1. DundeeThe Beano comic is a long-running British children's comic, published by D. C. Thomson & Co. Ltd of Dundee, Scotland in the United Kingdom. The comic first appeared in 1938 and was published weekly, during the Second World War, The Beano or The Dandy was published on alternating weeks due to paper and ink rationing. D.C. Thomson's other publications also suffered with the Oor Wullie and The Broons annuals falling victim to paper and ink shortages. Paper and ink supplies were fully restored shortly after the end of hostilities and weekly publication of The Beano and The Dandy soon followed. As of 2007, over 3000 issues have been published. The Dandy is a British children's comic published by D. C. Thomson & Co. Ltd of Dundee, Scotland, which was first issued on 3 December (dated 4 December) 1937, and is currently the longest running comic in the UK, which it became as of issue 3007 (dated 10 July 1999). This beat the previous record holder, Comic Cuts, which ran for 3006 issues between 17 May 1890 - 12 September 1953. Internationally very few titles surpass the Dandy’s achievement, beaten in terms of duration by Detective Comics (USA) which began in March 1937 and is still running today.
