It's Dandy day again!


Just a reminder that as well as Toxic returning to the shelves today (see yesterday's post) The Dandy is also back after its Christmas break.

Above is a panel from my Postman Prat strip, and below is the cover to look out for. Yes, Desperate Dan is back on the front page:

No new Commando previews yet Lew?

Lew Stringer said...

I haven't received any press release yet but I don't think they're out until next week are they? I've lost track.

Lew Stringer said...

Correction: the new issues of Commando are out. (I've just bought them.) No press release from DC Thomson this time but I'll plug the issues myself later tonight.

sacidenHi Lew,

My son is rather concerned that Kid Cops isn't in the new issue of The Dandy. He's scared its been dropped and it's one of his favourite strips.

Will we be seeing more of the Kid Cops?

Lew Stringer said...

I'm pleased to hear he likes it David. I'm hoping it's just taking a break but I've no idea when it'll be back. I think they want to keep the comic fresh with new ideas.

I am drawing a two page Kid Cops for the Dandy Annual but that's months away yet of course. If the strip does return to the weekly I'll post news here as soon as I know. Sorry I can't be more helpful at present.

So Harry Hill has somehow, for this week at any rate, migrated from the cover of the Dandy to the cover of Toxic?

Lew Stringer said...

It's all Karma, Tom. Dandy Xtreme imitated Toxic so.... :-)

James Spiring said...

lol, Harry's still on the Dandy cover, it's just that his picture is much smaller than Desperate Dan's!

Harry Rickard said...

Hi Lew,

Thank you very much for commenting on my fan art for Andy Fanton!

Anyway, Postman Prat was great this week but I was very worried to find there was no Kid Cops... If this was because of the vote then why have Kid Cops and Robot on the Run gone when Harry Hill and Shao Lin Punks were least popular? I hope they both haven't gone, they were two of my favourite strips! Anyway, as I said, great Postman Prat, the thugs you put in always remind me of Tom Thug for some reason! Great artwork this issue by the way, I hope to see Kid Cops and Postman Prat both by you in next week's...

Lew Stringer said...

Thanks Harry. Kid Cops is having a break but I hope it'll return in the future.

Haven't seen this week's Dandy in any of the usual outlets - or anywhere, in fact....

Lew Stringer said...

Perhaps there have been some distribution problems to your area? It might be worth contacting The Dandy about it as they might not be aware.

It is more than a little rum to make a big fuss about how readers can vote 'X Factor style' for which strips to keep and drop ... and dropping the ones which have higher votes and keeping the ones which have lower votes.
