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.
