“Classic battle action from Commando Comics – 63-page illustrated comic stories of men at war.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Golly but this takes me back. I used to while away long, wet Sunday afternoons in Glasgow reading my Grampa’s Commando comics (being Glasgow, most afternoons seemed to be wet… most mornings too), and much pleasure did I get from them.
It’s not literature, but it’s good innocent fun, where the heroes are square-jawed and clear-eyed and always prevail over The Hun, The Jap or The Eyetie.
Saved From The Sea is a fine little tale of an RAF air-sea rescue unit, flying a cumbersome Supermarine Walrus flying-boat and plucking distressed airmen and sailors from the water under the very guns of the enemy. This story was first published by Commando in 1987, with artwork by the renowned Jose Maria Jorge and story by Monty Montague. The draughtsmanlike drawings are great, and Jorge really knew his aeroplanes.
