Commando 5527-5530

A fresh set of Commandos with two debut writers alongside some veteran classics. Action-packed thrills all-round in this fabulous foursome! Issues 5527-5530 are out today.

5527: Thunder

Deep in enemy territory, what happens in the jungle stays in the jungle — or so says Sergeant Masters, the late Sergeant Smit’s replacement. As the pressures of the Vietnam War mount upon the American soldiers, inspired by the philosophies of his mentor and pushed on by the death of his brother, only men like Corporal Mike Thunder stand in the way of atrocities on both sides.

Introducing new writer Peter Morrisson in this tense Vietnam story with interiors by Muller and a dramatic cover by Mark Harris.

5528: The Fugitives

They say men go mad in the desert, and when thirteen desperate Nazis take Lieutenant Steve Roland and Brigadier Alan Warren prisoner, Steve finally understands why! Why the enemy aren’t shipping them off to HQ is a mystery, but coping with Warren is almost as difficult as escaping the enemy as Steve fights to save them both in the desert wastes.

A classic Commando story from Allan, with delightful interiors from Kennedy and an iconic cover from Penalva.

5529: Underground!

After the accident at the mines, Charlie Newlands was never the same. Eager to support his bereaved family he enlists in 1914, hoping to put the past behind him. But Charlie must face his worst nightmares as he battles it out with his former boss on the front lines, in the one place he never wanted to find himself again… Underground!

Stephen Hume debuts in this action-packed drama, with stark interiors from De Feo and an emotive cover from Neil Roberts.

5530: Follow the Leader!

One false move and anything can happen in a battle — you could even wake up to find yourself a hero — and that’s exactly what happened to Jeff Parker on D-Day! The only man to have seen action anywhere near the beaches, Jeff inspires his green unit as they take on the Nazis and find true heroes in themselves.

This amusing story of misunderstandings from Motton is beautifully complimented by interiors from well-loved Commando artist, Gordon C. Livingstone, with a painterly cover from Philpott.

Comic Cuts — 25 March 2022

It has been a bit of a crazy week. I've been trying to sort out things like doctors and dentists and while all is fine, it's a faff that I could do without as I always find it frustrating to sit on the phone while a recording tells me how important I am. I was also quite amazed to work out that, for the duration I was sat in the chair at the dentists, my dentist was earning about £150 an hour. No wonder he only needs me to visit every six months.

With Mel now back at work we are no longer walking along the river every day, but we were out and about at the weekend and decided to walk along the tow path that heads westwards and swings around to link up with the Wivenhoe Trail, which takes us east and back towards home.

Over the past couple of years, the Trail has been a source of contention between the local council and a firm that was looking after the area known as Ferry Marsh (partly enclosed by the two routes of the tow path and the Wivenhoe Trail). There was an argument about whose job it was to open a sluice that helped drain the marsh. When we were using the Trail during the summer, the water levels were high, which was nice because it meant secluded pools were being used by coots and moorhens and other birds that we wouldn't normally see.

During the winter we avoided the Trail because the canopy of trees meant that it never dried out properly. We were warned by friends in February that the water was now lapping over the path, which was constantly muddy. We also heard that, about two weeks ago, the council was taking back control of the area and was planning to open the sluices.

We left it a week or so to give the path a chance to dry out and on Sunday we took the opportunity of a sunny day to see what a difference it had made. And the difference was huge. Not only was the path almost dry, the water level had dropped a couple of feet. I dug out a couple of photos from March 2021, so this was not the Trail at its worst, but you can definitely see how bad it was a year ago.

I was scanning some westerns this week and I'll be working on a volume of The Steel Claw next, which is a bit of treat for me as it's my favourite strip!

Comic Cuts — 18 March 2022

We had our closest to a Covid scare this week following Mel's trip to a convention when she was told that someone had been "pinged" on Monday, and a general warning had gone out to attendees on Facebook. She was feeling a bit scratchy in the throat, but tested negative. A friend, however, tested positive on Tuesday, so everyone is taking tests daily. I will add that all of us are fully jabbed and boosted, so nobody is expecting anything other than a mild infection, if anything. It does mean that four of the nine games' players who regularly get together for our Saturday zoom games have now had the bug. Keep being careful, folks! [[Thursday night update: we're up to five now; another friend who attended the same convention has the bug. As of this morning Mel's latest test came back negative and I'm feeling fine.]]

I have been waiting on some information in order to complete my first batch of Spider introductions, so I still have a little bit of tinkering to do there, although they're for the most part done. While I have been waiting I've switched back to cleaning up artwork, concentrating this week on 'Patty's World' so that it can be translated into Spanish, coloured and published in a nice, neat hardback format as 'Esther y su mundo' [Esther and her world]. I wasn't involved in the first volume, but did some work for the second, which is coming out at the end of this month, and I'm currently working on volume three for (I think) publication in the summer.

I'm told that copies of the first two books I was involved with are on their way, which I'm very much looking forward to. One will be the third edition of The Steel Claw that I've been involved with (one for Titan, one for Egmont in Finland, and now one in Spain!). It's still my favourite strip!

What does this mean for the Action book. Well, this is what will pay for it. I have kept Bear Alley Books going for over a decade, but it isn't by any means a money-spinner. I've had to pause work on books on more than one occasion so that I can earn some money. If I'm frugal, that means I can then spend a few months researching and writing the next book. It occasionally means projects getting left along the wayside — The Valiant Index is still waiting to be completed, the new edition of The Mike Western Story, updates to the Power Comics indexes and the trio of Knockout, Comet and Sun... they're all waiting in the wings.

In the meantime, I still have rent to pay every month and it looks very much like we're about to go into a Seventies style inflationary spiral again, thanks to the three fisted gut-punch of Brexit, Covid and Putin. I don't have the financial parachute of a steady job, and my business costs are rising (everything is going up from printing costs to postage charges) — and that's on top of the soaring cost of living. Like everyone, our gas and electricity bills are about to more than double, the cost of food is rising (faster than inflation if, like me, you favour the value ranges of foods which are rapidly becoming a thing of the past), and both council tax and National Insurance are going up next month.

I don't want to sound too gloomy, but I'm in a niche market and, while I never expected to make a fortune, I also can't afford to lose my shirt. I love doing these books, but they have to take a back seat for a couple of months so that I can pay the bills. But do let me know if you know any oligarchs with a spare billion or two that they need to offload quickly, and I'll drop everything and get back to work on the last section of Action!

Commando 5523-5526

Brand-new issues of Commando are out today, featuring watercolourists in the Somme, rival truck drivers, spies in the North African Desert, and a deadly aircraft carrier prowling the Pacific!

5523: Set the Somme

Captain Archibald Rankin had been on the front line of the Great War for two years. He was a no-nonsense officer type who wanted nothing more than to get his men through alive. So why, when he asked for reinforcements to his beleaguered line, did they send him men armed with paintbrushes and scenery, led by a pompous nitwit of an artist? Rankin didn’t care if he was Sir Reginald Bluth the famous landscape painter commissioned by the king —he wanted fighting men not camoufleurs!

Andrew Knighton spotlights an unusual part of the First World War often overlooked – but no longer! And with an atmospheric Neil Roberts cover to boot!

Story | Andrew Knighton
Art| Klacik
Cover | Neil Roberts

5524: Battle-wagon

In the whole British Army, there was no truck driver as dashing or daring as Corporal Bill Bragg... that’s what all Bill Bragg’s men believed. But one day, when Bill was driving flat out, he heard a truck horn behind him blare out an angry request to pass. At the wheel of the pursuing truck was Corporal Mike Maguire who was never happy to be second to anybody... not even to big Bill Bragg. It was the start of a private war that made the real war look like a picnic.

A classic Commando from the 1960s’ vault with Smith’s masterful writing and Alonso and Lopez Epsi on artwork duty. This isn’t one to miss!

Story | Smith
Art | Alonso
Cover | Lopez Epsi
Originally Commando No. 422 (1969)

5525: Sink the Shokaku!

A secret, third Shokaku-Class Aircraft Carrier carries eight twin dual-purpose guns, twelve anti-aircraft guns and over seventy-two aircraft — a heck of a threat for the Royal Australian Navy in the South Pacific! But there are two rowdy and tenacious captains who won’t rest until it goes under! A regular couple of Ahabs, this is one white whale that will never get away from them.

Another story in the hugely successful HMS Wombat and Tiger series from Brent Towns doing what he does best! He’s teamed up with Morhain and Keith Burns on art yet again making this a universally amazing issue!

Story | Brent Towns
Art | Morhain
Cover | Keith Burns

5526: Hot Sand Cold Courage

The war in the Western Desert was a game of cat and mouse, with each side desperately trying to find out what the other was planning. When the Germans seemed to be gaining the upper hand, it was up to British Intelligence and a very cunning agent to set the balance right.

A silver era issue come to play again with CG Walker on script and Nebot and Jeff Bevan on art.

An illustrated bibliography of the western novels by Peter C. Watts

An illustrated bibliography of the western novels
by Peter C. Watts

by Anders N. Nilsson & Patrik Myrman

(Note: This being a lengthy feature means that the second, illustrated section has been pushed onto a second page. When you  reach the end of the text for this first part, click on the "older pages" link below and to the right of the article and you'll find the illustrations. Or click here and the illustrated post will open in a new window.)


The British author Peter C. Watts (1919-1983; not Canadian SF-author with same name born in 1958) had his first western novels published under the pseudonym Matt Chisholm in 1958 by Panther Books Ltd, started by Hamilton’s in London in 1952. Altogether 65 of his novels were first published by Panther, the last one in 1971. In 1961 and 1962 two of his novels were published under the pseudonym Luke Jones by Consul Books, an imprint of World Distributors (Manchester), active between 1961 and 1966. In 1963 Watts had two of his Chisholm novels published by Mayflower Books Ltd, or Mayflower Dell, started in 1962 as a British branch of the US Dell Publisher. Altogether 26 of his novels were first published by Mayflower, the last one in 1974. Both Mayflower and Panther Books were in 1968 bought by Granada Publishing Ltd, who owned them until 1983, when they were sold to William Collins, Sons & Co Ltd in Glasgow.  Between 1978 and 1981 Watts had 22 new Chisholm titles published by Hamlyn Books, at the time a part of the IPC media group. Outside Great Britain, Watts had between 1974 and 1984 another 22 of his novels published as first editions in Norwegian translation by the Bladkompaniet publisher in Oslo. The pseudonym Cy James was first used by Watts in 1963, and whereas Matt Chisholm was used on 112 of his first editions, Cy James was used on only 21. In some of the German editions, Watts novels were published under house names like Les Hondo, Ben Tucker, and Gordon Forbes Uvalde.

Many Matt Chisholm books were bestsellers with a wide distribution globally, and the back cover blurb on Mayflower’s editions from the 70’s cites Daily Mirror: “Matt Chisholm has one of the biggest world sales of any writer – seven million people in eleven countries have bought his tales.” Besides the countries cited below, the English editions were sold also in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Africa, according to the back cover price information. Bastei’s German McAllister paperbacks had back cover prices indicating distribution in Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, and Switzerland.

Format of bibliography

The bibliography includes 579 editions in nine different languages from eleven different countries of 135 western novels by Peter Watts. Most editions are paperbacks, and other formats included are hardbacks, magazines, romanhefte, and e-books. Audiobook editions are excluded. The basic unit in the bibliography is the story, recognized by its contents and named by the title used in its first and original publication.

Based on the name of the lead character, novel-length stories are here separated into 50 stand-alone and the following five series based on the name of the lead character: Blade (13), Hodge (3), McAllister (51), Spur (9) and Storm (9). Within each category the original titles are sorted alphabetically. Different editions of each story are first sorted after country of publication, with England first and the others following in alphabetical order, and then after year of publication. It is noted when the author name used on an edition differs from the one used on the first edition.

Within parenthesis after the author name of the first edition are given for each story some names of characters or towns mentioned in the text. When the full text of the novel was not available these names were taken from back cover blurb or e-book previews. In the stand-alone novels, two names representing the lead protagonist and antagonist or female partner were aimed at, whereas in novels belonging to series with a fixed hero, only one additional name was aimed at. The replacement of the name of the lead character in later editions is noted, a practice seemingly restricted to Norway and the Bladkompaniet publisher.

Geography of editions

Besides the 237 British editions, Norway stands out with their 151 editions, followed by Sweden with 60 and Germany with 58. Noteworthy are also the 24 Danish and 25 USA editions, whereas the remaining five countries all had ten or less. As noted in the introduction, Norway is unique in having 22 Matt Chisholm titles, only published in this country. Consequently, 129 of the 135 Watts’s western novels have been published in Norwegian translation, compared to only 113 in English. Of other languages, 57 novels exist in Swedish, 48 in German and 23 in Danish translations, whereas no other language has more than ten titles translated. It should here be noted that the Swedish McAllister series of books included 38 titles, of which only the first 13 ones were by Watts as Matt Chisholm. The remaining titles were either old novels by Australian authors with the name of the lead character changed to McAllister or new novels by Swedish authors.

Looking at the individual titles, the stand-alone novel The proud horseman from 1963 is the only one that never got translated into any other language. Many of the stand-alone novels were translated into Norwegian and Swedish, some also into German, and occasional ones also into some other language. The Blade series titles were translated into Norwegian on the spot, but not into any other language. The Storm family titles were translated into German and Norwegian, and three of them also into Swedish. A pattern more or less shared with the three Ben Hodge titles. All Spur titles appeared also in Norwegian, and minor selections of them also in Danish, German, and Swedish. Whereas the later McAllister titles, from after 1972, were translated almost exclusively into Norwegian, the majority of the earlier ones had a wide dissemination. Titles like McAllister and Gunsmoke for McAllister were published in eight different countries and translated into seven different languages.

Series and subseries

Of all Watts’s western novels, only Hamlyn’s Blade and McAllister titles formed separately numbered series at the time of their first publication. Of the translated editions, only the Danish, German, and Swedish McAllister series are of this kind. In the absence of a separate enumeration, there are several examples of subseries among the studied editions. Uniformity of cover design characterizes both the Panther and Mayflower McAllister subseries, as well as the Panther/Mayflower Storm family subseries. On the other hand, the Piccadilly Spur e-book series is a later construct, not evident from the seemingly stand-alone paperback editions.

In Norway, Bladkompaniet’s Stjernebok editions of Watts’s novels form a special case. Stjerneserien was started already in 1939 and had reached 2560 numbered titles when ended in year 2000. Books including western stories were frequently marked with the “Stjernewestern” logo. The McAllister subseries started in 1972 with book no. 473. After 35 titles the name of the subseries was changed to M. Chisholm. It ended after 128 titles in 1984 with Stjernebok no. 1103. Within the subseries books were also marked as belonging to an additional sublevel, like Joe Blade or Sam Spur.

Ambiguous titles

Book series named after the hero may have a problem with the correct citation of titles (Nilsson 2014), and McAllister is no exception. The problem is based on the question of when the series’ logo, i.e. the name of the hero, is part of the title and when not. Looking at the different British McAllister editions illustrates the problem well. The name McAllister as cover logo on the 1969-1970 Panther editions is evidently part of each book’s title. On the other hand, on the Mayflower 1975-1977 editions all titles are printed on the cover separate from the subseries’ name, and the name of the hero is part of only some of the titles. The Hamlyn 1981 titles are, however, ambiguous, as the logo is evidently part of the titles of the four first ones, but seemingly not so of the four last ones. As libraries as a rule register titles from a book’s title page, problems of this kind are hard to settle without access to entire books.

Cover art

Looking at cover art on the 72 British Panther editions of Watts’s novels, a clear pattern emerges. Whereas the first title, Half-breed, has a locally produced cover by Pat Owen, it is followed by a long series of second-hand cover paintings imported from USA. In 1964, the US covers are almost totally replaced with paintings of Spanish artists like Noiquet and Longaron, most of them previously used on the Spanish paperback series Best Sellers del Oeste, published by Toray. The Spanish paintings are in their turn 1969 replaced with locally produced covers by Gino D’Achille, marketing the popular McAllister as a distinct subseries of Panther Books. Finally, the two Storm subseries Panther editions have locally produced cover paintings by Gino D’Achille and Carol Binch, respectively.

Original paintings can besides on many of the British editions be seen chiefly on the Croatian and Italian editions. The British original paintings by Gino D’Achille on the 1969-1970 Panther McAllister subseries were later used on the US editions and on many of the titles in the Danish McAllister series of books. This was one of the rare cases of US import of western paperbacks, including both texts and cover art (Nilsson 2019).

The paintings by Chris Achilleos used on the 1975-1977 Mayflower McAllister edition were seemingly not used on any foreign editions. David McAllister made the cover art for Hamlyn’s Joe Blade and McAllister series, and Chris Collingwood is the artist behind the cover paintings on the two 2nd edition Blade books. Whereas the earlier Norwegian editions had some locally produced cover art, the Stjerneserien covers represent a mix of paintings of Spanish and US origin plus many by the German artist Günther König. One can also find a few examples of manually copied British cover art on some of the earlier Norwegian books, like the Arena translation of Never give ground. The Swedish translation of Hang a man high is another example of a manually copied cover painting, and this painting by John Leone was first used in 1956 in USA on Pyramid Book #203, Lynch Law by Paul Evan. Also the Swedish translation of Hangrope for a gunman had a manually copied cover painting, and this painting by Victor Prezio was first used in 1959 on Pyramid Books #455 Holster law by Bradford Scott. Photographic cover art was used on the Swedish 1970-1972 McAllister series, as well as on the Finnish subset of titles in the Mustang series.

Short stories

The only western short story by Watts published in English is The return of McAllister in Western Magazine (UK) #2 1980. In Norway, on the other hand, about 40 translated McAllister short stories were published in Bladkompaniet’s magazine Western between 1972 and 1982. Selections of these stories were also published as seven paperbacks in the Stjernebok series: 553, 1974 Desperado, 582, 1975 McAllister’s likemann, 743, 1979 McAllister på krigsstien, 808, 1980 Ridder med revolver, 979 1982 Trøbbel i El Paso, 1035, 1983 Renegados!, and 1062, 1983 Tucson terror.
