Beano Annual 2019 - Cover revealed

D.C. Thomson have today revealed the covers of Beano Annual 2019, which goes on sale around August of this year.

The covers feature artwork by Nigel Parkinson and include iconic characters such as Dennis the Menace, Billy Whizz, and even Big Eggo. (In case anyone was wondering, no I didn't draw the Big Eggo strip inside it. This book was done and dusted long before I was commissioned to do the character for the weekly.)

The Beano celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, and the annual's cover reflects that. 

You can follow The Beano on Twitter:

...and at their website:

...and of course by buying the Beano comic every Wednesday!

Looks good. ☺
I've written quite a big chunk of this. Plenty of classic characters are in it. Eggo, Biffo and so on. Should be a treat for old collectors and kids alike.

Good stuff, Nigel. I'm sure it'll do well!

Love the Minnie the Mix image on the back of the annual.

Yes, nice touch, that.
