Jim McGovern welcomes new Royal Mail stamps

19 March 2012

Dundee West MP Jim McGovern today welcomed a new set of stamps issued by Royal Mail commemorating 10 of Britain’s best-loved comics.

Of the ten, five are much-loved creations from Dundee publishers DC Thomson: the Dandy, the Beano, the Topper, Twinkle and Bunty.

He said,

“This is great news for
Dundee.

“I predict the stamps will prove a hit with customers in post offices across the country.

“People in
Scotland
and across the whole UK grew up with the Beano and the Dandy, the characters are national institutions and Dundonians are rightly very proud of them.

“The fact that half of all the stamps in this set are comics from Dundee is impressive stuff, but richly deserved.”
