'The Dandy' to relaunch this month

By
'The Dandy', from DC Thompson
DC Thomson has announced that The Dandy will relaunch as a weekly comic later this month, Bleeding Cool reports.

The popular children's anthology was rebranded as Dandy XTreme in 2007, but declining sales figures have led to another overhaul.

Costing £1.50 per issue, the revamped Dandy will see a return to its original format and feature strips based on characters old and new.

Andy Fanton's 'George And The Dragon' and Alexander's 'Robot On The Run' will debut in the comic post-relaunch.

First appearing in 1937, The Dandy is Britain's longest-running comic book, and the world's third longest-running behind Il Giornalino and Detective Comics.

The title will relaunch on October 27.
