New Commando Comics hit the parade ground

Commando 5355 - 5358

Action-packed issues of DC Thomson Media’s Commando (Numbers 5355 – 5358) are available now, in all good newsagents and as digital editions.

On offer: Crusader tanks in North Africa, a Luftwaffe Judas in a Junkers 88, a coward with a twenty-five pounder gun, and paratroopers versus a Panzer in Algeria!

There was something wrong with Bruno Neumann — something his nemesis Matthias Schenk couldn’t put his finger on. No matter how easy the shot was, or how neatly his ducks were in a row, Bruno couldn’t hit anything — not one single Allied aircraft. Even his ironic nickname “Bullseye Bruno” did nothing to stir the Jerry airman into finding his target and shooting it down.

Fool me once, thought Schenk, fool me twice, but fool me three times and I smell a rat — or worse a TRAITOR!

“NO GUTS!” That’s what they said about young Harry Bishop when he froze in action. And if that wasn’t bad enough, to add insult to injury, Bishop was then demoted from being in charge of his own twenty-five pounder crew to being a driver in another crew!

But don’t give him the white feather yet, because when Bishop’s back is against the wall you’ll soon see this coward has bite!

Commando 5357 - Action and Adventure: Raging Metal

Kindle and ComiXology edition available here from AmazonUK (Affiliate Link)

Written by Commando’s resident Aussie writer, Brent Towns, “Raging Metal” is a brilliant romp for fans of Desert War issues. Towns creates tension under the hot rays of the burning sun between two Aussie Sergeants, Bob Andrews and Simon Meredith.

A misunderstanding in the heat of a battle soon leads to Bob getting hot under the collar — and inside a boiling tank it’s hard for tempers to cool off!

Commando 5358 - Silver Collection: Hold the Bridge!

It’s a race against time in this Silver era reprint, as Captain Robert Sutton and his men parachute into enemy‑held territory in Algeria to destroy a Nazi-held bridge!

Written by the Commando team in the 1980s, with a cover by British comic artist legend Ian Kennedy, this isn’t one to miss!
