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.
