Beano Reprints for Newspaper Inserts

Post by Gnasher68 »

I was wondering if any Beano collectors out there know more information about the Beano comic reprints that were inserted into a newspaper. They are a different format to the regular comic at 290x370mm and is stapled. I was wondering which newspaper they appeared in and when and were they in the newspaper of the same date as the comic?

How many different issues were re-produced?

Any info would be greatly appreciated. I have 4 different issues (#1363, 1440, 1678, 1757) were there others? Were they the same format?

I have a Daily Record with a, I think, four page tabloid sized Beano inside. I remember thinking it was strange as they are a rival publisher. I currently have a London Time Out magazine on ebay with a Beano insert of new material.

Thanks Steve. I got your last Time Out 4pp. These are bigger than the original comic and have been scanned. Can’t find anything on them
