COMMANDO POCKET LIBRARY COMIC

 WAR STORIES IN PICTURES

The comic series, then going by the title Commando War Stories in Pictures, was launched by D.C. Thomson of DundeeScotland, in July 1961. It was an addition to the company’s already high-profile comics, such as The Beano and The Dandy. During its launch year two issues were published per month, but due to the comic’s increasing popularity this rose to four a month. Since 1971 there have been eight issues published per month. As of issue 539, certain stories have been reprinted. In September 1993 the comic title changed to Commando For Action and Adventure. The last issue to feature the former title was issue 2690, Password to Freedom, published in August. The first comic to feature the new title was issue 2691, A Race Against Time, published the following month.[3]

As well as the comics, annuals were also produced in 1989 and 1990, each containing seven new stories. The annuals were in full colour and illustrated in the style of the time, not in the original style of the comics.

At its peak in terms of sales, in one month during the 1970s, Commando’s comics circulation figures reached 750,000 according to George Low, who began working with Commando in 1963 and retired as editor in 2007.[4][5] Current circulation is 9,600 copies a fortnight per issue.[6] The current editor is Kirsten Murray.[7]

Landmark Issue no 4000 of Commando – ‘Aces All!’ – was released in April 2007.[4] In 2011, Commando Comics celebrated their 50th anniversary of publication, having begun in 1961.[8] They issued reprints of several of the early Commando stories from the 1960s.[9] Commando in 2011 re-printed (in reverse order) all of the first twelve issues from 1961.[10] Since 2007, half of Commando issues released have been re-prints of earlier stories but the remainder are new and original stories and artwork.[11] A book celebrating the best of Commando comics cover art was released in October 2011.[12] In 2011, new editions of Commando became available via digital download.[13]

In June 2013, it was announced that Commando Comics, whilst still owned by D C Thomson based in Dundee, would now be printed by GGP Media in Germany.[6][14][15]

Commando released their 5,000th issue, ‘Zero Hour,’ in March 2017. [16]
