The Christmas BEANO (2017)

The Christmas issue of Beano has arrived on the shelves today, and it's a festive fun-feast. It comes bagged with a brilliant Merry Prank-Mas Kit; a box of eight pranks such as fake poo and false teeth. Now, before anyone complains about "bagged tat", remember that the Beano rarely includes any gifts these days. Not as seldom as decades ago, when it only had a free gift in 1960 (the first since 1940) and no more until 1971, but it's still a rare thing for the Beano to have gifts these days.

Inside the comic, there's a wealth of Christmas stories featuring Bananaman, Roger the Dodger, Minnie the Minx, a seven page Dennis and Gnasher story and much more.

As has been the tradition for the last few years, this Christmas issue will be on sale for three weeks, so there won't be another Beano until 27th December. 

The Christmas Beano, on sale now. £4.50
