Biffo was very funny this week...guest star of an old character...I love all this history brought back in a fun way...

Also the following week the Beano will be a 52 page special?

52? That's 16 pages extra, what gives? The anniversary is still six months away, so it's not that.

Interesting times, I wonder if there will be more changes to come and the 52 page special will act as a mini relaunch, or with The Dandy now online they are throwing more money into The Beano as the sole traditional comic in the shops.

One thing that's certain is the price will go up.

Yeah, that issue will probably be £3 instead of the now normal £2. Even more if it has a gift, as the extra quid I just mentioned only accounts for the extra pages.

If it is bigger on a permanent basis it will be good for the artists who have lost work from the Dandy's demise.

If Peter is quoting the next issue page, it's just a one-off special.

Oh man! The 2-page Bananaman and the "Bea's Farts 'n' Ladders" game are also reprinted from last week :(

I guess the Beano Hogmanay bash was a good night!

Ignoring the reprints, I must say that the new editor is doing a great job. It almost reminds of a certain comic that has just gone digital. ;)

My favourite was Biffo the Bear.

I agree SID it's great to see that the last Dandy revamps legacy is living on in The Beano. This is definitely the best shape The Beano has been in for a few years and it's great to see it embrace it's history with the mini strips and behave like a proper comic again.

Also Dennis THE MENACE has finally got his title back at the beginning of his strip again. :D

Dennis also had an extra page this week. Who's this Danny guy they thanked? Sadly, the binoculars seeing to page 19 joke was ruined by it being on page 4 instead of page 3.
