The Commando: For Action and Adventure wiki last edited by pikahyper on 08/25/16 05:23PM View full history

Commando is Britain’s longest serving war comic, publishing stories of action and adventure since 1961. These stories, with their mixture of excitement, danger and courage under fire, and the dynamic artwork that accompanies them, have won Commando a loyal readership over the decades.

On land, at sea, and in the air, Commando’s stories cover every corner of the globe and are set throughout world history, the epic tales of bravery in battle making Commando Comics the Home of Heroes!

British company D.C. Thomson & Co. began publishing Commando: War Stories in 1961 mostly focusing, as the name hints, on war stories from WWII and WWI respectively. This was extended to other wars and conflicts later on and since 1993, beginning with issue #2691, the series was called Commando: For Action and Adventure.

Currently D.C. Thomson publishes four issues a fortnight (eight issues a month).

The Gold Collection and Silver Collection contains reprints of older stories

Home of Heroes focuses on new stories about the British Arm Forces

Action and Adventure focuses on new stories set around the world
