Re: The Final Dandy

I still haven't received my copy :( Unless my mum's taken it into hiding until Christmas! One more week to find out.

Re: The Final Dandy

Couldn't find it anywhere round here, some shelves had small bare spots next to The Beano where I presume it would have been. I've decided to treat myself to the the signed Art & History Book + Last Issue deal from the website :D

Re: Has anyone got an iPad?

Been a while since I posted on here.
I got one today - best present ever, methinks! I heard a while ago DCT are making an iPad subscription for Commando.

Re: 2010 Annual

Haven't seen it yet as I'm in Ireland. Anything worth mentioning that could be of interest to people who haven't seen it?
And if anyone sees the new D&G annual, do the drawings match the new style and cover, or are NP and BA doing their usual style?

Re: New look Ball Boy unveiled

TBH I like the new look, but that looks a lot more like Barrie Appleby to me.

Re: New look Ball Boy unveiled

Well, the artist was revealed in response to "Moonerz" (Jordan Mooney) as...Dave Eastbury! That was unexpected.

Re: The 2010 Annual Covers!

Looking at the picture below, has the Dennis annual moved towards a Pedigree-type spine? I always liked the DCT ones.

Re: Comic `Ads` on the Telly!

I'm sure the Beano and Dandy used to advertise free gifts on the TV about 15-20 years ago. The Dandy one had Desperate Dan as an American Football player. I can remember this one :) Must have been from around 2000, I'd say. Also they used to advertise annuals. The last one I saw was 2005, for 2006....

Re: Favourite/Least favourite Beano strips

Re: Ewan Kerr sacked

The title sent a shiver through my whole body!
BeanoMax is my favourite comic at the moment - who will replace him? They'd better not make it worse - or cancel it.

Re: Beano Videos and DVDs

I'd also like to see a sequel to Beanotown Racing, or even a brand new game - a Dennis the Menace platformer maybe, or a game involving time travel where you'd meet Beano and Dandy stars from past and present I'd completely forgotten about that! They should do one for Wii, DS, PS3, X360, and the ot...

Re: I'm Bidding farewell to The Dandy

I stopped buying about 4 or 5 issues ago, but will still buy the annual if it is worth it (ie mostly - 75%+ - comic strips)
