It is actually possible to get a 1942 original for less than 120 notes as this car crash is living proof just about the price I hear you ask? £5 but it's gonna take a lot of work to bring this back from the brink....
The one on eBay went for £180.

I recently won this in the summer compal comics auction unlike the portfolio edition reprint this is full size with plain white back cover and the Whoopee Hank this book belongs to illustration on the fly page the auction blurb stated it was produced by DCT themselves in 2004 and only a small number where produced. This reprint has the same card like paper like the original and actually feels like the real deal unlike the portfolio edition which is much smaller and slimmer in comparison

As far as I understood it, that was an unauthorised reproduction? The production of which actually lead to Thomsons producing their own to try and stop people cashing in on illegal reprints.

The portfolio editions reprint was an autorised product as the then Beano editor Euan Kerr signed all the limited edition certificates that came with the book. The one I won in the compal comics auction is also an authorised book being published by DCT themselves and only 5 where produced of the 1940 annual they also produced full size facsimiles of the Beano Book 1941-42 and Magic Beano Books 1943-50. I have been told the full size reproductions where for in house use only but some managed to make it into the public domain whether or not this is true I do not know

You don't say, koollectablz, whether Thomsons took the unauthorised reproducer to court or not. They would have had every right to do so, plus the necessary financial clout, and would surely have won their case anyway. A significant fine for misappropriation of copyright material could well have put the unauthorised reproducer permanently out of business. For the record, as my pocket and I didn't feel the need to acquire an original, my copy is the one produced by portfolio editions.

Well the plain yellow rear cover does at least match the yellow on the front cover, and there is also a fair amount of yellow on the narrow illustration on the spine.
