Classic Christmas Comic Covers 1937-1969.

The Dandy and The Beano comics are British institutions evoking fond memories with their bold, bright front covers familiar to millions of boys and girls. Korky the Cat from The Dandy and Biffo the Bear from The Beano were long-standing front cover stars and firm favourites with readers.

The Christmas issues had particularly attractive, stand-alone front covers and are widely collected today.
