The Dandy

the dandy comic

I was browsing through a bookshop with a couple of friends when I
chanced upon this comic – The Dandy! I remember reading this in the
Sibu Public Library when I was in primary school. I instantly
recognized the familiar Desperate Dan character from the cover. He’s my
favorite character in The Dandy.

I remember The Dandy used to be much thicker. It’s just a couple of
pages now. I haven’t read this for more than a decade and decided to
pick one up, just for nostalgia’s sake. It has a Yu-Gi-Oh StickerPop
free with the issue and I misread the date of publication for 17th
January 2003 and wanted to see if it was still edible after more than a
year. Yeah, I like doing things like this. :p

It was actually the 17th January 2004 issue…I only noticed that
when I took the photo just now. Oh well, it would be fun to read
anyway. This comic (graphic novel, it’s not) retails for RM 5.50. One
thing I noticed about comics is the level of detail each frame has,
unlike the spartan manga drawings. You see details that you haven’t
noticed before with each re-read.

Anyway, the StickerPop is definitely edible and it came with this
sticker of some Yu-Gi-Oh character. I guess that’s why they call it a
StickerPop. I love this strip with Desperate Dan eating his trademark
cow pies (the pies has horns and a tail sticking out of it) that his
overworked aunt churns out:

One of the simple pleasures in life – eating the Tutti Frutti Flavor
Yu-Gi-Oh! StickerPop (with chewy candy center) while reading The Dandy.
Sweet nostalgia.

  15. The Nexus One uses an Adreno 200 GPU which is the weakest GPU among the high-end Android smartphones. The Droid 1 has a PowerVR SGX GPU, the same kind the iPhones have, and it’s much faster than the Adreno 200. If you’re going to compare against the iPhone 4 (PowerVR SGX 535), use a phone with hardware more on par with that phone. The Droid X/Droid 2 use the PowerVR SGX 530, the Galaxy S phones use the PowerVR SGX 540, and the Desire HD and G2 use the Adreno 205 which is close to the performance of the PowerVR SGX 540.
