It's a fake. Korky the Cat was not on the back cover of Dandy No.1.

I wonder if its the dust cover the real Dandy is inside..?

I thought that was terribly unconvincing acting from the comic shop guy! And he was clearly being filmed from different camera angles at different points, meaning different camera set ups. (There's even a camera behind the counter with him at one point.)

About as convincingly "real" as a typical dose of reality TV!

Well there's shocked and then there's acting shocked, and he did a version of the latter. :lol:

Apart from the paper whiteness and texture, no serrated edges, Korky being on the back, and the unconvincing reaction from the retailer, the biggest giveaway is that you'd be unlikely to find a traditional British comic in a shop devoted to American comics. :wink:

Also, the magic trick might have been more convincing without edits. :lol:

A colleague was telling me about one of those David Blaine type magicians who asked to look at an expensive comic and then ripped it in half. I presumed it was an american comic (I haven't looked at this clip yet) - maybe this was what he was talking about.

Yes I just watched it - it is very impressive though. I mean we saw the corner removed, Can i be the first to exclaim "How did he do that?"

If there was a Dandy 1 in that condition, like Lew said, why would it be in American comic shop. Surely you wouldn't put that kind of thing with that price tag in your shop. Anyone else see any other British comics. I suspect that the producers thought ok what comic would most of the population know of.... and what one will have many facsimiles about due to it 75 anniversary, they must have thought no one would notice that it was out of place.

Not sure how that magician did it but it's based on a very old magic trick that's usually done with a duplicate of a playing card hidden in the palm. Can't see how he could palm a spare Dandy prop though. :lol:

Perhaps he was hoping to get on the cover of the Beano like Dynamo did.

I would've suggested that the Beano advertise this on their Beanotown Buzz page, only it seems to have been dropped in favour of a contents page.

I remember in the late 1970's Denis Gifford loaned or sold a TV production company a copy of something like 'The Rainbow' which got ripped up on screen. It was torn up by actress Geraldine McEwan in an episode of the TV adaptation of Muriel Sparks' novel 'The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie' when Miss Brodie finds one of her class of girls, one of the 'creme de la creme', reading it in class. I remember Denis was not pleased about it.
