I just received a reply to an email I sent to BCA, and I though you lot might be interested:
My email – Do you have any plans to digitize and post the remainder of the Andy Capp cartoons in your archives? If you check the comments section of Andy on the GoComics web site, you will see that there is a strong interest in the classic strips. Is there anything we fans can do to make this happen?
Reply from Dr. Nicholas Hiley, Head of Special Collections and Curator of the British Cartoon Archive – _Thanks for your email.
The Andy Capp collection is being digitised piecemeal, as we have the time and opportunity between other projects. This isn’t because we don’t value the collection, but rather because we have limited resources for digitisation and cataloguing.
I am very pleased that there is interest in this collection – I am sure that there will also be fans of our large holding of “Perishers” material as well. I will remind the Librarian that there are many fans waiting for such material to be added, and see if we can move Andy Capp up the list of projects.
With best wishes,
