Commando Calendars

Looking at my Ian Kennedy calendar the other day made me start wondering about precisely how many Commando calendars there were out there for the collector...


Not published by DC Thomson (but produced under licence from them) this large calendar (it's about twice the size of the Ian Kennedy calendar, above) was the first Commando calendar to be produced. This was sold mainly in bargain bookshops 







There was also an official 'The art of Commando' calendar for 2007 but I can't find an image for it :(


By 2009 the licence for producing a calendar had changed hands - covers selection is by Calum Laird.




Then there was a good run of 3 years in a row when the calendar came out...







Then a few fallow years until 2018...




While I don't have all the Commando calendars above, here's a calendar that I REALLY wish I'd got at the time...2009 saw two DC Thomson calendars from 'Unique' (the Art of Commando is shown above) and this is the second one....
