Who Killed Cooper?

Issue Number: 5598

Squadron Leader ‘Flash’ Cooper was an excellent pilot, but he had one big failing — he was a glory hunter, and glory for him often meant danger for other pilots. So Flash made many enemies, and when he finally met a sticky end, the only question was… which one bumped him off?   Story: RA […]

Issue Number: 5594

“A friend in need is a friend indeed.” So the old saying goes. And man’s best friend is his dog, right? That’s what George Carter figured when he found Pooch —or rather when Pooch found George.

They were the long-range Catalina flying boats, painted dark grey and flown by men […]
