Korky's Toy Shop", with a mechanical Desperate Dan pushing a tin of red paint (on a shelf above Korky) onto him. Price 6/- Thanks to The Dandy, The Beano and other D C Thomson comics which followed, Dundee gained a reputation as a major centre of the comics industry, and has been called the 'comic capital of Britain'. [9] [10] [11] Partly as a result of this legacy, the city is now home to the Scottish Centre for Comic Studies. [10] [11] The connection is also marked by bronze statues of Desperate Dan and The Beano character Minnie the Minx installed in the city's High Street in 2001. Designed by Tony Morrow, the Desperate Dan statue, which also features his dog Dawg, is the most photographed of 120 pieces of public art in the city. [9] [10] [12] In July 2001 the cover of The Dandy featured Dan visiting Dundee and encountering his statue. [9] In December 2012 the University of Dundee held an exhibition in partnership with D C Thomson to mark the comic's 75th anniversary. [3] See also [ edit ]

The annuals are traditionally published in July or August, in time for Christmas, and since 1965 they have had the date of the following year on the cover. Before then no date was given.

The name changed to The Dandy Book in the following year and continued, the year changing for each different annual, until the release of the 2003 book in 2002 when it was renamed "Annual". This approach helps to ensure that most of your comics have a reasonable value estimate based only on real sales data (not speculation).
