Every week I would get the Beano and my brother would get the Dandy. They were delivered by the Co-op newsagent on a particular afternoon (I think it was a Wednesday) along with our evening paper. My brother and I would wait patiently at the door for the paper boy to come along.
We read our comics immediately, but didn't swap till the next day - well, they had to be read all over again in bed that night! Sometimes Dad would read his favourite parts to us - that was a great treat because he made up silly voices for the characters. We loved that! My favourites were the Bash Street Kids - I thought they were so naughty!
My own sons also read the Beano and Dandy - these are theirs from the 1990s. Don't have any really old editions. I have a large box of them and can't bring myself to throw them out. Beano is still published by D C Thomson.
