Comic Book Stamps
Royal Mail

Gosh!, Golly!, Gasp! And that was just us when we were asked by the Royal Mail to design a set of stamps celebrating 75yrs of classic British comics. Eventually a fairly classic route was agreed upon featuring a typical cover along with a portrait of a favourite character. Dennis the Menace seems to feature in most people’s favourites!

The final printed edition of the Dandy had been issued in December 2012, the comic’s seventy-fifth anniversary. Royal Mail decided to celebrate Britain’s longest-running bunch of cartoon characters with this special set of the nation’s favourite British Comics. Many of the covers used as images are from the first issues.
