This week in The Dandy

Another of those bigger (44 pages!) issues this week, with a 4 page Harry Hill story that was going to be one of the original batch of six strips way back in October. It didn't make the cut because I couldn't think of a good plot line to hang it all together. (believe it or not I do try to come up with a plot!) Then David Quantick, famous TV writer and Rock critic came up with a corker and voila, a complete tale. If it doesn't make you laugh, then maybe you just don't WANT to laugh.

Amazing times. Who'd have guessed 45 years ago when we were reading those brilliant 16 page Dandys on newsprint that one day it'd be a full colour comic with 32 to 44 pages? Or that we'd be working for it? Dan-tastic.
