"Don't tell me that the Dandy is going even more Xtreme:(???)
Seems to be a lot of fuss built on nothing, if you ask me.
a bit of cold hard analysis shows that a: fortnightlies don't go weekly when sales are falling, b: prices go up to please retailers when sales are falling and c: original material costs money, which is in short supply when sales are falling.
Another possibility crossed my mind... Keeping Xtreme as a monthly (a la BeanoMax)
As for the Dandy, I wonder if DCT are thinking maybe it's strayed too far from its classic format, and this will be... focusing on - 'classic' Thomson comic characters.
I've worked it out..its DFC coming back as a weekly in newsagents..
hence Jamie saying he wanted to say something..he drew for DFC..
perhaps the news is beano max and dandy extreme merging so both title will be under the beano motif
Marvo the Wonder Chicken will certainly be in the re-launched comic
Of course he will, his new cartoon series hasn't turned up on TV yet (despite being announced at the same time as last year's Dennis and Gnasher series). They won't drop Marvo until that cartoon has aired.
A new Marvo the Wonder Chicken title to tie in with the forthcoming TV shows. Something a bit looser and wackier than Beano and Dandy with long Marvo strips, American comic style. Maybe a monthly. Free DVD in the first issue? Failing that, free rubber chicken?
Maybe they will "merge" it with "Classics" and add a few reprints to it and make it a half new and half reprint comic.
Classics from the comics ends..maybe its merged with The Dandy..?
Classic pages mixed inside The Dandy."
All of these suggestions have one thing in common...
