Cor blimey! The Dandy may be canned after 75 years of publication!

All right? Britain's oldest comic, The Dandy, featuring Desperate Dan and Korky the Cat, is in serious danger of being cancelled as publisher DC Thomson (no relation to Outhouse staffer BK Thomson) is giving it's magazine division, and by proxy its readers, a bit of the ol' in-out. With a circulation in the millions during the 1950s, The Dandy has been hitting the hard lines lately, now selling scarcely 8000 copies a fortnight, as children are more interested in playing video games or watching the telly.
Fanblokes needn't totally despair, however. Things might be sorted after all, as, so long as they aren't totally full of bollocks, Thomson promises that the characters will continue to exist online, so you can still get your fix, right right? So keep your peckers up, mates. Though prospects are bleak, if you fancy The Dandy, you're not snookered yet.
