Shark Infested Beano

It’s the school summer holidays, which means The Beano is packed with even more laughs than usual! This week it comes with five special gifts – a ‘Where’s Dennis?’ Poster, a pea shooter, some sweets, some stickers and some trading cards.

The Beano – £2.99 in newsagents now!

Plus there’s the usual menacing mayhem from all the Beanotown regulars: Dennis The Menace is bowled over, it’s just not Cricket for Billy WhizzMinnie The Minx is behaving herself for once, there’s boxing clever in The Bash Street Kids, Bananaman takes the Bananamobile for a test drive, Tricky Dicky has his bubble burst and Roger The Dodger finds the piano is not his forte.

There’s also a four page sporting special featuring all the Beano gang in ‘The No Common Sense Games’, a Monster Truck Mayhem wordsearch, a colouring page, Tricky Dicky’s School Pranks, How To Make An X-Wing Fighter from stationary and a Menacecraft Spot The Difference.

My involvement this week comes through writing duties on Hunt Emerson’s  Little Plum, in a strip called Baby-Face Bravo (as it’s loosely based on the film Rio Bravo) and Barrie Appleby’s  Gnasher & Gnipper in Gnaws!

Gnaws: We’re gonna need a bigger Beano.

There’s more fin-tastic shark-related laughs in The Beano soon, as I stood in on writing duties while Bash Street School is closed for the summer. Look out for The Bash Street Kids in Jaws 5 toward the (shark) tail end of summer!

The Beano is available in Sainsbury’s, WH Smith, Asda and all good newsagents now, priced £2.99.

The Beano and The Dandy Summer Specials, (which I also worked on, fans) are also out now, priced £4.99 each.
