Yes, I think I said I got confirmation that the subscription edition of the Christmas issue would continue to include the retail cover mounts. Mine arrived today.

Keep a look out for what maybe the most heavy handed bit of foreshadowing in a comic ever, in the Christmas Dennis. :)
I know this wasn't what you meant, but the line about freak localised weather conditions was better than intended, considering that there really are freak weather conditions this week! :lol:

Good to see Stan McMurtry still producing great work! Always liked his stuff in Smash!

I'd never associated Mac with Stan McMurty the comic artist even though I knew Mac's full name. Prints are £55 so I won't bother.

Ouch! That's a bit steep. Although you did sell that UNCLE comic for a tidy sum.... :D

His style has changed since the sixties, although in the comics he was 'ghosting' Leo Baxendale to a certain extent.

Graham Allen is the other Wham/Smash/Pow regular who's still active as a cartoonist of course.

Ha, nice Dandy reference there, an RIP tag on a picture of Desperate Dan.

Of course I can't imagine The Beano even referencing Charlie Hebdo - terrorist attacks are too dark a subject for the target audience.

In other news, the Beano website is down. Someone screwed up the DocumentElement coding.

^Dan wouldn't surprise me if he showed up eventually, but they don't really have a reason to bring back Korky. If you want a funny animal who can take on a variety of jobs, then you use Biffo. That really only leaves fishing and mice catching stories. Several other Dandy characters will never join the Beano for similar reasons - Dinah Mo and Beryl the Peril are both too similar to Minnie the Minx (I always found it odd that the two were in The Dandy together); Winker Watson is basically Roger the Dodger at boarding school; Cuddles and Dimples are essentially male versions of Bea the Mini-Menace and Ivy the Terrible (even sharing Bea's artist for the last decade), though they do predate the girls; Owen Goal and Ball Boy are completely interchangeable.

I only mentioned Korky as he is prob the most associated character with the dandy after desperate dan as those 2 were always the main cover stars on the weeklies & annuals.

I was thinking about Graham Allen recently. His sports cartoons haven't appeared in the Daily Express for a few months so I wondered where he was plying his trade now?

He was born in 1940, so he'll be 75 this year. Maybe he retired?

There was a small piece in today's Daily Mirror about Dennis and the Bash Street Kids promoting healthy eating in this week's issue. Don't know how Fatty will cope with that.
