Mods, please feel free to merge this into another thread, but the press are cottoning on to the end of the Dandy and I couldn't see where to put their comments.

Harry Mount (Daily Telegraph, 26 October, didn't see this elsewhere)

Quote:
Not only is the artwork wonderful; there's also something intensely moving about the unchanging identity of the cartoon characters through the decades.

75 facts about the Dandy. Although a few aren't true.
Quote:
19. The 1970s sci-fi boom led to the first sci-fi character, Captain Zapp.
That's the villain from Jack Silver.
Quote:
33. The Dandy fan club is called Desperate Dan Pie-Eater’s Club.
Clearly, they aren't aware of the more recent incarnation, which was named after Ollie Fliptrik.
Quote:
52. In 1964, the now traditional Dandy summer special was launched.
I guess they aren't aware that they stopped doing them a few years ago.
Quote:
54. In 2004, the Dandy was rebranded with skateboarding kid Jak as cover star.
The skateboarding kid was Ollie Fliptrik. Not the same character as the 2004 cover star.
Quote:
60. The mystery bellhop mascot appeared in 958 issues without ever saying a word.
He did speak, usually to preview the next installment of the prose stories.

Pretty mean of the Daily Mail to criticise Nigel's artwork. I'm sure Paul doesn't care how he looks - as long as he's in The Dandy!

Some wonderful artwork there, Nigel! :)
