I just heard on the BBC six o’clock news today that the printed edition of The Dandy will end in December this year. That’s a bit sad as The Dandy was my first comic and I wrote about it a couple of weeks ago. I think I’ll miss Korky the Cat the most. DC Thompson have been making noises about exciting hush-hush plans, but as there is already a Dandy app in the Apple AppStore, it doesn’t take a genius to guess what this is. I can’t blame DC Thompson for doing this as I rarely buy printed comics anymore, but I do miss that unique smell of fresh comic pulp. Ahhh.

“Doctor... Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it's smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There's Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there's this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain's Mum
“People will think you're a nerd.”—The Captain's Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don't care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“He is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
