Orders are open for the 2023 Beano and The Dandy Annuals on the DC Thomson web shop – and you can grab both as a Double Trouble Pack – and get a fabulous free poster, too.
In the Beano Annual 2023, as ever, Beanotown is the place to go for mischief and mayhem because it’s the place where kids rule! The parents and the teachers of Bash Street School might think differently, but the kids from the longest-running weekly comic in the world know the truth… as they’ll prove in 112 pages of brand new, awesomely funny stories! This year’s cover is by Nigel Parkinson, working with BEANO designer Leon Strachan.
Join Desperate Dan, Keyhole Kate, Winker Watson, Cuddles & Dimples, Corporal Clott and all their friends in the The Dandy Annual 2023, as they team up for 112 pages of brand new, hilarious comic strips. This year’s cover is by Laura Howell, working with BEANO designer Mark McIlmail.
This Double Trouble Pack is the perfect gift for kids (of all ages), with the return of longtime favourite Biffo the Bear in the BEANO annual, drawn by Lew Stringer, another reason to take advantage!
Lew has drawn eight Biffo mini-strips for the new BEANO Annual.
“It was fantastic to work on a character that was such a familiar part of my childhood,” he says. “The iconic bear first appeared in The Beano in 1948, replacing Big Eggo as a cover star (Big Eggo being another character I’ve worked on, for the weekly Beano a few years ago).”
