Paul McCartney to appear in final Dandy comic
Beatles legend Paul McCartney has finally achieved his dream of appearing in his favourite comic book nearly 50 years after he had declared it as his "personal ambition"
The former Beatle will appear alongside his favorite character Desperate Dan in the last-ever print edition of The Dandy.
According to publishers DC Thomson, Sir Paul got in touch after they announced the end of the comic in August.
He wrote: "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 was a favourite comic of mine when growing up in Liverpool and each week I would look forward to the exploits of Desperate Dan and his other comic book colleagues."
Sir Paul will be seen grimacing as Desperate Dan, unaware of the strength of his formidable handshake, crushes the bass player's fingers, the BBC reported.
He then leads 50 of the comic's most famous characters in a sing-along version of Hey Jude.
