Brand new Commando issues #5151-5154 are out soon! Blow up a fuel dump inside a
volcano, battle an Italian ace pilot over the desert, land your plane on an aircraft carrier in Vietnam, and meet the Red Devil of Stalingrad!
5151: Home of Heroes: Fuelled by Fury!
What do a Lieutenant in the British Army, an East End criminal, a champion athlete, an
Italian partisan, and an aged archaeologist all have in common?
They’re all on a mission to destroy the biggest Nazi fuel dump in the Mediterranean – which just happens to be inside a dormant volcano!
Pairing the quick-fire wit of Iain McLaughlin’s writing with the stylistic expressions of Carlos Pino’s artwork, ‘Fuelled by Fury!’ is just as explosive as its cover!
5152: Gold Collection: Duel of Aces
Somewhere in a barren range of hills in the desert, two pilots had just been shot down. One was British, the other Italian. Both were aces, two of the finest fliers ever to grace the skies of North Africa.
Each was determined to get the other. Many times, they had duelled in the air. And now, on the ground, the fight was still going on!
Zoning in on flyboy superstitions, pilot Ray Preston’s Marlet is distinguished by the Eye of Horus on its side, marking him out in Amador’s dogfight filled interiors!
Originally Commando No. 554 (May 1971).
5153: Action and Adventure: The Red Devil
Hiding in the thick snow, the Red Devil is watching.
In the battle-torn, bomb‑shelled carcass of Stalingrad, she stalks her prey.
Her sights aimed and her finger taut, she pulls the trigger…
Specially selected for the cover, Graeme Neil Reid’s exhilarating art shows our hellish heroine in a blood red light, capturing her plight for the Motherland as well as her deadly shot.
5154: Silver Collection: Carrier Pilot
For some jet pilots, take‑offs and landings on an aircraft carrier were a tad frightening to
say the least.
It was like that for rookie Garry Carter, operating off the coast of Vietnam, and it didn’t help that superior types like senator’s son, Scott Bradey, boasted that he found it all very easy.But once up there in the danger-filled skies, thundering towards a target in his bombed‑up A7 Corsair, Garry soon proved himself a force to be reckoned with!
This issue is marked by the rare occurrence of an Ian Kennedy Vietnam cover, offering our favourite aircraft artist the opportunity to lend his hand to the sleek shape of an A7 Corsair!
Originally Commando No. 2842 (March 1995).
