Re: Greetings!

I am debating buying copies from 2005 onwards plus the new ones, despite my dislike of the extreme years, it's all part of its history I guess!

Re: Greetings!

Sadly not! I never quite got on with those to be honest. Had a few in the past but sold them on.

Re: Duplicate photos in the Beano - and other surprises

Sorry, I meant those who had written into the comic, the prize winners, those who starred in pictures for their collections etc.

Re: New Dandy Logo in 1960

Do you have a spare copy of the first Dandy new logo one? I actually have the free thunderbang gift but not the comic!

Re: Beano and Dandy competition 1952.

Did you ever find out what it was? I've only got three issues of Dandy from 1952, the only reference to big prizes I have is Cowboy togs, but, it's "find out more next week!" and I don't have the following weeks issue!

Re: Dandy No.500

Woops! Only 6 years late in reply to this, but, I bought my copy without seeing the cover from the Book and Magazine cover. I was really disapointed when I got it though! I was expecting a big birthday cake on the cover or atleast much more than just a simply "500th Issue!" reference at the top of t...

Re: What Dandy Character Would You Like Back?

I can't quite recall if one came from Hoot or from Nutty, but, in the early issues of the combined Dandy and Hoot/Nutty, both the parents of Cuddles and Dimples appeared! After a while though they just vanished! I assume one was adopted? Funny thoughts when looking back at these comics! I would actu...

Re: Duplicate photos in the Beano - and other surprises

At a push this is related, but, I've always been intrigued at who owned my comics and annuals in the first place. Although I'm sure it is VERY unlikely to belong to great comedian himself, I have an early 1950s Dandy with "This Book Belongs to Benny Hill"! I've also wondered if there have been curre...

Re: Greetings!

Thanks Baby Boomer! At times I do think to myself that I must be crazy! On the other hand though, I want to hit the next milestone of 2,000 comics!!!

Dandy comics post 1970

Hi all, Just thought I'd get some comments / thoughts on this. To put things in the picture, I am 24 and my fav. issues of the Dandy are from 1993 to about 1996. These are the ones I read avidly as a kid and always get nostalgic about them! I have been collecting the comics for a good number of year...

Re: The Art and History of the Dandy

Hi all,

I've actually received a publishers advert about this book and very excited to get hold of it! There is a picture of the cover but I am not sure how to insert a picture into this blog?

Cheers,

Adam

Greetings!

Hello all! Just thought I would introduce myself! I am a 24 year old avid Dandy fan and collector. My favourite issues are the early 1990s for nostalgic reasons mainly (I also like looking back in horror at some of the adverts, i.e. an original Gameboy with Tetris was £89!!!!!!). Although I ditched ...
