Supporting Commando

Posted: July 12, 2018 in Comics, Cool stuff, General

Longstanding followers of this blog will note a slight change today as I present the new issues of Commando in a new way. I basically still showcase all four issues but highlight one (my pick, depending on what cover I like the most of the batch). The old style of showcasing the new issues (going back to 2012) is now a thing of the past and I have removed all those posts up until a couple of weeks ago as part of the reshaping of this blog that went down recently. There are still a bunch of Commando covers on display in the archives though as I have highlighted certain issues over the years. However, what I did with todays batch is the future, and that is how I will continue to support Commando from now on.

Long may it reign.

The Reprieve

Posted: July 8, 2018 in Comics, General

Well I read “The Reprieve” (Euro Comics, 2018) by French artist Jean-Pierre Gibrat last night, the follow up to “Flight Of The Raven” that I have blogged about earlier. In this one, a young man (Julien) escapes from a German prisoner transport and later he finds out that the train he was on has been bombed and that he is assumed to be dead. So nobody is hunting him but he still needs to hide out for the duration of the war and he is assisted in this by a few brave souls in his home village on the countryside. One of the people that is there for him is Cécile, sister to Jeanne that we got to know in the last album. Quite a memorable story. 130 pages.

Football season

Got this in the mail the other day, 91:an (issue) 14 2018. I have always enjoyed this comic. The covers are always good and up to date. This cover art by Nils Egerbrandt is obviously in tune with what is going on out there right now.
