Brand new Commando issues 5403-5406 are out this Thursday! Mysteries abound in this set — with strange desert doings, a coin conundrum in France, a suspicious Captain in a glider, and a Falkland’s War enigma in four parts!
5403: Home of Heroes: A Fool’s Errand
Heath Ackley lays out a tale to tantalise in Issue 5403 ‘A Fool’s Errand’ when the inexperienced Lieutenant Stanley Harvey, along with scruffy Privates Kenny Cheam and Sidney Kerr, stumble on something unexpected in the Egyptian desert! For this trio, what started as a fool’s errand was about to turn into their most important mission of the desert war!

5404: Gold Collection: Sky Raiders
A classic Commando coming up! Only the bravest of the brave and the toughest of the tough served in the Glider Pilot Regiment. Why then, was Captain Paul Preston included as one of this band of heroes? Hadn’t he once saved his own skin by leaving his men to die, surrounded by Nazis?
Well, one of his new men meant to find out the truth — the whole truth to this mystery — whether Preston wanted him to or not!

Commando writer Andrew Knighton takes inspiration from the legendary Japanese film ‘Rashomon’ where the same story is told by different people – with very different perspectives! Only this Commando isn’t set in Japan — rather on Mount Tumbledown during the Falkland’s war!

5406: Silver Collection: Heart of a Lion
Bravery was all over France during World War Two. One Frenchman in particular, named Albert Toussaint, had it in spades! But his courage did not come from any inner strength, rather it was all thanks to a very special but mysterious coin he kept in his pocket! Like in most unusual Commandos, all is not what it seems with Albert’s coin — something British Private Ray Coliston was going to find out!
