News Summary: Long-running UK comic book may end
Tuesday - 8/14/2012, 2:06pm EDT
(AP) - TOUGH MARKET: Britain's longest-running comic book is facing closure after 75 years in print. The publisher of "The Dandy" said Tuesday it is reviewing all of its magazine titles to meet the "challenges of the rapidly changing publishing industry."
DWINDLING READERS: Circulation of the weekly comic book, first published in 1937 and best-known for cartoon cowboy Desperate Dan and Korky the Cat, dropped to less than 7,500 last year. At its peak in 1950 it sold some 2 million copies.
NOT DEAD YET: Scotland-based DC Thomson stressed it has yet to decide on the future of "The Dandy" but hinted the adventures may continue online.
