Unlike the reprints of Commando books (comics) by Carlton Books, such as Bandits at 12 o'clock and Battle of Britain - Scramble!, the printing in this volume from Prion Books is faint and patchy and the binding is poor.

Containing fewer stories than in the equivalent Commando collections (six vs. ten or twelve) you could argue there is a similar reduction in enjoyment, but that would be to quibble. These are six great pieces of escapist nostalgia, perfect for a passing a winter's day or evening.

Personally, as a child I preferred Commando to Picture Library - something in the artwork, a greater attention to detail on the aircraft perhaps - and it is the same today with this collection, but the pictures serve the plot and there are no complaints there. Indulge and enjoy.

The stories and arts are really the best.....especially Torpedo Alley - my childhood favourite AAPL comic - which was destroyed by termites.
