Kuno an interesting one
thanks for posting
I used to read Battle, Commando, Warlord and
all these as a kid. It sparked my interest in WW2.
Recently Garth Ennis has done a series called Battlefields
Which are worth checking out.
From a colleague in the RAF I have been recommended a WW II comic character by the name of Percy Prew. These comics are supposed to be very educational and to some extent, still valid.
Have searched for the name to no avail. Maybe got the spelling wrong. Anybody any clue ?
latest Commando VE Day editions
The Story Of Pilot Officer Prune
Thank you very much!!
I did misspell a bit, didn't I... ?

WHOAH!! Look at the size of that E-Boat!!!! Is that a Flower Class Corvette???
another interesting one me thinks
sample latest release
I'm a huge fan of Garth Ennis's war comics, Battlefields is a good series & so is his revamp of 'Enemy Ace' Hans Von Hammer flying a ME-109 and later a 262 (both painted red). Fantastic stuff.
He also redid Battler Briton another great title brought into the 21st century. I get the impression Garth Ennis is a closet history buff who doubles as a comic book writer.

I used to love Warlord!
That Panzerknacker was interesting, and no doubt an inspiration for a character in the bonus mission of the video game Medal Of Honor: Underground, see here: Medal of Honor Week: (Almost) Everything Else You Wanted To Know But Were Afraid To Ask, Feature Story from GamePro
trouble is the blooming Commado comics are still going and I still get them
I remember many years ago,seeing a MFO box half full of commando comics being burnt
