This is how the Bamboo Town strip originally appeared in the 1943 Dandy Monster Comic

You're not alone, I still haven't got my copy, ordered on November 4th. If I hadn't had to pass some copies on to Paul McCartney, I wouldn't have read one yet.

Has anybody received a copy from DC Thomson's second print run from their shop or is it too early? I ordered mine about Thursday last week. I expect they were swamped with orders.

I got mine as part of my normal subscription.

I'm trying to figure out what got changed in the Bamboo Town reprints, if anything.

I got mine in the mail this morning, and I plan to write my thoughts on the final issue on my blog in the next couple of days.

Nothing has changed regards to dialog artwork etc the only difference is the paper (obviously) and the background has been lightened and there is no 127 (the page number it appeared on in the 1943 monster comic)

If you watch the `Comics Uk` three part TV specials `Bamboo Town` is highlighted -`because` of its `Cod` English as spoken by Foreigners!

Regarding Paul McCartbey, I have a copy of the NME he said he wanted to be in `Dandy` its the 15th Feb 1963 issue in `Life-Lines` Wish I could find a way of posting it here!

Just to prove it never fails to surprise in that you can't keep a good comic down.

He could mean Paul McCartney the comic dealer.
