Fireworks in a 2011 comic!

Here is, as far as I'm aware, the first review posted online about the latest Dandy! Woop! So, before we get started, I'd just like to apologise to all those who were expecting me to write a post on the halloween Beano. Unfortunatly for me, my subscription has run out, so may not be recieving any issues for several weeks!
I'm going to start off with Nigel's Harry Hill. Both Jack (Captain Jack from Dr. Who and Torchwood) and Catherine Tate are sitting on top of lit fireworks! This is incredible! I'd never have thought this would have been allowed to be printed in a 21st Century Comic! So a big "Razzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!" to all the critics who will without a doubt moan and groan long and hard about this giving children bad ideas (a Daily Mail article parhaps?).

On the left (below) is the artwork and colouring from this weeks issue, on on the right the one from Nigel Parkinson's blog here: http://nigelparkinsoncartoons.blogspot.com/2011/10/halloween.html
zdoen't the one on the right just look so much better than the printed one? I reckon it should have been used, but then both of the Harry Hill pages would have to have this background - maybe it would be a bit distracting?

And there is even more fireworks related stuff! Postman Prat uses them in replacement of his engine, Si Fawke doesn't try to blow up parliment, your very own cut out fireworks display by Nigel Auchterlounie, Korky the Cat's ancestor captures a very cunning fox and, and, well actually, that's it! (But hey, 7 pages of fireworks fun isn't that bad is it?!)

Well, that pretty much sums up all of this week's firework action! So go on out to buy The Dandy for just £1.50 - or get a subscription and it gets delieverd straight to your front door!

Expired Beano subscription? Just buy them in the shops then. If you missed last week's, order it as a back issue from DCT.

I would, but I live in New Zealand at the moment, and the Beano's (and other mags) are months behind!
