Commando... in colour!

D.C. Thomson are publishing a Ramsey's Raiders graphic novel, collecting two of the stories that originally ran in Commando into one book, - and this time it's in full colour.

The press release (below) doesn't credit the colourist or letterer, but thanks to the research by John Freeman on his Down the Tubes site they can be identified as Phillip Vaughan (colourist) and Robin Jones (letterer). 


THEY’RE BACK! And this time… in FULL COLOUR!

It’s the Raiders as you’ve never seen them before! Captain Jimmy Ramsey’s team of maverick misfits are fully loaded, fully coloured, and ready to rumble in their first-ever graphic novel!

The graphic novel brings together the first two Raiders issues: #3854 ‘Ramsey’s Raiders’ and #3861 ‘The Raiders Return!’ reprinted with a colourful twist! The 136-page collection includes a foreword from Ramsey’s co-creator and writer, Ferg Handley, alongside the classic Ian Kennedy covers and Keith Page’s original interior comic artwork — colourised!

The Ramsey’s Raider’s graphic novel is available buy from WHSmiths, Amazon and DC Thomson’s shop for £14.99 from the end of November. You can also preorder a copy from DC Thomson’s website here right now!

Commando is also continuing the Raiders series in its on-going comics, with a brand new Ramsey’s comic set to come out January, 2019!
