In September 1993 the comic title changed to Commando For Action and Adventure.
The last issue to feature the former title was issue 2690, Password to Freedom, published in August.
Despite the emphasis placed on action & adventure, the creators of Commando have placed great importance on achieving historical and technical accuracy as much as possible.
The second editor of Commando, Ian Forbes, served in the British Army during the Second World War.
A handful of issues have also dealt with fictional conflicts such as civil wars fought between imaginary states and there have even been a small number of Western & Science Fiction stories released by Commando.In July 2011, Carlton Books Ltd began releasing smaller, 'pocket-sized' collections of Commando Comics edited by Calum Laird, each edition featuring three stories published in the original size, a similar format to the original 'Holiday Specials' released by Battle & Air Ace Picture Libraries.In August 2013, Prion (Carlton) Books released collections of Commandoes that each featured six stories, published in the original size.It's noted for its distinctive 7 × 5½ inch, 68 page format that became a standard for these kinds of stories.
"Commando" has remained more popular than many other British war comics, and some would say British comics in general, because of its character based stories and detailed black and white artwork, with only the covers in colour.
In 2005, Carlton Books Ltd released an anthology of twelve Commando stories selected by George Low, who has edited the series since 1963. Containing 12 issues: Guns on the Peak, The Fighting Few, Bright Blade of Courage, The Haunted Jungle, Tiger in the Tail, The Specialists, VLR-Very Long Range, The Mighty Midget, Flak Fever, Fight or Die! (This book has been also published in two other editions- one in 2009 with the same cover-art and same title- 'True Grit' -but with 10 of the above 12 stories, and the other in 2007 with all 12 stories but with different cover-art and title-'The 12 Toughest Commando Stories Ever').
