Farewell to the Dandy 1937-2012

Post by tony ingram on Thu Dec 06, 2012 8:27 pm

On 4th December 2012, The Dandy-one of the longest running comics in the world-saw print for the last time after 75 years of providing fun and laughter for Britain's kids. It was the third longest running comic ever, after Dc's Detective Comics and the Italian Il Giornalino. Truly, the end of an era...

"Dandy Xtreme"? A "lifestyle magazine for the under-tens"? Oh dear...

Yes. It says it all really, doesn't it?

Excellent final issue.

Unlike most of its contemporaries The Dandy hasn't vanished from the shelves with a "great news inside chums" but instead goes out with a terrific celebration of 75 years.

Favourite strips were Black Bob and The Umbrella Men.

Winker Watson is a real blast from the past with talk of halfpennies and panniers.

It was mentioned on another website that rather than bemoan the loss of The Dandy we should celebrate the fact that it outlasted every other British comic save for the Beano.

Well...I dunno about that. If by "outlasted" you mean "is still here", so are Commando and 2000AD. If by "outlasted" you mean "lasted longer than", The Beano is still younger than The Dandy, so it's still inaccurate...
