2000TH POST - DENNIS THE MENACE...


Images copyright D.C. THOMSON & Co., Ltd

Wow!  2000 posts!  (2000 too many, some might say.)  So, as
a special treat, here are five DENNIS The MENACE strips from
the very first DTM book, published in 1955 (for '56).  These pages
are drawn by DAVEY LAW, who was the regular Dennis artist
in The BEANO until his death in 1971.

I'm sure they'll provide a chuckle or two as you sup a glass
of lemonade in celebration of CRIVENS! reaching its 2000th
'issue'.  Here's to the next 2000!  (And the 2000 after that.)

What can I say?
Davey Law is my favourite Dennis artist.
2000 posts.
I am currently working on my third.
(I think)

And I'll read it when you've finished it - and leave a comment. I'm that kinda guy.

2000 posts, Kid - woo hoo !! You could have done a post on 2000AD - see what I did there ?

Kid said...

I saw what you did there. Could've done, CJ, but I prefer Dennis, to be honest.

Congratulations on 2000th post, Kid! If I keep on my current routine, I'll be about 85 when I hit 2000. :)

Kid said...

Ta much, Graham. It'll happen before you know it - tempus fugit, and all that.

Congratulations on the milestone, Kid! Keep on doin' what you're doin' - as you say, here's to the next 2000 ( at least )!

HAPPY 2000 TH, Kidda! Congratulations on keeping on knocking them out!
( NO! I don't mean it in THAT way! - Shame on some readers' minds! )
It only seems like 5 minutes ago that it was your one thousandth!
Keep 'em coming!

Kid said...

Thanks Cer and JP. Nice to know my efforts are appreciated.

Arfon Jones said...

Happy 200th sir! (I’m just a few post behind you!) Here's to many more!

Kid said...

And likewise to you, AJ. I'll be looking out for your 2000th soon.

Thanks for sharing. I've been looking online for these great early Dennis strips, do you know if they're available in a collected edition?

There was a Beano & Dandy book in 2011 that reprinted quite a few Dennis strips, in celebration of 60 years of menacing. You should be able to track one down on eBay or direct from D.C. Thomson. There was another Dennis book 10 years before, celebrating 50 years, which is also worth having. Type 'Dennis the Menace' into the Blogger search box at the top left-hand corner of my home page, go through the results, and you should see a picture of it in one of my posts.
