I got me the latest editions of DC Thomson’s long-running war-themed comic library Commando yesterday, and it seems changes are afoot…
As Lew Stringer notes on his Blimey! blog, from this month Commando adopts a four-pronged assault on the reader. That means each publication cycle there will be two reprints (the ‘Gold’ and ‘Silver’ Collections) plus two new stories, one under the regular strapline ‘For Action And Adventure’, the other under ‘The Home Of Heroes’, and focusing on British characters.
In addition it would appear that the backroom boffins have resolved the problem of recent years and come up with a binding process or new glue that lets the pages lie flat, instead of fanning out as they had previously.
Good work chaps!
