Steel Commando by Frank Pepper & Alex Henderson
Rebellion Publishing ISBN 978-1781--8681-0, 22 August 2019, 164pp, £6.99. Available via Amazon.

A new collection of a forgotten 20th Century classic, presented in the popular digest format. With superhuman strength, bulletproof casing and an unstoppable resolve, the Steel Commando is the Allies’ ultimate weapon in the war against the Axis powers. There’s just one bug in his circuits - he’ll only take orders from Ernie Bates, the laziest soldier in the British Army! Watch ‘Ironsides’ and ‘Excused Boots’ Bates carry out thrill-filled missions in dangerous enemy territories! This fun-packed army adventure also includes an early comic strip crossover as the Steel Commando joins forces with the mighty Captain Hurricane!
    A minor glitch in the credits: Vince Wernham is credited as an artist, but was actually a script writer, probably writing only a few fill-ins or stories for annuals/specials.

Roy of the Rovers: Best of the 1960s by Derek Birnage, Joe Colquhoun, Fred T. Holmes
Rebellion Publishing ISBN 978-1781-08718-3, 22 August 2019, 148pp, £19.99. Available via Amazon.

The sixties are a defining decade for Great Britain. London is becoming the cultural mecca of the world, the Beatles are dominating the music charts, and in 1966 England will lift the World Cup for the first time. It’s also a period of great turmoil for Melchester Rovers and their super-striker captain, Roy Race; from a saboteur within the club burning down the dressing room, an obsessed fan trying to ruin their cup run and the Rovers crash-landing on a small South American Island, the team will have to face down problems which threaten their very existence! But with Roy Race at the helm, Melchester Rovers are always equipped to overcome the odds.The skipper’s leadership, experience and all-important left foot keep the Melchester faithful singing, and may just secure the Rovers a place in the 1966 F.A. Cup Final against the mighty Eastoke! The swinging-sixties come to life in this action-packed footballing epic! Experience the highs and lows on and off the pitch with Roy and Melchester Rovers, brought to you by comics’ legend Joe Colquhoun and World Cup winner Sir Bobby Charlton.
    Reprints material from Tiger (19 Dec 1959-21 Jan 1961, 22 Jan-28 May 1966, and Roy of the Rovers Annual 1969. The opening story–involving fire-raising, a bank robbery, trips to the West Indies, South America and Italy, and a chance for Melchester to become First Division Champions–is drawn in robust style by Fred T. Holmes; the later run, involving a fervent fan named Nick Snarey who had turned against the Rovers, is drawn by Joe Colquhoun.
    It's worth a note that the cover was previously used on Titan's Bumper Book of Roy of the Rovers a few years back.
