Re: Beano to get CGI revamp for YouTube generation

Both of you, how old are your kids? They're obviously aiming at a pretty young target audience. Boys, 8 & 11. I would say this was the target audience given it is airing on CBBC and not CBeebies (and Dennis seems to have turned into a "tweenager" for some reason). Both big comics fans (natch). Youn...

Re: Beano to get CGI revamp for YouTube generation

Well, my kids begged me to turn it off half way through.

"This isn't funny..." exclaimed "Dennis".

Never a truer word spoken.

Re: Wish Lists...

How's this then? We all put up lists of what we're after that's eluded us for some time, and we can all help each other out by keeping a look out at comic fairs, charity shops, car boot sales or even online and suchlike? We might even have what folk are after in our own collections... I'll start wi...

Re: Viz Tat

Hope someone can help me out here. I remember having a right old chuckle at something along the lines of this, must have been around 2000-2004 or thereabouts, I've looked through all my VIZ issues I can find but I seem to have stashed those years somewhere in a box I can't find during a couple of ho...

Re: What's in store for The Beano?

So much for the big news?! Is anyone elses Beano's pages all screwed up? Page 3 starts with the mini strips (King of the Ring etc) The Bash Street Kids straddle page 10 and on it's opposite after the staples page 27. The middle pages are just the single pagers Holly Wood and Bananaman. Similarly, Th...

Re: Price rise next week.

Our sub copy that came today (dated 25th Oct) already has £2.20 on the cover. May be another bagged spectacular this week though for the shops, who can tell these days when loyal subscribers are so poorly thought of :roll: (my main gripe is that when I took the subscription out we used to get exactl...

Beano "lite" for subscribers

:soapbox: Forgive me if this sounds like a bit of a rant, but I cannot help but feel a bit miffed when my sons and I spotted the latest bagtastic Beano (26th July) in the supermarket last night. Clearly there is now one Beano for loyal subscribers - the comic only - and another for shop buyers, bagg...

Re: Beano and Dandy summer specials out now!

The specials finally turned up at my local WH Smith. Also, Asda has the Beano one (but not the Dandy). I bought both. Considering the very tight deadline the two specials were produced under, you wouldn't know it. They look great! The stickers are in my copy, bound between pages 2 and 3. Yes, the r...

Re: Beano and Dandy summer specials out now!

On holiday in the Borders just now, just checked WH Smith in Berwick upon Tweed and they have a plentiful supply of both specials (with the stickers), last years last ever Dandy special and the mighty 2000ad Sci Fi Special (which I just finished reading and thoroughly enjoyed it, roll on the new win...

Re: Beano and Dandy summer specials out now!

Definitely no stickers in mine. Also, a poor typo on one of the puzzles my son noticed as he was doing them (safe in the knowledge that he's not spoiling his collection as a replacement is on its way :D ). Pages 28-29, 13 across - oh dear, the answer doesn't quite fit in there unless we move the pre...

Re: Beano and Dandy summer specials out now!

Just had the Beano special delivered - no sign of the Dandy one however, even though I ordered them at the same time (the advice given to me was to return the two individual comics to a freepost address and I would have the money refunded, so I also ordered the double pack).

Re: Beano and Dandy summer specials out now!

Bah, I bought them individually yesterday and no discount was taken off (I never saw the double pack when I clicked through on the link from Lew's blog), I've emailed them about getting my 3 quid back, or just cancelling the order and redoing it. I wasn't aware of any double pack when I wrote my bl...
