Also a question, I have Beano Comic Library issue 368, and it's actually called "Picture Library". When did they change from Comic Library to Picture Library (the advert in teh back still calls them "Dandy Comic Libraries" though).

Only a few months before they stopped, I think. Dandy's were never renamed.

does the Beano club special deserve a mention it was basically a fun size Beano you got if you joined the beano club. its two stories were the beano stars go clubbing and the beano stars at the eurolisten song contest.

Also on your list when in fun size beano 298 which i said about it was animal adveture not adventure as you put on the list i didnt make a spelling mistake also 298 seems to be a complete reprint of 109.

from your list
109 BEANO Les Pretend Animal AdVETure Ivy the Terrible Unruly Bully
298 BEANO Les Pretend Animal Adventure Ivy the Terrible Deals with an unruly bully(?)

yeh, number 3 is copyrighted 1991, whereas the Beano's were up to the early 30's by then, so they started a lot later than them

Reprints were common by that point (I think only the puzzles were new in the later issues, those being reprints from Beano Puzzle Book the first time around). I am noting those where I know about them, so I'll add it (and the other new info) when I update again, which will be tomorrow.

More Beano Specials

09 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - A Menace at the court of King Arthur
10 - The Bash Street Kids - Top of the Flops
11 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - How The West Was Fun!
12 - The Bash Street Kids - Blunder Bus

That only leaves number 2..but here it's complicated...it seems that number 3 was the first to be numbered. I thought that number 2 would be a Bash Street Kids (to go with the rest of the pattern), but there's another unnumbered special released at the same time as "Double Trouble", which was "Dennis the Menace - Kids Rule OK!", so it looks like you can number those as 1 and 2 (in either order).

so the full list is



01 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - Double Trouble
02 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - Kids Rule OK!
03 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - The Time Travellers
04 - Bash Street Kids - Roman Rascals

06 - Bash Street Kids - The Beasties from Pluton
07 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - Softyland
08 - Bash Street Kids - Hot SPot
09 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - A Menace at the court of King Arthur
10 - The Bash Street Kids - Top of the Flops
11 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - How The West Was Fun!
12 - The Bash Street Kids - Blunder Bus
13 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - On Holiday
14 - Bash STreet Kids - The Eggsperts
15 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - Grand Prix
16 - Bash Street Kids - School's Out!
17 - Dennis the Menace and Gnasher - Magical Mystery Tour
18 - Bash Street Kids - King Crab

A little late, but I got the page updated. That took a while, since I was adding an entirely new section.

Also, I see why I thought Beano Specials and Superstars were the same thing now - Wikipedia said Specials was renamed Superstars. So I've altered that part of the Beano article to correctly state that Superstars replaced Specials instead.

On my quest to find which issue of Beano superstars is the last (i still think it was 121) i stumbled upn Beano superstars being listed on amazon inlcuding one not on your list Beano super stars 1 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beano-Super-Stars-1/dp/B001621V0Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1315085718&sr=1-1

and it reveals that the story is called Ghastly Ghosties and its a Dennis the Menace one.

also on the note the last few Beano superstars were just stuff from the TV series superstars 75 on your list is the day TV was banned which if i remember correctly was an episode of the 1996 dennis the menace TV series. It also says so on wikipedia so i was right about that.

That's correct, 75 is definitely a TV episode adaptation, but they weren't used every issue yet at that point.

And thanks for identifying the first Beano Superstars.

Looking on ebay for superstars (trying to see what the latest one they have is) and found these which aren't on your list:

4 - Roger the Dodger - The Beano Triathlon
6 - The bash street kids - the friendly computer
12- Roger the dodger- mystery history
13 - Dennis the Menace - Digger Dennis
14 - bash street kids - the something (i cant read the image) school
here is the url see if you can decipher the titlehttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Beano-Comic-Super-Stars-12-Issues-1-6-12-17-/200653300997?pt=UK_Books_comics_Magazines_UK_Comics_ET&hash=item2eb7de6505
16 - roger the dodger -dodge city
17 is cave menace not cave monster
19 - Minnie the Minx - Mod Min
46 - Minnie the Minx - Minxin the sphinx
71 - Dennis the Menace - Dennis ahoy (I'd imagine this is based off the episode of the same name from the 1996 TV series)

Looks to me like 'coach tour'....? But the fact they're on a bus may be influencing my judgement.... :)
