The Commando website is continuing their on-line adaptation of Commando issue 221 Wall of Death. This was first published on 26 July 1966 and was then priced at one shilling. The electronic version is free and is currently up to Part Five. The story, which had a working title of Danger Their Companion, was written by Redbridge and illustrated by Cortez.
Part One of Wall Of Death begins here and each part links to the next one.
The site also now has twelve Commando covers available to download as wallpapers including this excellent World War One Albatros D biplane by Jose Maria Jorge which was used as the cover for issue 3538, Rogue Ace, in 2002. The wallpapers are available here.
D C Thomson continue to publish eight issues of Commando a month, four on the second Wednesday of the month and four on the last Wednesday. Four of the titles are reprints and four are brand new and all now feature credits for the writer, interior and cover artists and, if a reprint, when the original version was published. Each issue costs £1.25 and they should be stocked by WH Smith, Easons, McColls and Spar.
