This week's Commando releases

Here's the cover previews of the four issues of D.C.Thomson's Commando that will be in shops from tomorrow. Each 64 page comic is priced £1.35.

Details of the stories as supplied by editor Calum Laird:


In early 1942 Lieutenant Rory Granger and his Commando squad were chosen for a daring mission to destroy a vital German radar station in the far north of Norway.
However, the plan went awry. Rory and his men found themselves up against a ruthless enemy in the bitterly cold wastes of Russia, fighting just to stay alive!

A touch of Dan Dare on the radar Console?

Commando 4284:

Reeling back from the German onslaught in May 1940, Private Tom Dawson and his mate, Harry Greene, saw their company decimated in a terrifying Stuka attack. They teamed up with other stragglers — including a very unconventional Signals officer — determined to join the mass evacuation at Dunkirk. But to get to those beaches they’d have to make a perilous journey through occupied Belgium.
Would they all survive the RACE TO FREEDOM?

Commando 4285: MERCENARIES!

Thirsting for excitement and adventure, paratrooper Jack Nash had seized the chance to become a mercenary — a hired soldier in someone else’s war — with the promise of action and a hefty pay-packet.
Well, Jack got plenty of action — more than most men could handle. As for the money, that might just be a different story…

Commando 4286: WELCOME TO THE WAR!

They kept telling Andy Webster that he was doing a great job, beavering away behind the scenes as the war raged all over Europe. But that wasn’t good enough for Andy. He wanted to be in the front line, right in the thickest of the action.
Well, his dearest wish would come true far sooner then he thought, but there was one big snag. It didn’t look as if he would survive to enjoy the glory!

Calum also provided news of Commando's new on-sale dates:
"The next batch will be out in two weeks (instead of the usual three at this time of year) as we have had our sale dates brought forward. We’ll then be every fortnight until July. This means Commando goes on sale the first Thursday of every month rather than the second."
