Terror on World War Two’s Eastern Front! All-new Commandos out this week

Terror on World War Two’s Eastern Front! All-new Commandos out this week

Commando Issues 5307 – 5310From the desert dunes to Soviet snow, with a shortcut through the Ardennes! Brand-new Commando from DC Thomson Media, Issues 5307 – 5310,  are on sale this week in good newsagents and via digital platforms.

There’s a great mix of both old and new stories with this release, with two classic stories re-presented by CG Walker with art by the brilliant Gordon C Livingstone, alongside two new tales, both set during World War Two. Jason Cobley’s script, with art by Morhain & Defo, sounds positively creepy!

It’s all fun and games in the desert of North Africa for an odd trio in “Stealing Stukas”. Andrew Knighton’s story throws an RAF Intelligence officer with a chip on his shoulder, a posh RAF pilot, and a Luftwaffe pilot who’s also an artist, all into the same melting pot! Their mission: to capture and return with a Junkers 87 for the boffins at HQ to dissect.

But when you’re working with an enemy pilot in the scorching desert, without authorisation… well, what could go wrong?

The Nazis are up to their old tricks in the Ardennes in CG Walker’s ‘Enemy in Disguise’! Kitted up in British and American uniforms, with American aircraft to boot — their goal is to sow confusion and mistrust between the allies and to cause some mayhem in the process.

But the Germans and their nefarious plan hadn’t counted on Captain John Dixon’s dislike of Americans, along with a little help from a mysterious Cornishman called Longstraw and his pet crow!

Story: Jason Cobley | Art: Morhain & Defo | Cover: Neil Roberts

For the German soldiers advancing towards Stalingrad, they thought the cold and the biting hunger were the only things they had to worry about. But trapped in the howling blizzard, they felt as if they were being hunted, picked off one by one — the only clue to their missing comrades’ whereabouts, a patch of red snow and trail of bloody paw prints…

They were not alone in the dark wasteland, and their survival depended on their wits…

Originally Commando No. 1505 (1981)

Following on from “Enemy in Disguise”, “The Face of Courage” is the second Commando reprint release this week from the powerhouses of CG Walker, Gordon C Livingstone, and Ian Kennedy. And what a classic Commando the unshakeable trio produced!

Set in North Africa, the yarn involves an archaeologist, some British soldiers and a young tribesman teaming up to quell a big Nazi push…
