Commando 5407-5410

Drama, drama and more action-packed drama! A tense and fast-moving set of Commando comics take on the perils of air, land, and sea in issues 5407-5410— out today!

 5407: Fair Play

Even in warfare there are rules, but as tensions rise and ordinary men strive to become heroes, those can be thrown aside. As notions of fair play give pause for thought while at sea, one man’s disregard for these standing agreements between allies and foes alike could throw his reputation, and the survival of his colleagues, into doubt. In the choice between revenge and honour, Davie Jones’ locker is waiting regardless…

Paolo Ongaro’s dramatic artwork adds tension in this submarine drama from Steve Taylor, with a dynamic cover from Ian Kennedy.

5408: Gold Collection: Terror Team

Tom Barton makes a bold move when he takes on another man’s identity to get into the thick of the fighting and dodge his desk job. But little does he know the back story of the identity he has assumed! With a vengeful Sergeant breathing down his neck and a constant battle against claustrophobia, Tom has an uphill battle to prove himself in this tense drama.

Leach’s story has been brought to life with stunning interiors from Gonzales and a classic Penalva cover.

5409: The Flight of the Lanky Lou

As a new plane arrives with fresh-faced Flight Sergeant Owen Lewis, the bomber is christened after the tall and beautiful Louise, who has just dumped one of the plane’s crew in waiting. Just like her namesake, the Lanky Lou proves to be a cruel mistress, as Lewis does his best to fit in as a replacement for a well-loved team member. But with an unforgiving bomber who’s grief is still fresh, at zero feet over Germany, Owen finds himself the prime target!

Morhain and Defeo’s interiors add humour and pathos to Andrew Knighton’s fresh and thought-provoking story, with a cover by veteran artist Ian Kennedy.

Captain Barry West is on a mission to locate and identify a thorn in the side of the Allies — an untouchable spy known only by the codename “Leopard”. Undercover and in Britain wreaking havoc, Leopard remains elusive until Barry finds himself on the continent dodging Nazi bullets and red herrings as he closes in on a sinister trail!

RA Montague’s action-packed spy drama keeps you guessing, with solid interiors from Ruiz and a timeless cover from Ian Kennedy.
