The Dandy, 1938

An early issue of The Dandy from way back at the beginning of it's long run. The colours are still very bright, no doubt due to the lead and titanium in the printers ink. The quality of the paper from the 1930s is also notable, being big, thick and creamy white.

Despite its age, it's still quite a compelling cover. I think it would be a good idea for the current incarnation of the comic to return to a front-page strip. (If it hasn't already.) Do you have any preferences in that department, NP?

The first Dandy firework issue! Nice one, Nigel!

The Dandy is finished. They confirmed it an hour ago. :(
