Killer Ship

Introduction by Calum Laird, Commando Editor...


1962 was the second year of Commando's history and they struck gold time after time. Writers like Eric Hebden used their full imagination to come up with classic characters and plots, just like here. Eric's son Alan has the same talent.

Cecil Rigby's inside artwork works very well here, with a strong line and skillful use of black for the night scenes. There's very little you can say about Ken Barr's cover art that hasn't been said before, but his capture of the speed of the killer E-boat really is something.

You can almost smell the salt and the diesel!
