Wonderful news about the Beano annual reprints, See Lew's blog for more info.

Some help please I've ordered 1962 because its my birthday. In regards to 1963 can anyone advise if it has art by Leo Baxendale and Ken Reid in it?

Great idea.

What an incredibly cheap way to get a replacement spine for any of the originals too!

The 1963 annual, with the bash street kids on the cover, does have Ken Reid art in it.
I don't think it has Baxendale though. Comparing it to the 1961 annual the Little Plum, Minnie and Bash Street Kids strips look like they're by a different artist.

This is a bit of a vexed question TCT. Leo always said that he drew the Loch Ness strip etc for the 1963 Beano Book and that's why I credited him with the same in 'The Beano Diaries'. I think we have to see it as transitional work by Leo with possibly some additions by Dave Sutherland who, within six months of this strip being drawn, would become the regular Bash St artist on Leo's departure from the Beano.

Speaking of these reprints the only one I've ordered is the edition for 1962 as it will make a nice present for my kid brother who was born in that year.
