Dandy/Beano..still going strong. The most succesful comics ever. Privately owned.

Tuppence, yes....I buy the odd one for my wee G/kids - now 2.95!!!

There was a second hand shop in Rutherglen Rd that sold second hand ones for a penny; paid you a farthing for your old one.
My son's got stored away the yearly annual Dandy/Beanos I bought him in the 60s/70s

DANDY in danger! according to todays Daily Mail the DANDY's circulation is down to 8000 per week and is in danger of being closed down.
This is down from a peak of 2,000,000 copies a week
The BEANO is not that much better with a weekly circulation of 32000

That would be sad but true !

Maybe the Dandy and Beano circulation could improve with a page 3 girl !

Ah think Desperate Dan wid hiv tae tuck intae McDonalds cooburgers an Korky walk aboot wi an iPhone tae attract youngsters nooadays. Weans nooadays don't use peashooters an catapults, play street games, or dae any wan of a hundred other things that kids used tae dae, so ah suppose they don't see much relevance in aulder comics like The Dandy.
