Re: 2017 Annuals

It was not the final cover. The in-comic ads carry a small print disclaimer that the Beano annual cover may be different (read: WILL be different) but I haven't had a chance to dig around and see if it's available in Belfast yet.

Re: DC Thomson advertises “Heritage Brands” editor

I found it interesting that they were advertising - I thought they had already replaced Morris Heggie as archivist, and of course this is combining his former role with that of Calum Laird.

Re: Cuddles & Dimples to return....

DC Thomson already knows its market - that's why the Dandy special bookazines are classic material (albeit I think prepared by the Beano team) and we get the annual Beano/Dandy archive books. It's also why the Dandy finished - not enough of us were buying it. I think that while Rebellion will make u...

Re: Beano to get CGI revamp for YouTube generation

The ad for the Beano annual says "Please note that the front cover image of the Beano annual may change." That said, next week is clearly going to be the pre-launch, as another issue is required to defeat Walter and his dad before the actual revamp happens. My copy arrived today - it's the vagaries ...

27th August. Shows how much attention I pay to anything other than the actual comic (which I definitely read on the day it arrives!)

I think David is 81 or 82. Hopefully he hasn't retired altogether.

Re: The Beano logo has shrank this week..

It's a fair picking of nits. The logo constitutes part or all of the masthead - so, for example, to take Arena of Awesome, its logo was the central part of the masthead, and the panels showing the fighters are not logos but still part of the masthead. Jamie does similarly with Looshkin - the other e...

Re: The Topper Beezer Top 100

I know Little Mo was drawn by Jim Petrie at the end, and I'm just trying to remember if Bob Dewar drew her immediately after Bob McGrath retired.
