Featuring very good war artwork from the popular British periodical Commando--cover art and interiors, with in-depth features on Ian Kennedy, Neil Roberts, Keith Burns, and Ken Barr. Interviews with its editor and writers, orgins and history. Unique in-depth interview with legendary Commando artist Gordon Livingstone; Step by step revelations from Commando artists on how they create their iconic art;  Tales from the Commando HQ and writers' revelations.

The art ranges from b&w comic book pages and panels, to pulp or pure illustration style covers and full color plates. There are air battles, desert tank fights, destroyers at sea, hand-to-hand combat. Mostly oriented to WWII, there is the occasional reference to WWI and other wars here.

Another Illustrators Special which have been very popular. A good deal of the artwork here is from original artwork; often they've juxtaposed the original painting with the published magazine cover.
