Dad’s been to Chesterfield Market today. I’ve no money to go myself, but he’s brought me a few comics back. Which is nice.
He’s brought me a dozen Beanos (four from 1985, the rest from 1988 – still none from the summer Gnasher went missing!), plus the 1978 Dandy Book.
Mum and Dad are having the walls and loft insulated tomorrow, so this week, we’ve been clearing the space upstairs, and we keep finding books and comics I’d long since given up hope of finding, or had forgotten about. Yesterday, we came across the 2003 Beano Annual, plus some Oink!s I bought from a bookshop in Cardiff a few years ago – issue 50, the 1988 Holiday Special, and the Oink! Book 1989 (which, oddly, is a paperback). Today, we’ve found a couple of mid-noughties Beanos. Hence, the list has been updated accordingly. EDIT: We’ve since found a load more early/mid-noughties Dandys and Beanos, five of each. These are from when my younger siblings were reading them a few years ago. Plus The Dandy Annual 2004. Our loft is quite the little treasure chest.
I’m also now up to date with my weekly Dandy and Beano. Next tuesday sees the Last Ever Dandy. It’s going to be sad, sad day…
