(Me trying to scan as much of the Dandy cover as I can!)
Well, as I already knew, the covers were a been done differently (only for summer, I think) by Chris McGee. Sure, they're oookkkaaayyy... but does it really have to have celebrities crammmed into every corner of it? It would be nice to see a celeb' free issue again! I hope that the people at Dandy H.Q. aren't thinking of completely filling up the comic with them! I counted four comic strips devoted to them, not including cameo appearences in a few other strips.
Another nice suprise (even if I already knew it was there) was the 'Dave the Squirrel' comic strip, drawn by Andy Fanton! I love this - especially since I created the Dave the Squirrel facebook page, which, if you haven't already, you should go now and like like like! WOO-HOO! www.facebook.com/DavetheSquirrel
And finally - I was glad too see that Lew Stringer's Postman Prat was back! According to Bruce Laing - Prat reappeared in Dandy #3545.
Well, that pretty much sums up this weeks Dandy (which now has the issue number back on the cover! #3548), out now for £2.50! Ooh! And it comes with a free Jokeberry (and a Monkey Bar for the kids)! If you have no idea what that is (and I'm pretty sure you don't), pick up this weeks issue!
