Sir Paul McCartney has fulfilled a "personal ambition" by being immortalised in The Dandy.The former Beatle will appear alongside Desperate Dan in the last-ever print edition, which goes on sale tomorrow.
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 (thankfully the ones on his right hand - Sir Paul plays a left-handed guitar).
Trivia - The issue dated April 22, 1950, sold 2,035,010 ? the most popular comic in UK history.
