I just realised that the cover of UK comic book Commando issue 4692 has a drawing by my all time favorite artist Chako. This issue, titled “The Executioners”, was originally printed in book 118 in May 1964 and first saw re-print in book 647 in May 1972. In those days Chako was a highly visible artist, but very little was known about the man. I own hundreds and hundreds of comic books with his artwork but I only found out about his name a few years ago. And he is still a bit of a mystery. Books should have been written about this guy.

In any case, I never knew he worked for Commando, so this is fab.
