Commando 5615-5618

Up and at 'em! Commando issues 5615-5618 are out today, Thursday 2nd February, 2023!

5615: Crossed Swords

William Kidd felt like a pirate with crossed cutlasses marked on his Sopwith Camel. During World War One, he shot down the ace German fighter with the broadsword on his plane... and then did the same to his son in the Spanish Civil War! Now a new war was on the horizon and the Cutlass and the Broadsword were destined to cross blades again!
This Commando issue from writer Suresh features not just World War Two, but spans World War One and the Spanish Civil War as a feud between one man and a whole family chases him across the continent and time itself! With outstanding art from Alberto Saichann and now veteran Neil Roberts — you won’t want to miss this!

5616: In for the Kill

The young pilot officer could hardly believe his ears. But there was no mistaking the grim seriousness on the face of the Air Commadore, no question that he meant exactly what he had said...“I want you to go over to France and kill my son.”

A classic Commando gets its first reprint since 1975! Featuring the amazing artwork of the two legendary artists, Gordon C Livingstone and Ian Kennedy, with a superb story by Gentry, well, what’s not to like?!

5617: Ghost Run

It should have been a normal run for John Yateley and Jim Weaver, delivering much-needed supplies to the front line. But when an eerie sight appeared on a hilltop and the pair noticed it was the ghost of a tank from the wrong war... well, things were about to get very weird indeed!

This wacky, supernatural tale from the mind of Heath Ackley is brought to life by Jaume Forns! And that’s not even mentioning the cover by Neil Roberts which is a homage to Ian Kennedy’s cover for #1511 ‘Man of Mystery’!

5618: Tiger, Tiger!

When young Horace Harper was at school the newspapers had headlines about him... ‘Boy Defeats Tiger!’, ‘Schoolboy’s Amazing Courage!’ and so on. It was only a few years later that Horace had his courage tested again, by another tiger. But this time it had a capital ‘T’ — the dreaded Tiger Mark VI tank!

There’s a tiger in the tale in Commando Issue #5618! You’ll really want to get your claws into this roar-some story by CG Walker. With wild interior artwork by Carrion and Ian Kennedy — this issue is grrrreat!
