DENNIS'S FIRST CHRISTMAS...
The above three-quarter page strip from 1951 was the first one to feature DENNIS The MENACE in a 'Christmas' setting. That this was early in his BEANO career is attested by his diminutive size. Later on, when artist DAVEY LAW was under pressure, Dennis became elongated because of the speed at which Law was compelled to draw him. He eventually shrank back down a bit, but here's the Menace before he first gained the look that made him appear as if he'd been on the rack.
