Commando 5588: Gold Collection - The Death Card

Evil returns and the dead just won’t say dead in the latest comic in Georgia Standen Battle’s horrific series, brought back from the grave by the master of the horror himself Vicente Alcazar and a frighteningly good cover by Neil Roberts!

Would you accept the cursed card? Or are you too superstitious? If you are, you wouldn’t fancy being handed the Ace of Spades — the death card — as the key to your future, especially when this particular card had meant death for two previous owners!

Issue 5588 “The Death Card”, is another “By Special Request!”, an issue handpicked by a reader for the Commando Halloween specials… A Commando so good – it just couldn’t say dead in the vaults! Don’t be cursed to miss it!

This Halloween Commando offering is sure to petrify readers! Historians mark the Dodecanese campaign as one of the last major German victories of World War Two. What the history books fail to mention, though, is that Allied and German forces weren’t the only things flying over that region! For something far older and deadlier stalked the skies above the Aegean, as Flight Lieutenant Pierce Sullivan was about to discover!

You’ll need a stony resolve to read Issue 5589 as Dominic Teague brings legends to life as gorgons attack!

What’s more, Issue 5589 features Graham Manley’s debut on Commando interiors and a Neil Roberts cover directly inspired by Ian Kennedy’s cover for No. 1478, “Target — Crete!”

The editorial team suggest you may want to read this Commando through a mirror – just in case it turns you to stone, readers!

There’s something spooky going on in Crandon Abbey! Strange figures, eerie sounds, and mysterious moving lights seen in the dead of night. It was enough to make even the bravest men tremble. But the spirits that haunted Crandon Abbey weren’t ordinary ghosts — these ghosts shot to kill and didn’t like nosy people poking around the grounds!

This classic Commando has crawled its way out of the crypt to bring horror and delight to readers once again! Featuring a spellbinding story by Bryan Perrett alongside eerie interior artwork from Llops and one of Ian Kennedy’s creepiest covers, well this Commando is too ghoulish to miss!
