I haven't had time to go into town to pick up the latest Beano yet but as Peter Gray revealed on his blog last Saturday, apparently it's a record breaker as the longest running weekly. It's also issue 3800, which is no mean feat either!
Over on The Beano's Facebook page there are photos of long-time Bash Street Kids artist Dave Sutherland making a visit to The Beano office to unveil a plaque celebrating the significant record-breaking issue. Dave has been drawing The Bash Street Kids since 1962, which is surely a record-breaker in itself? (Longer than Percy Cocking's 43 year run on Weary Willie and Tired Tim for Chips.)
The Beano has now been running since 1938 and long may it continue!
