The Dandy gets BIGGER

A few weeks ago The Beano added 4 extra pages and now it's the time of The Dandy to increase its page count to 36 pages every week. The price remains the same, at just £1.50 an issue, but the paper stock changes to a thinner, glossy format, similar to that used by American comics. Reproduction of the artwork is perfect, and I'm sure everyone will be pleased with that, although I do miss the sturdy paper stock that was used over the past 12 months.

As you can see from Nigel Parkinson's great cover, Bruce Forsyth is back in his own comic strip inside (well, for one week only). It's just like the days of Film Fun when Brucie was the cover star back in 1962! Artwork below by Roy Wilson.

It's great to hear of a comic actually getting bigger, and good on Sir Brucie! It's nice to see him.
