Last ever issue of comics. Did any get such hype like Dandy?

Re: This week's issue Take 2

The Numskulls' art style has slightly changed recently. It's by the same artist still but the way it's coloured has changed slightly. On the subject of changing Roger and Dennis' parents. I think it is a good idea as it takes away some of the anachronisms (Parents with moustaches) in the Beano whic...

Re: Guardian article: The Dandy Faces Closure

Who'd want it if it doesn't sell? Besides, it would harm the retro annual. The annuals still sell well and are continuing. Also, the Dandy editor doubles up as the WWE Kids editor, so a takeover by another company would require a new editing team. Yeah, just thought of that Someone even joked on an...

Re: This week's issue Take 2

Hey, why is the Beano advertising something which the target audience is banned from buying ? Back cover, advert for a 12-rated Nintendo DS game, called Inazuma Eleven 2. Not sure why it has a 12-rating in the first place though considering the Japanese rating is A (all ages) and there's a CITV car...

As recent Dandy relaunches seemed to have lasted every 3 years. Will this Dandy stand up to 2013 with or without celebs?

Longest running Beano reader & the one with the most issues?

This week, I will have bought my 2000th Beano after been reading the comic since 1985 (I'm 33 now).

As there are a few members here who read the comics. Is there anyone here who is one of the longest running readers or ones who have had the most collection of comics.

Re: Comics on TV

Public Information Film from 1980 on children using matches. Unknown to him, he lays the lit match onto a Beano comic and burns it.

Re: This week's issue

Isn't this supposed to be a discussion on stories on the curent week's issue? It seems to be turning into a chat about other subjects which should be in seperate posts?
