This is the year of the superhero … and our heroes wear stripes! In the Beano Annual 2022, Minnie the Minx dons her cape once more as Batmin, to dispense her own brand of hilarious justice to bullies and grown-ups alike. Dennis and Gnasher must stop Walter’s diabolical plot to create the “Ultimate Menace” as he tries to take over the town! And Beanotown’s top spy, Dangerous Dan, seeks to uncover an enemy agent in our awesome long story ‘Spy Hunter’!
The Dandy Annual 2022 celebrates the winter Olympics … and this year it’s taking place in Dandytown! Korky the Cat and Winker Watson bring together all of their friends, from Desperate Dan and Brassneck to Beryl the Peril and Blinky, to compete in some of the silliest sports you’ll see, such as snowman building, ski jumping and even curling!
The Beano & Dandy Gift Book 2022 is a carefully curated collection of classic comic strips will have readers young and old laughing through decades of some of the very best stories from the comedy cast on display.
Join fan favourites including Dennis and Gnasher, Minnie the Minx, Desperate Dan, Beryl the Peril, The Bash Street Kids – and many more – as they make an exhibition of themselves in their trademark anarchic style.

Proving popular with readers, Oor Wullie’s wee dug has his very own weekly ministrip in The Sunday Post fun section. This Annual is a must-have for fans of Oor Wullie and The Broons!
