Weird Dream

Just woke up from having this dream (and had to get it down before I forgot it). In the dream, I hadn't bought the Dandy for yonks so I decided to get a copy and take it home. On opening it, I found a number of changes. Gone was the Xtreme , it was just the Dandy . The whole front cover was back to ...

Re: The shrinking Dandy Masterhead

To anyone that would know:

Is it likely that the Dandy will disappear - just leaving Xtreme or would the title more likely fold?

In other words, does making the Dandy logo smaller on the cover make any difference to sales? Surely it's the content that matters?

Re: R.I.P The Dandy Masterhead....

I think you'll find the logo is on the poster, and the word Dandy is bigger than on the comic - the same width as the word Xtreme. The table football just says Xtreme (that's odd, a sign of the future?) and the other two gifts are commercial, and can be bought separately (Match Attax and Refresher ...

Re: I'm Bidding farewell to The Dandy

Would be interesting to know if the Dandy Xtreme is currently under the axe or is DCT happy(ish) with its currently sales.

*Getting the magnifying glass out*

Yup! The Dandy logo is still there (just).

Though I notice that it isn't on the accompanying free gifts.

(Note: Didn't get last issue of Dandy Xtreme so first time I have seen the even smaller logo).

Re: I'm Bidding farewell to The Dandy

I still currently get it. Not because I think the comic is good but more out of loyalty for the Dandy of old. Though I do enjoy the strips - just not the rest of it. Besides, £5 a month is not too much to pay at the moment. Also, I am curious to what will happen in the future. Will the Dandy name s...

Re: What would happen if DCT dropped 'The Dandy' from the title?

The point he was making is very simple: When someone says 'Beatles' you don't think of insects, you think of the group. When someone says 'Dandy' you don't think 'fine and dandy' or of a foppish Victorian or Edwardian gent, you think of the comic. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone who would thin...

I was trying to get my head around alanultron5's post (no disrespect) and understood it to mean that the present Dandy has no more in common with the pre-fortnightly than the 'Beatles' band and insects.

But I could be way of base. :?

Re: What would happen if DCT dropped 'The Dandy' from the title?

The `Dandy` name is now just a name! When the Beatles first hit the charts a lot was made of their name and its `insect` connections! By the late 60s no one thought like that any more! they were just the Beatles! I think the same applys to the Dandy! Not sure if I follow you unless you mean that th...

I got it yesterday and it looked better than in other weeks (comic strip content). Had BOTH Desperate Dan and Cuddles & Dimples.

And the Dandy logo sure looks small (even more so on the subscriber's page).

Sales going up. Was that overall? Or just after the relaunch?

Re: The shrinking Dandy Masterhead

Maybe it's because it is the Monday Blues, but I do wonder about DCT's efforts in keeping the Dandy going. Don't get me wrong, I cannot knock them for trying but is it really working? Does Dandy Xtreme sell any better than the Dandy ? I am and will always be a Dandy fan, but as stated before, the Da...
