I remember when I was a kid I could walk into a shop with 5p and walk out with the Beano, 8 Freddos, 2 cans of Coke and a packet of wine gums.

Can't do that these days, too many cameras about.

great price! Seen anything for teenage girls too?!

The Beano is now actually £2.50 per issue, not nearly £2 as I begrudgingly bought it for my son today. Thanks for this, great offer!

How much

we did did one of these last year for our youngest, DC couldn’t count the number of issues was a good price became even better. Couldn’t believe how much it costs today though was maybe a tenth of that back when we were kids.

It was 3d when I bought it in the 60s.

This is 80 times more expensive.

I used to run errands for my mum in those days and a loaf of bread cost 1/7, or 8p.

Bread doesn't cost £6.40 a loaf now.

I thought the same when getting it for our youngest and then I did a google, in the 50s it had a circulation of nearly 2 million, today 31k unbelievable really sadly many kids will only see the beano at Christmas as an annualand you can’t even buy a Dandy now, that to gas 2 million circulation in the 50/60s when it finished it had 7k :

Kids don't know what they're missing today, my boys love "proper" comics and have churned their way through my collection.

One has just finished Cor!! and is on to Monster Fun now. Still reads the Beano every week via Readly on the tablet, but he tells me he much prefers the 70s and 80s comics as they are funnier!

Happy days working on all these publications. The halcyon day’s are now long gone.

Do these subscriptions auto renew?
Edited by: "slacker" 2nd Nov

Ah I used to get these in the 80s and early 90s... Beeno, Dandy and Beezer & Topper. Used to love it when there's was a lollipop or chew bar on the front. Pretty sure they cost around 25p or 30p back then!

I ordered the 6 month package and went via Topcashback. So should be getting £4.72 cash back.

Doesnt say what issues you will get, we have a load of recent ones so dont want the same.

Surely it will be ongoing issues, not older ones?

I just checked on the deal page, which states;
"With a Beano comic subscription, you're guaranteed your weekly helping of crazy comic fun by having Beano delivered - FREE - straight to your door, before it's in the shops!"
Edited by: "anglo" 2nd Nov

Thanks to this deal, I remembered that I(?) actually have 33 editions at home that I found when clearing out my sons room x years ago.
I thought they might be worth something but found that they aren't really after I checked an online comic website.
He had(has?) 33 issues from June '94 to September '95 including 1 Xmas one.
Interestingly, the cost at the time started at 35p, increasing to 38p,

Just to point out....this deal does not include free gifts on the magazine. It is just simply for the magazine. Still......great price. Heat added

WOW, Used to love this when a kid,

thanks for this

You missed out one of my favourites - Lord Snooty. Private Eye lampooned David Cameron brilliantly in the same style.

The thunder bang was great,how about that spinner thing that almost cut your fingers off,but i cant remember any others.........help please.
Just found the Flying Snorter and the Lightening Skimmer

Good luck with topcashback I'm still waiting on the £30 from Microsoft deal

Gosh what a huge price now. When I used to be ill & needed a comic (Dandy or Beano) when lying in bed recovering from Chixken Pox or suchlike the comic was 2 old pence with 240 pence to the GBP.
Mind you we are talking about circa 1960 when cash was tight, no foreign holidays or posh nosh just hand me downs & bread & dripping sandwiches with marmite if the weekly budget allowed

Only 2d....................that must have been during the Black Death

I wouldn't get too excited about this. Anyone who remembers The Beano from their childhood (or later) will barely recognise the modern Beano as the same comic they enjoyed years ago. The last time I flicked through one a couple of years ago it was nothing more that a set of adverts for TV programmes and low quality celebrities.

If you want a nostalgia trip, the annuals from the 70s and 80s are available cheaply from charity shops and Ebay. 60s editions though tend to command a premium price as collectors ites.

Even ~12 years ago when I was a kid I remember it being well under £1

Thanks for the tip

Disagree, retro stuff is in so if you are lucky enough to see annuals they cost as much as £5 sometimes more at charity shops (then sit there for months or years)

Anyway

I remember meeting the main artist last year at a comic con and saying I disliked how it was toned down/more politically correct now compared to when I was a kid, such as Dennis no longer being a menace, and the gay bashing Walter rumour which he confirmed to be true and he agreed he wishes it was like it was.
Edited by: "ryouga" 3rd Nov

Used to absolutely love the Beano. I still have most of the weekly comics from the 90's - early 00's. Think it cost 40p - 90p around then. Have a bunch of annuals from the 60's onwards, and the classic special editions they'd release yearly. Probably offload them at some point due to taking up so much space.

Tempted with this just for the nostalgia of it.

Yeah. I remember it being about 30-35p when I used to get it. I'm 32 now so its gone up a lot in the last year or so

I can't get my boys into the Beano, Dandy or Marvel comics. It's sad as I was raised on them and kept an awful lot of them thinking one day if I had children they would love a full childhood collection but neither enjoy reading at all for pleasure.
