Back in 1963 Paul McCartney told NME that his ambition was to have his picture in The Dandy.

Upon hearing the news that the comic would cease printing on its 75th birthday, Sir Paul wrote to bosses saying: “The Dandy was a favourite comic of mine when growing up in Liverpool and each week I would look forward to the exploits of Desperate Dan... I feel a little sadness that I see its final issue is appearing in December.

“In 1963, in the NME, when asked what my personal ambition was, I replied – to have my picture in The Dandy! I hope it’s not too late!”

The Dandy’s print editor, Craig Graham, responded, saying: ‘When the decision was taken to stop printing The Dandy and take it online earlier this year, it really was a case of now or never.

'Sir Paul wrote a lovely letter to us, wishing The Dandy well and hoping it wasn’t too late to make an appearance. How could we refuse?’

The last print issue of The Dandy will go on sale on Tuesday and will feature McCartney starring alongside Desperate Dan as well as a host of other famous characters in a farewell sing-along.
