No, D.C. Thomson annuals have been published in July for years now. I remember buying them in July from Borders in Birmingham about ten years ago, but on the same day, Waterstones told me they had them in stock but were not selling them until September because they wanted to shift other books first.

I bought this 2018 edition from Speedyhen, and it arrived this morning. Other online sellers have them ready to buy now too.

The release timing may not be a record, but the annual's run probably is. 80 editions. 1939 to 2018. I doubt any other comic annual can claim such a run - Beano, of course, is one year behind (started with the 1940 edition), so would take the record if Dandy's stops (2019 is already confirmed to be happening, at least). The Beezer Book lasted until 2003, 10 years after the comic was axed, so the Dandy Annual should still have at least a few years left. Long may it continue.

Quite possibly only Pears can beat it with its 126th distinct edition due this year, but it's only been annual since 1953.
