So, I started a blog around mid-July with no clear purpose, but as things have turned out it's mostly, in this order:

-Comics
-Oldish picture books
-Cartoons
-Toys
-Babbling musings.

The "comics" bit should be of most interest around these parts, maybe. I'm enjoying it anyway!

The latest thing is a scan of an Autoteach story from the 1979 Topper Book.

Interesting Dandy post, I have that 60th birthday issue. That picture of Dan watching the Dandy Office getting demolished would be perfect for the news about it's closure, why didn't anyone else use that panel?

Thank you!

I was a bit surprised myself about being the first (that I know of) to use that panel too. Your advice regarding Danny & Katy is currently being acted on.

Thank you very much also :)

Been thinking about doing one for years, didn't realise how easy/fun it would turn out to be!
