Commando is very, very, very happy to introduce the newest artist to join the squadron, Keith Burns! And what a way to start – with the cover for ‘American Avenger’!

“There’s so much energy and atmosphere packed into the cover of Ferg Handley’s Pacific war story, we could stare at it for hours,” a spokesperson commented. “Burns is well know for his wealth of experience and prowess painting aviation covers, so when the Commando Team met him at Military Odyssey in 2018, they couldn’t wait to have Burns join to Commando ranks!”

Along came a spider in this Commando issue! We hope you aren’t afraid of creepy crawlies as there’s a big hairy boy on Alan Burrows eye-bulging cover!

What’s more, CG Walker’s plot catches you in its web, and weaves a mystery which traps the reader like a fly! But we’ll keep the story secret for now – we wouldn’t want to string anyone along!
