The Rise and Fall of Dandy

December 4, 2012 | by

On December 4, 1937, the first edition of children’s comic book The Dandy was published, also marking the first known use of the speech bubble. Today, the magazine’s seventy-fifth anniversary, marks the final print edition of The Dandy. The speech bubble lives on!

    This is not the first use of a speech bubble, they have been around in comics longer than this lie

    Look in this 1924 comic strip of Felix the Cat

    and this 1913 Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend

    and in this 1700s cartoon

    shoot they sort of exist in this 1506 painting

    How can you make such a glaring error?

    Pleas retract this lie, apologize and display a true history of the Speech Bubble

    Woah, easy, Tory. I think you forgot to take your meds again.
