This version was only used from October to December 1960.
A version of this logo has been used since 2010 to represent retro content. It's used on all merchandise as well as the annuals, although the website and digital comic use the 2010 logo.
Both this logo and the alternate version were designed by artist Jamie Smart, one of the Dandy's main contributors. While the printed comic ended in December 2012, this logo is also used for it's online continuation.
This logo was first used in 2010 on The Dandy's Twitter page. It was used on the cover of the Dandy comic itself from July 2011 to February 2012, then the covers reverted to the 2010 logo, which remained in use throughout on print adverts and the Dandy website.
