Beano Christmas Special 2017

It's been out for several weeks now, but if you didn't already know, the Beano Christmas Special is in the shops now. 68 full colour pages in the 'bookazine' format with all-new strips and features, plus 20 free stickers!

I don't have a copy myself, and didn't receive any PR about it, but I thought readers of Blimey! should be informed it exists, so I used the image from the D.C. Thomson website for this promotion. 

This isn't the regular Christmas Beano, but an additional special that has been running for a few years now. The festive issue of the weekly Beano will be published in December as usual.

You should be able to find a copy of Beano Christmas Special in the shops, but if your local retailer hasn't ordered it, buy it directly from the publisher here:

My local McColls newsagent, which doesn't usually get these, ordered one copy, which I bought. It was a few more weeks before it turned up in my local WHSmith, which seems to have subsequently sold out despite having a few Beano and Dandy summer specials left.

I bought mine in Tesco last week but I'm saving it till nearer Christmas. Thankfully no crappy toy included!

Those bookazines tend not to have toys included. They look far smarter on the shelves without bulky bags and I'm sure the kids appreciate 20 free stickers just as much, if not more than, a plastic gun that would break after a few uses.
