As it's nearly Christmas, I thought I'd do something different in the world of blogging and have a competition.  (As long as it's not breaking any rules.)  The prize is a pristine, unread copy of D.C. THOMSON's 50th Anniversary book on DENNIS The MENACE, published back in 2001.

Unfortunately, only UK residents can enter, and - as this is a competition for collectors - only over 21s, so no kids please.  (Though you can ask a parent to enter on your behalf.)

Please also note that this competition is not open to fellow bloggers with their own comics sites.  'Civilians' only.

To win this Collecters' item classic, all you have to do is answer the following five questions:

1)  Who was Dennis the Menace named after?

2)  What month and year did he first appear?

3)  Which two other famous comic characters is Dennis's artist Davey Law also known for?

4)  What was the original name of the character from The People's Journal who was transformed into Dennis for publication in the Dennis books?

5)  What other famous comics character was revealed to have a 'Dennis the Menace' haircut in 1999/2000?

Type your answers in the comment box with your real name and age - no further details.  The names of all those with five correct answers will be put into a hat and one will be chosen at random in about 10 days.  I will then post the winner's name, who can contact me with his or her postal details, which will not be published publicly and will be immediately discarded once the book is sent. P.O. Box Numbers are acceptable.  No other contact from me will follow and no personal communication outside of this blog will be entertained.

Competition closes on December 28th, 2011.

Okay peeps, what are you waiting for?  GET TO IT!
