Beano expansion

Post by stevezodiac »

Today and yesterday the Daily Star has had interviews with the Beano editor. He mentioned wanting the Beano empire to become bigger than Disney. Also hinted at more Beanold adult sections, maybe each Christmas. Here's the links:

No harm in thinking big! The subtle remoulding of Dennis from Menace to Boisterous Adventurer in recent years has now given him clear space away from Horrid Henry who successfully pinched that crown last decade. At that time I found Dennis to be totally eclipsed but the cartoons have fleshed him out anew.

I always think The Beano should have tried to enter the children's book market with graphic novels based on popular characters.
