I've been invited as a guest for the London Comic Mart on Sunday 2nd December, when the event will be hosting a special Dandy themed day to celebrate 75 years of the much loved comic.
Here's the info from the organizers. More news to come when additional plans are confirmed...
Launched on December 4, 1937 , The Dandy hits 75 years at the beginning of December.
To celebrate the anniversary and to tie-in with the final print issue of the iconic DC Thomson comic, Showmasters is hosting a special edition of its ABC Show. Held on December 2 from noon to 4:00pm at the Royal National Hotel, Bedford Way, London WC1, the festivities are an addition to the regular London Comic Marts held at the same venue.
• In attendance will be such contemporary Dandy artists as Henry Davis, Laura Howell, Gary Northfield, Lew Stringer - plus others to be confirmed.
• On display will be original artwork from The Dandy from the 1930 to the 1960s as well as issues of The Dandy from the same period.
• This is a unique opportunity to meet the people behind The Dandy, hear them talk about their experiences working on the comic and see some of the rarities from the weekly’s history.
In addition dealers will be offering comics and memorabilia from across the wide range of British comics in general.
ENTRANCE IS FREE!
