Knife for a Nazi
- Fri 06 Jul 2012
Calum Laird, Commando Editor, introduces...
A new boy having to prove his worth to an established group, and
in particular its leader, is a well-used theme in all fiction,
although in just issue 16 it was new to Commando comics. Here,
author Elliot uses that set-up to bring an extra tension to an
action-packed Commando special mission, and in so doing makes it
more than just a war story.
Mind you, he had to do something a little bit special to live up
to the promise of Ken Barr's super-menacing cover. Can you feel how
sharp that knife is?
The black-and-whites from Salmeron have wonderful British-ness -
the Commando CO's 'tache in particular. This Spanish artist served
Commando for many years, and this example shows you why.
