The Dandy: Barney Boko

Although often ignored in the discussion of Golden Age Things, British comics magazine The Dandy is the the world's third-longest running comic, after Detective Comics (beating it by several months in 1937) and Il Giornalino (started in 1924)

This month marks the final print issue of The Dandy. The publication will now be online only. 

In honor of this changing giant, I offer a golden age favorite on mine, Barney Boko. Barney is tramp whose long nose often caused him trouble and could be used for anything. It ran for seven years from the very first issue.
See www.dandy.com for the new online comics.

Barney Boko is a great strip and they should have kept it going for longer. I wish I knew who did it.
