Synopsis of The Beano Book 1982:

The Beano is a long running British children’s comic, published by DC Thomson. The comic first appeared on 30 July 1938 and was published weekly.

Its characters include Dennis the Menace, Minnie the Minx, The Bash Street Kids, The Numskulls, Roger the Dodger, Billy Whizz and Ball Boy.

The style of Beano humour has shifted noticeably over the years, though the longstanding tradition of anarchic humour has remained.
