Late 50's and 1960's Beano fun logo mastheads





















I like this one a lot by Leo..:)

Leo Baxendale has of course done some very good logos..mastheads..








A nice logo by Dudley D. Watkins. Has some echos to the new Lord Snooty the Third logo by Nigel P.


Jim Petrie did some great logos different every week as well..sometimes the logo blended into the background of the picture.




A lovely fat horse..


Davy Law did some nice logos changing every week...this is when the logo showed a bit of the story.


Ron Spencer has done some super Little Plum logos.




David Sutherland has done some wonderful Bash Street logos and still drawing a different one today. The king of logos!!


Always liked the spinning top logo...







The Three Bears had some very memorable logos..maybe its because it made you hungry...drawn with relish by Bob McGrath.

What is fun about logo mastheads is it gives the artist a chance to be surreal...wacky..fun..
Maybe Todays Beano can bring back some mastheads fun...Ball Boy...Minnie the Minx..for example look a bit samey and could do with a change.
Lord Snooty the Third is good...Johnny Bean and of course Fred's Bed..
The Bash Street kids has the best logos in The Beano.

I use imageshack to upload images which give you the option to upload it different sizes...

ImageShack

resize image? 100x75 (avatar)
150x112 (thumbnail) 320x240
(for websites and email) 640x480
(for message boards) 800x600
(15-inch monitor) 1024x768
(17-inch monitor) 1280x1024
(19-inch monitor) 1600x1200
(21-inch monitor) optimize without resizing

These are the different options I use.. 15-inch for comicsuk forum which is smaller and for my blog and the beano and dandy forum 17-inch which is bigger.

I don't use photobucket so can't help you there..

This is not the last time Biffo the Bear and the Three Bears crossed there is a memorable strip in the 1979 special where they swap house and Biffo lives in a cave and the Three Bears live in Biffo's house. If you want i can scan it in for you then email it. It is a cracking story.

Thanks
