Is Rubi, from the new story Rubi's Screwtop Science that started a couple of weeks ago, Beano's first wheelchair user, and it's first character with a physical disability?

Congratulations, Digi, on finally completing your collection of the Dandy Comic Library. It must be giving you great satisfaction. :cheers: The last time I looked you still needed twenty-three issues. I have had your Wants List in my wallet on my travels just on the offchance, but curiously the ones I have seen in secondhand shops, in Liverpool, Penzance and Truro mainly, have been predominantly in the low numbers, certainly none in the 200s or 300s. Perhaps Thomsons didn't print as many of the later numbers.

I was never actually sure in Wilfred out of the Bash Street Kids was born without a neck


There was a poor guy in my primary school class who had this.

So it's only the list of titles that you have completed, Digi. Could you not have been more proactive long enough since and rung Thomsons to ask for the list? When I was writing This Was The Wizard that's what I did when I was having great difficulty determining which players in the Famous British Footballers set of football photo cards issued in 1922, and those in the Signed Photos Of British Footballers set from later the same year, were issued only in England, or only in Scotland, or both. Calum Laird was extremely helpful.
