It seems incredible to think that the comic is coming up for its 80th Birthday, with the first issue arriving on newsagent shelves on 30th July 1938.
It's 2018 and the comic is still going strong, with a whole new generation of artists and authors bringing to life the Beano's enviable collection of miscreants, weirdos and downright cool characters.
Front and centre is Dennis the Menace, with his faithful hound Gnasher - and Dennis shows you some of his insider tricks to being a complete menace in the upcoming "Beano Book of Mischief, Mayhem and Fun" coming soon from Studio Press.
The book is chock full of brilliant makes and projects that'll definitely help you spend your summer getting up to no good (well, in a fairly lighthearted way!)
Construct all manner of amazing contraptions from pencil catapults, to pea shooters, play crazy tricks on hapless adults and don your black and red stripy jersey for japes and hijinks along with a ton of other Beano faves.
|Danny shows you how to build a cool code so you and your friends can communicate in secrecy. No adults allowed!|
|Remember kids, safety first. Never aim any of these at animals or humans!|
The building fun doesn't stop there either, there's also a couple of corkingly brilliant project books from Studio Press.
|Beano Builds Go Kart. Build your own mean machine!|
Karts not your thing? Well surely Dens are...
|Forget playing Fortnite. Get out there and build your own fantastic den!|
Sticking with the 80th birthday celebrations you may also want to grab the latest edition of The Beano Annual too!
|The Beano Annual 2018. 80 years of keeping kids blissfully quiet for hours!|
|Ah Biffo the Bear and Lord Snooty!|
