Pete Sullivan is a Royal Navy diver with a grudge - he hates Norwegians*. Which could turn out to be a problem because he's been teamed up with Red Larssen who is - you guessed it - a Norwegian. Together they are sent on a s e c r e t mission to Norway to blow up some Jerry transport ships, and that's when it all goes wrong...

Published in 1974; story by Eric Hebden, cover art by Ian Kennedy, interior artwork by Cam Kennedy.

Another little gem from the "Commando" stable, a publisher that's been bringing us tales of derring-do from the Second World War since - ohh... back when I was in short trousers. The fayre is standard stuff, chisel-jawed Tommies socking it to the Bosche by land, air and sea. You'll never find a Commando comic put forward for a Man-Booker; but that doesn't matter, it's all good fun.

"From Out Of The Sea" also includes another favourite theme of the Commando comic; the main characters start off at each others' throats for various reasons, but their disagreements and quarrels are soon resolved and they soon become fast friends in the face of the greater enemy.

Cam Kennedy's artwork is great. A more naturalistic style than others; dark, heavy shading and the characters have well-realised and expressive faces. I've uploaded an image from the comic to give you an idea.

The Kindle edition is fairly well reproduced from the ink-and-paper original and it looks good on my 7" and 10" Tablets - the loading is quick and page turns are quite responsive. I don't bother trying to read comics on my 1st generation Kindle anymore - it's just too slow.

* Well, I suppose someone has to.

Excellent story, beautiful drawings. Really took me back to childhood holidays spent in a caravan in Filey: rainy days, steamed up windows, the smell of Calor gas, and Commando comics for company.

A tale of misplaced hatred,of heroism. Two men face a common enemy whilst hating each other,but find redemption and friendship.
