Commando 5271-5274

Brand new issues of Commando are out today, including a new cover artist, a Nazi Wellington bomber, a propaganda hero and a cursed Cornish man!

5271: Faceless Heroes

Commando is pleased to introduce its newest cover artist, Tom Foster. His first Commando cover, Faceless Heroes, tackles eco-terrorists holding world leaders hostage in a country estate. But the skull-faced terrorists aren’t going to have it that simple as an elite masked team are on hand to take the bad guys down for good. Although officially, the mysterious masked team were never there and credit would never be given to the so-called Faceless Heroes.
