I heard about the sad news that the Digital Dandy ended, despite me never reading it. Anyway, you don't reckon it'll ever come back in a new form sometime, will you?

If it does, it'll almost certainly resort to advertising TV shows on the cover again, imo.

I Hope it Does return as Eagle did in the 80s after folding a few years earlier but alas i dont think it will return in this day & age as kids only like plastic tat covered mags,we will only have the annual to look forward to evry august but who knows for how much longer that will last.

BUMP. This is a topic that interests me, and I want sensible replies, with strictly no arguing.

I think if it returned too soon people would consider the last issue as a publicity stunt knowing that they were going to bring it back in the first place. I would love to see it back as the last few issues I read were brilliant, and when it did fold I personally wanted it all to be a publicity stunt but now we realise it wasn't.

Yep. Looks like the digital Dandy has gone the way of Strip (if that will ever come back).

Sad but as we have said already, we have the annual and the occasional specials that pops up from time to time.

I bought the Dandy Summer Special 2014 for the oldest nephew. Previously he was an occasional Dandy reader in 2012.

He just turned 11 and starting secondary in September. The thing that disappointed him was that so much of the material was reprinted. He found old-school 'Winker Watson' stories very dated. I imagine that it was aimed at the occasional reader at £4.99.

Did anyone else read this new special and either enjoyed it or thought that more new material would have made it that much more special?

Thanks Lew and Raven.
I think some boarding schools like Harrow are still like Winker’s school. Harrow still has the straw hats! And apparently the pupils are told NOT to use public transport so as to mix with comprehensive school children! :shock:

He did enjoy Bananaman and Desperate Dan and I don’t think he thought they were reprints.
Any idea if next years will have more original material?

He’ll be 12 next Summer and all of the younger 2012 readers will be that much older.
