Boy­hood days made happy by both The Beano and Dandy

Let's Talk - - POSTBAG -

The ar­ti­cle in the Au­gust edi­tion on the Beano’s 80th an­niver­sary brought back many happy boy­hood mem­o­ries.

The Beano was al­ways my favourite comic but I re­ally had the best of both worlds be­cause my friend, who lived op­po­site, al­ways had the Dandy and af­ter a few days we would swap.

The is­sues I al­ways looked for­ward to most were the Christ­mas is­sues when the ti­tles of both would be pic­tured with snow on the top.

When they came out it re­ally felt that Christ­mas was near. My par­ent’s en­cour­aged me to read (what I think was called) “The Chil­dren’s News­pa­per” but this was a much more se­ri­ous pub­li­ca­tion, and never had snow on its Christ­mas edi­tion, so for me it never re­ally took off!
