Tuesday Runaround – The Dandy And The Bat

Tuesday Runaround – The Dandy And The BatDandyWatch: I've just been on BBC Radio West Midlands to talk about the rumoured demise of The Dandy, one of the longest running comics in the world. It feels a little like a bit of PR to me, to bring attention to a childhood favourite. I buy The Dandy for my kids, I do hope it survives, and maybe the press blitz may lift those 8,000 sales and avoid it having to turn into a DandyMAX…

BatWatch: Holy Horshoe Batman by Cry-Ky.

DreddWatch: Cam Kennedy shares his Batman stories with the BBC, while talking Dredd with Alan Grant.

"Eventually it was decided one of us should go to New York and confront Denny O'Neil, a writer and editor mainly of Batman stories, about our pitch.

"It was me – the one furthest from the main airports and who had to take a ferry and then drive to Glasgow – who was picked to go.

"When I finally got to DC Comics, I was pointed down a corridor to O'Neil's office. This guy with braces holding up his troosers came out of the office just before I reached it.

"I asked him if he was Denny O'Neil and then told him I was Cam Kennedy from Scotland. He just looked at me and said "Kenny Who?"

Greatly amused, Wagner and Grant went on to write Kenny Who? as a character. In one strip, he travels to Mega-City One from the Caledonian Hab Zone (Calhab) in Scotland.

Kennedy said: "Kenny Who? ends up in jail and his wife and two kids then come over and confront Dredd. One of Kenny's kids pees on Dredd."

CatWatch: Catwoman joins the Injustice: Gods Among Us game.
