Commando Comic Art – The Show Goes On!

The exhibition of Commando cover art at the National Army Museum in London may have just finished, but fear not if you missed it. The Commando team have just informed us they’re working with another museum to put on a display of some of our other pieces.

“With so much art to show, one exhibition would never have been enough,” says editor Calum Laird.

This time it’s in Aberdeen, at the home of the Gordon Highlanders and DC Thomson hope it will be a shorter journey for many of fans to make a visit.

“The selection of artwork will be made in the next fortnight and is due to go on display in the second week of July,” Calum told downthetubes. “More details will follow as they come to hand.

“The curator (who is a massive Commando fan) is coming down to start his selection,” he adds. “I think it’ll be a different group than the ones at the NAM which would be all to the good because they barely scratched to surface!”


The founder of downthetubes, John works as a comics editor, writer, as Creative Consultant on the Dan Dare audio adventures for B7 Media, and on promotional work for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival. Working in British comics publishing for over 30 years, his credits include editor of titles such as Doctor Who Magazine, Star Trek Magazine and Babylon 5 Magazine. He also edited the comics anthology STRIP Magazine and edited several audio comics for ROK Comics. He has also edited several comic collections, including volumes of “Charley’s War and “Dan Dare”. He’s the writer of “Crucible”, a creator-owned project with 2000AD artist Smuzz, published on Tapastic; and “Death Duty” and “Skow Dogs” with Dave Hailwood for digital comic 100% Biodegradable.
