Digi, I'll answer that on the last issue thread if that's ok?

Peter, he isn't, but I will tell you that the first one we didn't guess was number 22. Korky was well above this!

No Dandy yet through the door.

I also liked NP's "Little" celebrity strips as well as Celebrity School (though that didn't last very long). Both would be in my personal top 75.

We'll talk more about this in more detail tomorrow...
But the top ten is very different to what I expected...
Great news for Davy Law, Eric Roberts and Bill Holyrod..all deserve to be in the top 10 and Jimmy Hughes does well..

[color=#FFFFBF]other than the back cover Danny long legs doesn't make it...My teacher is a walrus does.. :lol:

What a difficult task the top ten or even the top 75 and putting them in order..
Black Bob should have been in the top ten..

nice to see the talking ball...and Bertie buncle..

I'll post the full 75 later on, with artists where possible, and character listings for the long strip and covers. There are four I can't get, but I'll go over that tonight.

For now, these are the ones which didn't make it into the last Dandy at all:

Brain Duane
Island of Monsters
Laughing Planet
Mickey the mouth
Rah-Rah Randall
Robot on the Run
Spunky and His Spider
The Badd Lads
The Crackaway Twins
The Crimson Ball
The Purple Cloud
Umba and Rumba
Willie Willikin's Pobble

Also they missed Young Dandy which I liked (enough for me to have wanted to move to Canada when I was a child).

I agree that Black Bob should have been in the Top Ten. :D

Oh well, Pobble made it onto SOMETHING anyway.
