COMMANDO 2003

(POCKET HOMEPAGE)

All the Commando titles for 2003 (3587 – 3682)

 

The price of Commando increased to £1 in October.

 

Mike White has been commissioned to do covers for Commando in the past, but the end of the year saw Mike do his first interior art for Commando with issue 3679 ‘Frontier Fury’. Mike also did the cover for this issue.

Also look out for signatures on the covers by artists Correa, Jose Maria Jorge, & Carlos Pino.

 

Regular cover artists this year were:

Benet, J. Bevan, Nicholas Forder, Keith Page, John Ridgway. Also Correa, Jose Maria Jorge, Ian Kennedy, Carlos Pino.

 

Reprint cover artists:

J. Bevan, Ian Kennedy.

 

Favourite Covers: 3598 ‘Super Soldiers’ Carlos Pino, 3605 ‘Occupation!’ Keith Page & 3662 ‘World’s End?’ John Ridgway.

 

There was also, what must be one of the worst covers I’ve seen for Commando, with issue 3630 ‘Descend into Danger’, with artwork by Nicholas Forder. I don’t know if it was me, but there seemed to be too much green, plus the fact, I’m not very fond of spiders.

 

The first two issues each month are reprints the original issue numbers are in brackets.
