Paul McCartney to Fulfill Personal Ambition and Appear in 'The Dandy'

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Paul McCartney is set to fulfill a “personal ambition” and appear in the final print edition of British comic, The Dandy.

When he learned that the comic would only be available online after the December 12th issue, Paul wrote a letter to the comic’s creators, saying, “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."

 

He continued: "In 1963, when asked what my personal ambition was, I replied – to have my picture in The Dandy! I hope it's not too late!"

 

Print Editor of The Dandy, Craig Graham, said: "When the decision was taken to stop printing The Dandy and take it online earlier this year, it really was a case of now or never.  Sir Paul wrote a lovely letter to us, wishing The Dandy well and hoping it wasn't too late to make an appearance.  How could we refuse?"
