Re: Moose Kid Comics Starts On Friday!

Had a little look at this this morning, will look properly once I find a decent comic reader for Android. Meanwhile, anyone know who did those "adverts" for dangerous holidays? Temples, squids, caves and all that. I can't see a signature anywhere. Oh, the thing with the badgers was funny, I liked t...

Re: Mail on Sunday special issue

It's interesting that Ball Boy, Roger the Dodger and Bananaman are all drawn in different styles though. It certainly is! Who draws them? Bananaman is drawn by Wayne Thompson making it more surprising that he hasn't been drawn in the same style as the weekly comic. Not sure about the other two alth...

Re: Mail on Sunday special issue

Just as a heads up, the new Roger style is the same in the new 12 Apr Beano (sub received yesterday - warned son not to read D&G as the story is continued from the freebie).

Strangely the contents still say it is by Jamie Smart - hope the Jamie one comes back soon, we both love it.

No more Megazine...

Some spoilers below if you can call them that..... Got the latest "BeanoMax/Megazine" through the door this morning and I can't say my son was very impressed. This month we now have "Dennis the Menace and Gnasher's EPIC! Magazine". (maybe Rebellion got twitchy about another "megazine"?) Yes, it has ...

Re: This week's issue Take 2

Anyone else get the wrong battlerz in this weeks issue, 24th Aug (#3699 I reckon)?

Re: 100% Official Dennis the Menace and Gnasher MEGAzine

So, they did publish the wrong date at the back of the previous issue then (I originally assumed it was the recall date that was wrong, until subscriber copies started turning up at the weekend). The Megazine is out every three weeks, MAX was out every four. The shop I bought the weekly Beano from ...

Re: This week's issue Take 2

Well, got a plethora of stuff from the postie today! Got the Dandy summer special that I couldn't get locally. Also got the new D&G Megazine that I missed from the postie yesterday (this seems quite early for subs, no?) And last weeks Beano as well as this weeks one. SPOILER: Wallace & Gromit are in...

Re: This week's issue Take 2

Hmm, still no Beano today, annoying. Have emailed DCT for a replacement. edit: got a reply today: "Thank you for your email. I can confirm this week's edition of The Beano was delayed in going in the post due to a production problem - all magazines were dispatched on Monday and we were asking custom...

Re: The Beano 75 years issue whats inside...its guessing tim

I take it that your Dennis the Menace and Gnasher Megazine came to you via subscription? I also take it that it's using the same barcode to save on paperwork for the stores (and possibly expense for DCT)? Yes came by sub, can't check the barcode just now as my boys have it at granny's tonight. It's...

Re: The Beano 75 years issue whats inside...its guessing tim

And also I note that the D&G Megazine, although splashed as #1 on the cover, in the barcode box we are told it is #80, with the BeanoMax logo next to said box.

Re: The Beano 75 years issue whats inside...its guessing tim

Interesting stuff about the Beano 75th there! We didn't get our Beano, but we did get the D&G Megazine..... I'll try to do some font colour business for those that don't want to know anything.... Well, the main comic bulk is only 24 pages wrapped in an oversized glossy cover, the plastic tat my boy ...

Re: The Beano 75 years issue whats inside...its guessing tim

I'm more inclined to think (cynical though I am) that the seller perhaps has had a better offer than mine after the auction has finished. Still waiting for my refund, even though they emailed me to say they have put it through...not according to my PayPal they haven't and I've had enough dealings wi...

Re: The Beano 75 years issue whats inside...its guessing tim

Yep, very quick to tell me about her run in with the police confiscating her comics, not so quick to reply when I asked for my money back.

Just went straight to dispute in PayPal, I'm not wasting my time.
