Our thoughts are with the family of artist Ken Barr, who died in March. Ken painted the very first Commando cover Walk - Or Die! back in June 1961. Indeed he illustrated a further thirteen consecutive covers straight after. The majority of his 175 covers appeared over a prolific ten-year period until April 1971. After a few rare appearances in the mid-1990s, a decade after this, Ken contacted then editor Calum Laird to ask if he could contribute a new cover. Of course, we jumped at the chance and the result was Blood Red Battle (no 4138) published in September 2008
Our Thanks and respect to this huge talent, who played a pivotal part in Commando's 55-year history.
