'Mum Fans' Special

Readers of The Dandy and it's 2007-10 incarnation Dandy Xtreme will have seen Cuddles and Dimples, a strip about two dangerously unpleasant children which was inherited by me in 2004 from it's original cartoonist Barry Appleby. During my tenure it's been written by, amongst others, Craig Ferguson and Ally Bernard.

The page (left, coloured, untypically, by Spectra) features the terrible toddlers' mum, who, inexplicably, has always attracted her own small, mainly over-30 coterie of followers.
This charming little story hasn't yet been published and isn't likely to be. But as a parting gift, enjoy the maxing and relaxing chores of this particular Yummy Mummy one last time!

Hi Nigel,

Does this mean Cuddles & Dimples will no longer be in the Dandy, or a new artist is taking over?

Love the blog!

Hi Spencer
I can't honestly say. Either is possible, I'm sure all will be revealed eventually.
