I can certainly see that issue selling a lot more than the 7000ish it's been selling, so that was a good idea.

£5.49!?! Well, it is supposed to include all of issue 1, despite that already being reprinted twice this year. Won't be surprised if the standard comic's page count is more than the normal 36 pages as well.

You mean the final dandy isn't going to say "Great news inside, chums!"?

Let's hope not that is the most depressing line ever due to what it stands for.

Yeah... in this case, though, the "great news" would be that the Dandy continues online (like I said before though, it could be a problem if you can't read it on a PC) and that Bananaman can still be seen in print in the Beano (they've been actively advertising him as a Beano character, see Nigel Parkinson's blog for photographic evidence of that). But still, there is the bad news that the print comic is ending. Of course if readers paid attention to the subscriptions advert, or the news, they'll already know.

Such a shame - these last weeks of the Dandy are marvellous.

The current issue with Bananaman on the cover says above the logo "75 glorious years! It can only be... THE DANDY" with a signpost planted in a smelly sock
"ONLY
5
ISSUES
TO GO".

Because we couldn't be certain of the answer. That cover confirmed it.

I'm guessing the next Christmas issue will be one of the first digital only Dandy's Bri.

Turns out the final print issue doubles up as a Christmas one.

I don't own an iPad either, so if it's not readable online like the Golden Ticket Winners Subscription of The Beano is, then I won't be able to continue reading the Dandy either. I wish they'd hurry up and reveal their plans.
