Love it or hate it, old or young! Everyone had heard of or seen a Beano comic. Beano is older than my parents, it began back in the 1930s with thousands of comics and apparel being produced worldwide. The most famous character of course being Dennis the Menace and his sidekick dog Gnasher. Other notable characters include Minnie the Minx and Billy Whizz.
My dad was a keen fan of the Beano when younger back in the 1950s. My brother liked it too, throghout the 1980s and my younger brother through the late 1990s so it’s certainly here to stay. Beano does seem aimed more towards boys than girls so it was never really my thing growing up, but my 13 year old son does enjoy comic books and does enjoy Beano merchandise too.
