  1. But probably a reprint.... :(

    I want to see Beano Manga and Johnny Bean from Happy Bunny Green back in the comic, they were true humour strips!

  2. Never mind Johnny Bean. What happened to Super School? It hasn't appeared for months. Did Lew Stringer get lured away by his new characters in the Dandy?

  3. On his blog he said he was busy with Team Toxic and his Dandy strips and sadly that probably means Super School has been put on hold, the last one was about a month or two back....

    Johnny Bean and Beano Manga do need to return though, the comic had a funnier edge to it when they were in there.

    Maybe the Beano should take a note from the Dandy and revamp the comic, no more free gifts, new characters, full character roster. Simples :P

  4. You mean exactly what Dandy did, lol. Except Beano would keep more it's current roster (Dennis, Minnie, Roger, and Bash Street are sacred cows, can't axe them. Billy Whizz, Ball Boy, Numskulls and Ivy are probably safe too), and have a lot less of the celebrities.

    What about the logo? It's hardly changed since 1971!

  5. Have any of you guys got the Beano Annual 2011?

    On the inside pages by Laura Howell with Johnny Bean, it says the Beano in the background, anyone thinking this logo looks awesome?
