Happy 75th Birthday The Beano 30th July 1938!

























What a great line up of characters...The Beano has worked because of the strong characters and the unchanging quality of it..
The Beano editor thought in the 75th Birthday special £6.99 in WHSmiths or at the DC Thomson shop

He would of liked to have shown this issue in the book But he decided to show the first appearances of characters...so I'd thought it would be fun to show it here...

Another nice thing about The Beano is the artist stayed with the character for years and years and years...it really is impressive...

So well done The Beano and hope you never change..and that is to make us laugh..
