FREE FACSIMILE OF BEANO #1 AT SAINSBURY'S...


It pays to shop around.
This year's DANDY and
BEANO ANNUALS (for
2011) are priced at £7.99
each, but already various
sellers are offering their
own deals on the books.
SAINSBURY'S are only
charging £5 each, but buy
both of them together and
they cost  a mere £8 for
the pair (essentially a
two-for-one offer).

However, whether you
buy it on its own or with
its sister publication,
THE BEANO ANNUAL
comes with a high quality
facsimile of the comic's first
issue from 1938. True, some liberties have been taken with the cover by omitting
the white margin, and the contents are abridged from the original 28 pages to 24,
but it's still a nice little collectors' piece.
 
Run out and but them both NOW!


And for those who want to know what the cover of the first issue
should look like - from my own personal collection - feast your
eyes on the illustration below...
