To mark the 75th anniversary of the The Dandy, the UK’s longest-running comic, the Royal mail has issued a set of stamps to celebrate some of Britain’s best-loved comic book characters.
As well as Dennis and Gnasher, the stamps feature Desperate Dan from The Dandy and Roy of the Rovers.
The Dandy was launched in 1937 by Dundee publishing company DC Thompson. During the 1950s, it sold more than 2m copies a week! But since then, the Beano has overtaken it and remains the country’s best-selling comic.
In addition to the Beano and Dandy, the other comics in the collection are Eagle, The Topper And Tiger, Bunty, Buster, Valiant, Twinkle and 2000AD.
