BBC News - Commando comic printing moves from Suffolk to Germany
The Boxhead printers must be scratching their heads at all the "Achtung Spitfire!" And "Die you filthy Hun!" quotes.
Good for European bonding no doubt.
I didn't actually realise they still printed them.
Used to have a right scrap with my brothers to read them. Such tales of bravery led me to join the TA and drink lots of beer.
Should have read Starblazer instead, NASA may have been your true vocation.
Not with my bad back.
Should have said:
“What with these feet!”
Classic cultural reference.
Just got one of the Commando comics printed in Germany. Seems we lost the war.
I've just started collecting them via mailorder for my boys. They can't read yet, but I'm sure tales of a commando stuck behind enemy lines with only an apple corer and an entire SS battalion surrounding him will help them along nicely.
Sent from beyond the grave using the Force.
I used to get them years ago instead of pocket money.. you can get them in the works bookstore.. theres 10 in a hardbound book
