Here's a rundown of the four issues of Commando that will be in the shops on Thursday 17th October, including one set in the present day!

5271: Home of Heroes: Faceless Heroes

Commando is pleased to introduce its newest cover artist, Tom Foster. His first Commando cover, Faceless Heroes, tackles eco-terrorists holding world leaders hostage in a country estate. But the skull-faced terrorists aren’t going to have it that simple as an elite masked team are on hand to take the bad guys down for good.

The entire bomber crew was interred inside a single other prisoner? Talk about cruel and unusual punishment!
