Anyone for menace? Adults’ Beano is comic relief

BEANO fans who thought they were too old for comics can now enjoy a special edition for adults — to bring cheer during the pandemic.

Instead of Dennis the Menace, Minnie the Minx and the Bash Street Kids, the BeanOLD features Dominic Cummings, Captain Sir Tom Moore, Boris Johnson and Marcus Rashford.

Available as a pull-out inside the regular Beano, out today, it sees Dennis the Menace’s parents look back on Zoom quizzes, home-schooling and loo roll shortages.

Sir Tom and Rashford visit Beanotown, while Cummings acts as a getaway driver — without wearing glasses. A Beano spokesman said: ‘We love bringing kids laughs but 2020 has been so tough, for the first time in 82 years we’ve created a comic that kids can give to adults.’
