The Dandy goes digital

He's sunk U-boats with a peashooter and sailed off into the sunset with the Spice Girls. Desperate Dan was once the star of the world's best-selling comic book, the man who could "chew iron and spit rust". But the Dandy is to cease its weekly print edition this week, becoming an online-only publication.

Issue zero of the digital Dandy – published with the help of digital development partners Dubit and Guerilla Tea – is launched to coincide with the final print edition hitting the newsstand. It will feature interactive extras such as games, a joke shop, Dandy TV Show with game reviews, celebrity interviews and 'News At Dan' round-up presented by television presenter and comedian Chris Cohen.
