Yes, we're still in summer but D.C. Thomson have revealed the cover to this year's Beano Christmas Special which you can pre-order from their web shop!
The cover art is by Nigel Parkinson and the all-new special will feature 68 pages of strips and activity pages, plus a set of free stickers!
As there was some confusion in the past from some readers I should clarify that this Christmas Special is a stand alone publication. It is not the Annual, and it's not the Christmas issue of the weekly Beano. This Christmas Special will be in the shops months before Christmas, in September.
So... if you feel like getting in the festive spirit while it's still over 20 degrees C outside, pre-order your copy today!
