Good news! It turned up this morning! Looks like the previous weeks was just very late! Having them delivered has been great but sporadic at times. Some weeks I will get two issues within a few days of each other and then others its nearly a week and a half!

All the same, I'm glad that I've subscribed and will miss getting them through the post. Still, I am tracking down older issues! Still eagerly after some final copies from the 1970s!

booksandcomics, that is why a number of us complained, and we got switched to Royal Mail 1st Class post. The Beano has reached me on a Monday fairly consistently, Beano Max on a Monday or Tuesday, but the Dandy was arriving on Tuesday, Wednesday or even Thursday. I am at best impolite about TNT.

I cannot complain about my Dandy subscription. It has either arrived on a Saturday or the latest the following Monday.

Of course, there will be no more delays in getting your copy after next week.

Hmm, looks like they altered that artwork on the cover. Take a close look at the winning line.

Compared to the original annual:

For some reason, it was moved. The mice have moved closer to the road as well.

Good spot! I guess this was done to make it fit more neatly on the page? If they didn't the bar code would likely have covered up part of "winning line"?
