  • List of Dandy comic strips


    Over the years the British comic magazine The Dandy has had many different strips ranging from humour strips to adventure strips to prose stories. However eventually the Dandy changed from having all these different types of strips to having only humour strips. Prose stories were the first to go being phased out in the 1950s. Adventure strips were phased out in the 1980s.

  • Joe Jitsu


    Joe Jitsu was a British humor comic strip, published in the British comics magazine The Beano, between 2004 and 2006. The comic was voted into the magazine after a poll by Beano readers in early 2004, along with another comic strip, Colin the Vet. Joe narrowly defeated Colin, but both became regulars in the comic, as Joe's victory was by just 1%. The strip, drawn by Wayne Thompson, who was also the artist for The Beano's Billy Whizz and Jak in The Dandy, was about a boy who had a black belt in Karate. Some early strips also featured a man by the name of Johnny Woo, whose plans to get Joe into his dojo were never successful. Joe Jitsu also has a sister, called Jude. It may be seen as a successor to the earlier karate-themed strip, Karate Sid. In 2006, Joe's strip made a reappearance in The Beano. However, this was only a short run as the strips were stockpiled, and after Alan Digby became Beano editor his strip quietly disappeared. Joe Jitsu also appeared in the long story "Custard's Last Stand", which was reprinted in the Bash Street Kids annual 2010, as well as a one-panel cameo in Pluggy Love in the 2008 Beano annual.
