1.0 out of 5 stars Commando goes corporate and greed is good.... 15 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback
I have looked forward to these new collections, a step up from the Commando mini-collections which are not as good given the smaller size and paper used but desirable nonetheless because of the content. However, guess what? All four of the collections issued this August 2013 are mere reprints of the first two Commando collections issued in 2005. Yes! All four books, each containing six stories, are mere reprints of 'The Dirty Dozen' and 'True Brit' collections. The only difference is the whiter paper, fewer pages in each (hence 4 books replacing two) and the paperback finish which means you will have creased spines unlike the good old flexi-civers which were far more preferable. So avoid unless you don't have or can't find the original 'The Dirty Dozen' and 'True Brit' collections at reasonable prices.

What is typical of the modern corporate mentality is the manner in which those cherished flexi-cover collections (which were priced at about 15 each full cover price)are now criticised in the introduction to each of the new books as being too big and too heavy despite being only twice as thick and almost the same weight as the each of the new collections even though they had twice as many stories, better covers and decent paper stock. The cover price is a rip-off unless you buy from Amazon and get the discounted price as otherwise it means that to get the same number of stories as in each of the the previous collections you would need to spend about 20 quid - 5 more.

The Commando war comics are absolutely worth it and I would recommend getting a subscription and if you can find any or all of the old flexi-cover collections, new or used, grab-em! They are really worth it. The recent mini collections which are the lower priced small paperback sized editions cost about 3 or 4 quid on Amazon are also worth it as there are a total of 36 stories in the twelve released so far. This latest collection of 4 are a cash-grab, pure and simple!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont waste your time, reprints 21 Aug 2013
By Dave
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered all these new titles only to discover when they arrived that they are just reprints of "True Brit and The Dirty Dozen", a complete rip off from both the publishers and Amazon who failed to make it clear when they announced them.

Just contains stories previously published in 'true Brit' and 'the dirty dozen'. Sent back in disgust. Why ? Just why did they do it ?

1.0 out of 5 stars Feeling Cheated 8 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whilst appreaciating the publication of what I thought was more of this wonderful series, I was terribly disappointed to find that this was merely a rehash of previously published material. I felt cheated to discover that all 4 books contained stories that had already been featured in "The Dirty Dozen" and "True Brit" anthologies.
There are thousands of Commando stories to choose from and surely the publishers could have used some of these rather than foisting this on an unsuspecting public. I don't remember seeing any mention of them being re-issues.

I don't feel that this book and its companion volumes can be recommended at all. If you alread have "The Dirty Dozen" and "True Brit" then don't bother with these.
