Paul McCartney Appears In The Final Issue Of The Dandy

He almost left it too late.

But Sir Paul McCartney appears in the final print issue of The Dandy, as the new digital version launches.

Apparently, as a young boy he was a fan of weekly children’s anthology humour comic that’s been running since 1938, and over the years many celebrities have appeared in the strips in both The Dandy and its sister comic, The Beano. He gave an interview with the NME in 1963 saying it was his life’s ambition to appear in the Dandy. But it never happened  So when he heard it was closing, he got in touch and offered his likeness rights… he wrote;

 The Dandy was a favourite comic of mine when growing up in Liverpool and each week I would look forward to the exploits of Desperate Dan and his other comic book colleagues.

I feel a little sadness that I see its final issue is appearing in December.

In 1963, in the NME, when asked what my personal ambition was, I replied – to have my picture in The Dandy! I hope it’s not too late!

And on Tuesday it will finally happen, as the fifty favourite Dandy characters over 75 years hold a sing-a-long of Hey Jude,

The Daily Record gives you seventy-five facts about the comic, including;

22. The issue dated April 22, 1950, sold 2,035,010 – the most popular comic in UK history.
