Daggers Drawn! Illustrators Magazine Commando Special available for pre-order now

Illustrators Daggers Drawn! Special Edition CoverThis new illustrators Special Edition is for all those schoolboys that have refused steadfastly to grow up and master the art of reading serious works of literature. Do you recall Commando Comics, with those amazing covers and equally amazing interior art and stories?

Well, as regular readers of downthetubes already know, they’re still published by Dundee-based DC Thomson – and alongside your Commando Comics Calendar for 2020 or The Art of Ian Kennedy, Daggers Drawn! is an unmissable Commando-dedicated illustrators Special that’s just the thing for your Christmas stocking!

Edited by Peter Richardson, this terrific new Daggers Drawn! illustrators Special, on sale now, features some of the most mouth-watering Commando cover art and interiors and includes in-depth features on Ian Kennedy, Ken Barr, and the history of Commando; and a unique in-depth interview with legendary Commando artist Gordon Livingstone.

Also included are step by step insight from Commando artists on how they create their iconic art, plus tales from the Commando HQ and writers’ revelations.

We’ve been treated to a sneak peek of this Special, and it really is a stunning visual feast of both great art and fascinating features about Britain’s last surviving “pocket library” comic. You really, really don’t want to miss out on this one!

More like a book than a magazine, illustrators is the art quarterly devoted to the finest illustration art ever published. It guides you through the stories behind the artists and their art, with features written by some of the leading authorities on this important art form.

As well as building into an indispensable reference library, illustrators gives readers an insight into the creative process, from the initial idea to the image potentially seen by millions.

Truly fabulous artwork abounds in every issue, much of the art taken from scans of the original work.
