DANDY COMIC: The Dandy comic is one of he worlds longest running comics and in 2007 changed its name to the Dandy Extreme. A copy of #1 of the Dandy (December 4th 1937) with the original toy sold for over £21,000 making it the most expensive british comic ever sold. There has been reprints of the first Dandy comic but the best way to get a copy is to buy the 1978 D.C. Thomson Firsts book. This book has reprints of the first Beano, Skipper, Adventure, Hotspur, Rover, Wizard, Dandy & Magic comic. (If you have one of these they can sell for up to £30. They are starting to become quite rare.)  Please vote up if you found this guide useful! Go to Facebook and search sell your comics. They will sell them for you!
