Beano and Dandy Summer Specials 2014
It turns out that last years "Last Ever Dandy Summer Special" wasn't the last ever one after all, as both The Dandy ("back by popular demand", apparently) and The Beano have summer specials out now. Each are 68 pages for £4.99, the Beano's Summer Activity Special (as it is called) coming with free stickers. The front covers can be seen above, The Beano one by Nigel Parkinson (I believe) and The Dandy by Bone-O artist Mike D.
It's good to see summer specials making a bit of a comeback this year, with the 2000AD special and now these it looks promising, but I doubt they'll ever return to their former glory.
They can both be ordered online from D.C Thomson's website:
And if you wish to buy them both together, you can get them for £6.99 in the "Summer Special Pack":
