The second new look issue of Beano is in the shops now. This week's extra-length lead story is Minnie the Minx, guest starring Dennis the Menace and Roger the Dodger in a funny tale of consequences by Nigel Auchterlounie and Nigel Parkinson, with colours by Nika Nartova. The Dennis and Gnasher strip moves to the centre pages for this issue.
This week also sees the return of the activity pages and the mini-strips to Beano, with Angel Face, Dangerous Dan, Skanky Pigeon, Les Pretend, and Betty and the Yeti making their comeback. Plus all the regular full page / two page strips of course, such as Billy Whizz, The Bash Street Kids, and more.
I'm very pleased to announce that Pup Parade will be back for a new series in Beano in the New Year. I'll be writing and drawing it again and this time they'll be half page strips rather than full pagers. That's fine with me though, and I'm very much looking forward to being part of the Beano team once again!
