Commando 5499-5502

Four new Commandos incoming! Heroes find themselves under siege and villains under fire, as luck keeps life and limb together in another four stonking adventures! Issues 5499-5502 are out this Thursday.

5499: Ramsey’s Raiders: The Castle

The Raiders are back for another adventure — and this time under siege! Teamed up with a hot-headed Commando unit and holed up in a gothic castle, the rag-tag team of heroes are outgunned and outnumbered by wave after wave of enemy soldiers. However, the real problem may come from the enemy within… and only some cool, calm and collected teamwork might be able to save the mission!

Another rollicking adventure from Ferg Handley with lively interiors from Carlos Pino and another striking cover from veteran artist Ian Kennedy.

5500: Honk Kong Hooky

For our five-thousand-five-hundredth issue, Commando visits Hong Kong, as Royal Navy Lieutenant Commander “Hooky” Jackson defends invasion with a paltry group of military scruffs, fresh from the glass-house and ready for a fight! But as one man’s deviousness might hand the region over to the Japanese, can Hooky turn him around and continue to fight the good fight?

A sinister tale of three devious SS officials with a taste for the finer things in life.

5502: Who Needs Luck?

Pilot Officer Sid Carter flies the renowned Beaufighter on raids over the jungle — a job requiring courage and skill. But Carter lacks faith in himself and insists that luck is all that keeps him and his fellow airborne heroes together — and he’ll need more of it if he’s going to survive this war!
