More Big Commando Books From Prion
15 August 2013 will see Prion Books release four new Commando books, each reprinting six stories from the long running war comic, and bring the number of Commando reprint books released by Prion in 2013 to eight.
With painted covers by the likes of Ian Kennedy and Jordi Penalva, Marching To Glory features British Army stories, The Deadly Sea features Royal Navy stories, Heroes Fly High! features Royal Air Force stories, and finally Rampaging Raiders! features stories of Commando unit missions. Each feature a new introduction by Commando editor Calum Laird.
Unlike the previous three batches of Commando books from Prion which were 208 page paperbacks with three stories each, these titles echo the IPC War, Battle and Air Ace Picture Library titles that were published by Prion in 2010 as they are 400 page softcovers each reprinting six stories. This is the first time that Prion has released Commando titles in this 6 story format.
There are more details of all Prion's Commando titles on the Prion website.
