Re: Children's Holiday Fun

That looks like Dandy's Addie and Hermy, but drawn by a different artist. A prototype, perhaps?

Re: Superlopez in Beano and Dandy?

I've not seen it before. But that doesn't mean it's never appeared here.

Re: Rebellion Purchase Comic Cuts & Look In

Yeah, somehow I don't see a Weary Willie and Tired Tim collection, for example, selling. Comic Cuts ended 65 years ago after all - so anyone who read that when it first came out is in their 70s at least. They can't rely on a nostalgia market consisting only of pensioners, they need to attract new re...

Re: Superlopez in Beano and Dandy?

The page you're quoting said "Beano and Dandy style magazines". I know for a fact it wasn't in either of those. Dandy did run another European strip though, Tootuff, in 2004.

Seems more likely to me that it was in one of Fleetway's comics?

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Just bought Sniper Elite: Resistance and it feels like one of Garth Ennis' War Stories. A wee bit pricey at £2.99, but I am going to support it as a certain bunch of rodents are making an appearance in issue 3! I found myself reading this in smiths, I really liked it! It's not a library! Did you ac...

Re: Beano : 80 Years of Fun

The poster in the boxset was also given away with this week's Beano. It's great (I'm really impressed at how hardly anyone is off model), except for two errors. One is that Mercurian flying boy Jack Flash is mistakenly called Jack Silver, who is a Dandy character. The other is that Scrapper appears ...

Christmas comes early - 2018 Christmas Special already out!

The Beano Christmas Special 2018 has already turned up in the shops. At least two months early, I believe?

Re: The Beano Book 1940 Facsimile

They're print to order and personalised (you can add a greeting when ordering, it seems these are a couple of pages longer than the originals as a result). That's why it's £20 and not £8 like the current annuals.

Re: Beano : 80 Years of Fun

McColls and Supernews are both also selling the bookazine. Oddly, Supernews (at least the branch I saw it in) doesn't sell the weekly Beano. I'd already picked it up in WHSmith before I saw it in the other shops though.

Re: Never Been Without A Beano.

Yeah, that was in the Sunday People. Unfortunately there's a couple of mistakes... The 80th anniversary edition will land on his doormat tomorrow. He should actually already have the next issue. He has the anniversary one in one of the photos there! Gnasher's first appearance in the show Uh, what? W...

Re: Submitting comics to the gallery

For some reason the cover of Beano #1 has been deleted from the gallery.

Dennis and Gnasher Fan Club revived

The Dennis and Gnasher Fan Club has been revived. The Gnasher badge is the same, but the wallet and the other badge have been updated with a modern pic of Dennis and the words The Menace changed to And Gnasher. They've also added a membership card which looks like a gnashed credit card and gives acc...
