Re: Issue numbers - Beano is only five behind Dandy

It seems that my last post was a wee bit premature.

I just went to Sainsbury's today and bought the latest issues of the Dandy and the Beano. Both have the same issue number (No 3461). Both have the same issue date (6th December 2008).

Obsession over. :mrgreen:

Re: Issue numbers - Beano is only five behind Dandy

Thanks to Connor, I went out this weekend and bought the 3460th issues of the Beano and the Dandy which are both out this week.

Thanks again Connor. :up:

Re: Issue numbers - Beano is only five behind Dandy

LOL. You are right, Connor.

I just checked the last couple of Dandys and their issue numbers are

11/11/2008 - No. 3457
25/10/2008 - No. 3458
08/11/2008 - No. 3457

No wonder I missed it (or have I???)

Thanks, Connor for pointing that one out. :cheers:

Re: How could the Dandy save itself?

I got to say that Black Bob was my all-time favourite Dandy strip (so much that I have managed to collect all his annuals). However, saying that, I agree that it was rather dated even then (not only the way it was presented (with text and no speech balloons) but also the type of stories) and it woul...

Re: Issue numbers - Beano is only five behind Dandy

Last week was when the Beano caught up the Dandy issue-wise and guess who forgot to go down and buy the comics?

I bought them this week but the Beano is now one issue ahead.

Never mind.

That makes sense, Lew. Like you I always preferred the Dandy over the Beano one of the reasons being the adventure stories (though I was/am more fond of the Dandy characters). Saying that, like I said, I did enjoy both comics as a child. And bringing the Magic into the mix, you could see that DCT pr...

Dandy v Beano - Why is Beano the more successful?

Of course it is the strips. But is it that the Beano has always had a stronger line-up to the Dandy 's? Or is it just they have been lucky by having a few good uns, namely Dennis the Menace, the Bash Street Kids and Minnie the Minx, in its pages? When I used to get both of them as a kid in the 70s, ...

Thanks, Peter.

Reminds me a bit of what 2000AD did during a logo style change.

Re: WHAT'S REKINDLED YOUR COMIC COLLECTING?

I suppose I have been hording comics since I was five but only started really collecting them since 2000AD came out when I was 13. I must admit that eBay is a bit of a God-send. Although never stopping entirely collecting comics, it was eBay that has helped to get my hobby back on track. Apart from ...

Through my enthusiasm, I do see your point, Lew.

I still like the idea of the Beano stable of comics and I do wonder if a closer association between the two comics (maybe friends rather than enemies with cross-over strips, etc...) would help the Dandy's circulation.

I too think it would be a sad thing to merge the Beano and the Dandy together - especially I am a Dandy fan. I wonder that instead of doing that, would it be a good idea to create a Beano stable of comics consisting of the following: Beano - flagship comic Beanomax - big brother to the Beano Dandy -...

Question about the Dandy's revamp in 2004.

Was there a break in the Dandy's schedule before the 2004 revamp out?

I read/heard it somewhere that it did.

Is this correct?
