Thu 01 Sep 2011

By former Commando editor, George Low!

Coinciding with the launch of "Draw Your Weapons: The Art of Commando", Carlton Books are publishing an exciting new range of Commando books.

Leading the charge is "50 Years: A Home For Heroes", a blockbuster volume written by George Low, the long-serving Editor of Commando from 1988-2007 - with a foreword by Commando fan (oh, and presenter of a little thing on television called "Top Gear"), James May!


Inside you'll find:

● Six of the best Commando comics ever - with commentaries!

● Fifty of the most iconic full-colour cover artworks!

● Profiles of top strip and cover artists!

● In-depth intel on high-ranking Commando authors!

● The inside story of Commando comic ops at Commando HQ at DC Thomson!

● A complete Commando comic title listing!

● And more!

But don't just take our word for it - take a brief sneak peek at what's waiting in ambush!

Published in hardback in October 2011 for £19.99, this is surely the mother of all battle books!
