*Humour Comics: The veteran DC Thomson humour weekly, Beano, is the focus of our Long Hot Summer event this week, with a spectacular array of oversized Specials dating from 1965 onwards. Following the success of 1963’s Dandy-Beano Summer Special, it was decided to give both titles their solo Specials, launching what became a British institution for generations. We open our Beano selection with 1965’s Summer Special, the second Beano solo, in a very attractive VG condition; minor spine and corner wear, but sound and clean pages with no creasing, stains, scribbles or discolouration. We then have a consecutive run from 1966 to 1977, in affordable grades ranging from FA to VG/FN, a shorter consecutive run from 1979 to 1982, and a final selection from the turn of the century, 1998 through to 2002, in higher grades averaging VF. Depicted is the star of this update, Beano Summer Special 1965, VG £65, but rest assured, there’s affordable Summer fun and frolics with Little Plum, the Three Bears, Billy Whizz and all the gang in our online catalogue listings!
