So that's three times in one year the first issue is being made available again! Not that I'm complaining :D

Huh? Did he just say that sales just went up from roughly 7,500 to over 11,000?

They can't sustain a comic with a circulation of 7,500? I know it's nothing compared to the heyday of comics, but Marvel and DC seem okay with that kind of figure in the USA, so I'm surprised DCT don't consider it worth their while.

It may be less - my figure is from six months ago, the Dandy wasn't mentioned when the latest sales figures were released last week.

Thanks safari wouldn't open the link but chrome did! I think the special was intended to be released at the the time the Dandy had its 75th but with it folding DCT have decided to release it earlier cant see it having the number 1 reprint with it tbh as that'll be given away with the last ever print edition in December

I've mentioned this in the "What comics did you buy today?" thread, but if anyone would be prepared to buy a copy and post it to me, could they PM me and we'll arrange everything, including payment?

Same in Rotherham, you would think WHSmiths would have them in all their stores at the same time. :x

Still not seen one does it exist? Because when I asked the store assistants in WHS I get a look from them that suggests that I've got 2 heads.... (And no I deffinately do not have 2 heads before anyone asks) :wink:
