The Dandy Can't Post or Reply Privately

It is being reported that The Dandy comic is set to close after a glorious 75 years of publication. It is being said by the publishers that its heyday of sales in excess of 2m copies a week has dropped to only 8,000 a week nowadays.
Oh dear.

I have always thought of you as a Forum reader.

Didn't they feature an inordinate number of unipeds?

The closest I've come to reading a comic is Murky Murdoch's The Sun 'newspaper'.

Come to think of it that's pretty close to reading a comic.

Growing up in the Seventies, Beano, Dandy, Whizzer & Chips, Victor, pocket commando type small comic war booklets. Tiger, Scorcher, Roy of the Rovers, when it branched out on it's own. There was also one in the latter part of that decade called Scoop. They're the ones I've thought of straight away.

Always sneaked reads of my two sisters ones too...Jackie, Bunty, sure there were more.

Used to pick up old annuals for pennies at jumble sales. They were already bashed up, or we battered them, but wish I'd kept them, as I'm sure we all fo about many toys & books & other stuff we had as children. We had lots of annuals that were a decade or more old back in the mid-seventies. Shame all thrown out many moons ago, as I had quite a collection of 'Roy of the Rovers' annuals, but there you go.

Another sad demise, but to be expected. Does anybody buy comics anymore?
The modern production values leave a lot to be desired. Have you seen the crappy artwork for Desperate Dan.

WH Smith is currently selling a 75th anniversary edition of the Dandy, although I didn't buy it may be of interest to some if only becuase it includes a strip called "Addy and Hermy" which pokes fun at Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goering. Can you imagine a children's comic today doing the same with Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, or the leaders of North Korea?

Re: [Whiskey Coates] The Dandy [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

In the mid 70s it was

Beano
Dandy
Beezer and Topper when they were large size with the Cheeky and i think Plug pull outs unless someone corrects me.

Buster
Whizzer and Chips
Whoopee.

When my pocket money went up to 50p a week i could afford all these and a ten penny mixture from the sweet shop on my estate in Bletchley.

Kids just don't read anymore. I think technology, although having it's obvious good points, has turned yoof into inarticulate morons. (Cue the comments against sweeping generalisations)

Latest pop-related news is that Ali Hassan Abd al-Majid al-Tikriti has joined them on lead vocals. They're gonna call themselves The Chemical Ali Brothers.
