Re: What comics did you buy today?

I hope it's page count was double what it's Beano and Dandy contemporaries had (38p for 24 pages, starting from the 8 October 1994 issues, 35p prior), as at 85p, Hurricanes was more than double the price per issue (though only 9p more a fortnight). How long did it run for anyway? And come to think ...

In Waitrose in Ramsgate this week's Beano and latest Beano plus issue 30 (dated 28 July 2012) of the Phoenix, the first time I've seen any issue of this publication in this branch (my nearest branch) since it was published.

Re: The Final Dandy

Their return is a 4-page story drawn by NP. If it is a reprint or one of the unpublished stories I don't know, not having seen may NP Cuddles & Dimples.
