You know it's Xmas when the distribution of Commando through Smiths goes haywire:
2 copies of Sands, nothing of the other three.
Lots of Ramsey's Raiders. Maybe RR is a follow up to the success (?) of Rebellion's recent Sniper series? Which was really a games tie-in, rather than a war comic as such.
Looking forward to the sequel: Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Raiders. The shouting, the swearing, the violence. And that's just mashing the potatoes.
