I got the latest batch of Commandos yesterday and I got to wondering, the reprints are for fans to fill in gaps in their collections. So why don't the editors give the original issue number alongside the original publishing date? It wouldn't take a lot of room and could be of invaluable help.

David, its over to yew.

Don't know if you know of http://britishcomics.20m.com/

It contains a very exhaustive list of Commando comics with (tiny) cover scans, issue numbers and reprint numbers.

Nice to see the original issue numbers now appearing in the credits of the reprint issues. Thanks for that. I always thought the reprints were two consecutive issues but apparently not so.

Just realised next July will be the 50th anniversary of Commando. What's planned. An item from Adrian Chiles on the One Show? (As long as its not Live from Studio 5 - Ian Wright - aarrgh!) "And now sumfink wot I used to read when I was a boy"

I was just thinking about this the other day. I would love to see a coffee-table style book about Commando with all relevant credits. Admittedly, there would be few people interested in it, but I, for one, would love a book like this.

Similar to The History of The Beano you mean? It would certainly sell, considering they already do those hardback Commando collections.

Exactly, it would be great to see who is responsible for all those stories. Plus, to have the whole thing in one place would be fantastic. And if they dedicated it to either George Low or Vic Whittle, that would be the icing on the cake for me.
