Comic stamps on sale this week

As reported here back in January, the Royal Mail are issuing a set of stamps tomorrow to mark the 75th anniversary of children's comics (or at least those that appeared after The Dandy made its debut 75 years ago). The 10 first class stamps each feature a different cover of a classic children's comic alongside the star character associated with it.

The stamps are available as strips or in presentation packs (one of which features a free 12 page mini-Dandy) and the same images are also for sale as postcards and pin badges.


To order these collectible items visit the Royal Mail website here:

My thanks for the supplied images to Caroline Stephenson at Eulogy who worked with Royal Mail in devising these stamps.
