Just crossed off another of my want list, winning the Dandy No. 1000 from eBay.

There were two auctions of No. 1000 today, but I won the first one.


Interesting that The Beano seemed to celebrate these big numbers much more than The Dandy - Beano #1000 is a beauty to this day but I had to google Dandy #1000 and it doesn't look like much! I wonder why. Still a cool one to get though - is there anything that celebrates the milestone inside?
I don't know about the contents (I am expecting my copy soon), but Korky does (or someone on his strip) mentions the milestone.

I will know about the contents when I get my copy in the next week or so.

Not something I bought today, but a couple of weeks ago and started to read today. I got a copy of the Beano annual 1954. Was in poor condition with scribbles on the front cover but nice and cheap and perfectly readable, I thought. Turned out it was missing 2 pages. I've managed to cobble together the missing pages by looking at pictures on old ebay listings. All except for one page :D If any one wants to let me know what page 58 looks like so I can read the Goggo story I'd be very greatful :lol:

Thank you Al. :D Hawkeye already emailed me a copy of the missing page but thank you for you taking the time to send me it too.

I also did manage to snag another copy of the Beano annual 1954 off ebay for £15 yesterday. Hopefully this one won't have any missing pages. It looked in much better condition than the one I already have.
Once it arrives I plan on giving the other one away for free (alongside printed off copies of the missing pages). If I can find someone who wants it :D
I've got a couple other comics and annuals I might get rid of, in preparation for a potential move.

Update: My 1954 annual arrived. It has all the pages :)

It turns out that Korky made the only reference to the comics landmark issue. There were no other reference to the milestone in the comic.
