Commando 5507-5510

Four brand-new Commando comics coming at you! With Royal Navy in the North African desert, Grumman F6F Hellcats in the Pacific, golden treasure in Burma, and a time-travelling paradox during the Battle of Britain! And you won’t have long to wait till you can get ‘em because they’re out Thursday!  

5507: Flight Time

Strange goings-on in Issue 5507 ‘Flight Time’! Air-bus co-pilot Jack Lewis was sick of being a glorified petrol station for real fighters in the sky. But Jack’s humdrum life is soon turned upside down when he wakes up at RAF Norton in 1940 as his grandfather’s wingman! Can he learn how to fly like an ace before it’s too late — or will he go down in flames?!

A debut Commando from writer Norman Ferguson who tackles this time-travelling trip into the Battle of Britain with a little help from Paolo Ongaro’s mind-bending art!

5508: No Time For Fear

Talk about a fish out of water in Issue 5508 ‘No Time For Fear’! Well, meet Able Seaman Tim Jackson and Chris Walters of HM Submarine Service, who found themselves in the middle of the North African desert without so much as a plan. With little choice — and no time for fear — Walters and Jackson soon became the toughest pair of desert fighters west of El Alamein, with a little help from a SAS bloke determined to knock some sense into them!

 A classic Commando from 1969 with an amazing story and artwork from the titans of Commando!

5509: Hell in a Hellcat

You've heard about "going to hell in a handbasket" well Issue 5509 is hell in a Grumman F6F Hellcat for Lieutenant Frank Stewart! Frank’s life gets turned upside down when he is reassigned to a new aircraft carrier and with it comes a new Commanding Officer straight out of his past — one he never thought he'd see again! This mystery man just so happens to be his father and the two have a lot of catching up to do — between fending off Japanese attacks, that is!

A gut-wrenching comic by established Commando writer Brent Towns topped off with awesome art by Morhain and a high-drama cover by Carlos Pino!

5510: The Spoils of War

Could Bert Foster get away with stealing a priceless golden belt from a temple in the Burmese jungle? Not if the fearsome local warriors could help it! Capers and hijinks aplenty in this Silver era Commando as Issue 5510 ‘Spoils of War’ feels like Commando meets Indiana Jones! Lucky there’s no giant boulders in this issue — only crocodiles, raging rivers, some very angry locals intent on getting justice!
