will it all end in disaster?

5236: Bombs Away!

The artistic duo of Gordon C Livingstone and Ian Kennedy combine talents for ‘Bombs Away!’, a marvellous RAF story. As recruits flying Avro Ansons, Ted Whitaker’s dislike for Simon Naylor was immediate. Where Ted was calm and collected, Naylor played it fast and loose with his life and that of his crews. When they went their separate ways, Ted hoped never to see Naylor ever again — but fate had something else in store for the hated allies.

5237: Ramsey’s Raiders: Off The Rails

The Raiders return for another raucous mission – but what’s this? Where’s the big man himself? Surely it can’t be ‘Ramsey’s Raiders’ without Ramsey?! Without Jimmy the whole thing just might fall apart! But not if Ramsey’s second in command, Lieutenant Tex Hall, has anything to do with it! He’s going to make sure the mission stays on track no matter what the Germans — or the uncooperative Sergeant Derek Jarvis throw at him!

5238: Trigger Trap

It may look like a normal Lee Enfield rifle — but this one has a little secret; it’s a time bomb. Clogged with a plug of hardened clag in its muzzle, it’s just waiting for the right — or wrong — person to pull the trigger. Passed from hand to hand, this deadly weapon is a Trigger Trap just waiting to happen!
