“Desperate Dan” in “The Dandy”

ENGLISH children’s comic The Dandy has been published by DC Thomson & Co. for decades and one of its longest-running regular strips is Desperate Dan.

In No. 2665 (Dec. 19, 1992), Dan is shaving when he’s challenged by Harold The Hairy to a wrestling match.

“The guy’s ravin’ mad,” says Dan, but he takes him on anywhere and beats the crap out of him. Pretty basic kids’ stuff in this two-pager.

I found this ish in Elizabeth’s Bookstore in Sydney.
