(Info via Blimey! It’s another Blog about Comics, re-published here with the kind permission of Lew Stringer): Here’s a sneak peek at the cover of this week’s issue of The Dandy, on sale from Wednesday 26th January.
Under a new cover by Nigel Parkinson there’s the usual mixture of strips including Bork, Desperate Dan, Pre-Skool Prime Minister, and more.
A brand new strip debuts this week: Graeme Reaper, and there’s the second episode of Stan Helsing by Nik Holmes. A reader’s page also makes its return, under the new name Mailbag.
With a script by Philip Madden and artwork by Lew Stringer, Postman Prat has fun teasing dogs with a dog whistle. Will it rebound on him with well-deserved hilarious consequences?
This is The Dandy. Of course it will!
