From writer and ex-serviceman Russell Sheath comes a modern-era Commando with classic themes. Daggers Drawn follows a group of Royal Marine Commandos on a routine training exercise in the Scottish Highlands that goes horribly wrong when they interrupt an illegal arms-deal.

Originally Commando No. 161 (1965)

In Captain Eric Hebden’s classic Commando from the 1960s, British dispatch rider Sergeant George Ward was roaring back to his base in France after a routine delivery job when the road swung into a dark forest — and what happened when George raced into that wood was to give him nightmares for months to come!

Story: Ferg Handley | Art: Carlos Pino | Cover: Ian Kennedy

Ramsey’s Raiders return yet again – this time for a less than above board mission in a SS-infested village in France. The elite Special Raiding Force are out to rescue the trapped SOE agent, who also happens to be a relative of their commanding officer — and to make matters worse, their secret rescue mission is hot off the back of D-Day and the Allies are ready to blast the Nazis out!

Commando 5366: Silver Collection: The Secret Heroes

Commando 5366: Silver Collection: The Secret Heroes
Story: Bill Fear | Ar: |Ruiz | Cover: Ian Kennedy
Originally Commando No. 1569 (1981)

Family loyalties are often stronger than any other ties in Commando. That’s why, in The Secret Heroes, Olaf Milang couldn’t believe what he was told by the Resistance when he returned home to his native Norway on a secret mission.

Was his own brother really acting the traitor and wearing the uniform of the Nazi-controlled police?! Find out is this fantastic silver-era reprint!
