Re: Guardian article: The Dandy Faces Closure

A delightful lady called Pat told me I would be sent the Beano for the remainder of the subscription. Being a Dandy fan, not sure if thats much of a consolation! :D

Re: Guardian article: The Dandy Faces Closure

Although saddened, I'm excited to see what the final issue will look like. Now that there will be a finite number of comics to get, I'd like to have the whole lot (he foolishley states trying to imagine finding enough spare pennies to fund getting hold of full runs of comics from the 60s, 50s, 40s a...

Re: Guardian article: The Dandy Faces Closure

Just a small update, got off the phone today with D C Thomson. For £40, they can deliver the last few issues of the Dandy including the final issue in December. Fed up of the hit and miss chance of it being in the shops around Stafford.

Re: Dandy comics post 1970

No really structure to this sorry! Just random thoughts... Only due to nostalgia and from a child of the early 90s memories, I adore the Dan revamp in the 80s. I prefer reading the classic Dan in my 40s, 50s and 60s comics under the stunning blue banner title with the bell boy. I find the early 80s ...

Re: Guardian article: The Dandy Faces Closure

Managed to get a copy! Disgusted with WH Smiths in Stafford for saying to me "Oh no, we don't stock that anymore"!!!!!

Picked up mine from Tescos.

The Independent have some great funny ideas on how to save the Dandy!

What a great funny article! I've tweeted it @booksandcomics! It also raises a great question, using a blow torch for shaving, what would Desperate Dan use to wipe his bum?

Re: Guardian article: The Dandy Faces Closure

Woops! Sorry, yes I meant WWE! I had no idea that they edited both! I just recall seeing one Xtreme with wrestling on the cover and was appalled!

Re: Guardian article: The Dandy Faces Closure

Good point Raven, I am very biased with my opinions as I still collect them! As they've gone through a rebrand again, ditching Harry Hill etc, they've gone full circle, back to have Dan on the cover.

I still think they can get by with having it next to Beano, even if printing fewer numbers.

Re: Guardian article: The Dandy Faces Closure

Hmm...for some reason my first comments didn't publish and I lost my ramblings! Part of my job is marketing and I understand that, if sales drop then reviews need to happen. When selling, money needs to be made. However, what I cannot understand is D C Thomson's marketing strategy for the Dandy sinc...

Re: Whacko! / Robin Hoods School Days

Hi all, I certainly am still reading! I will also confess to getting the two mixed up. I will do a search of the bloggs too! I'm hoping that there is a "darth vader" moment in the reviling of teacher! As for Dandy 2013, I've been checking in my local shops but not seen it yet! In curios about how th...

Whacko! / Robin Hoods School Days

Hi all, one of my favourite strips at the moment is Whacko / Robin Hoods School days.

I think the art is great and story funny and written well.

Does anyone know if you ever actually get to see teachers face? The one who always wears a suit of armour?
