Biography/History

Maurice Bramley took over writing The Phantom Commando from creator John Dixon. Dixon was only able to write the first three issues before handing the responsibility over to Bramley.

Horwitz Publications released a second series of The Phantom Commando between the approximate dates of 1965-1966. The issues from the second series are numbered 13-16, and appear to be exact replicas of the same numbered issues appearing in the first series, except for the covers and advertising features.

Numbering Note Issues lack date designations.
