    Air Marshall - 10/10. But then again, I should score this as a fan of avaition and these comics. As a kid (I'm a big kid now) I used to read these comics and my Grandma used to buy them for me. Watch out for the hun in the sun!

    Right! Squadron Leader. Tally ho and all that. I've just re-discovered Commando comics. I first read these as a 10 year old in the mid-70s when I'd visit my English cousins in London. My dad was stationed in Germany at the time. Love the series then and so glad and suprised they are still being produced. Good stuff.
