The Beano at 70
Dennis The Menace has finally made it to university, Dundee University to be precise. At 70, he must be one of the oldest mature students in Scotland. Happy Birthday Beano! The Official 70th Anniversary Exhibition opened in the Lamb Gallery yesterday and runs until 20 September. The material on loan from D. C. Thomson includes work by comic artists Dudley D. Watkins, David Law, Leo Baxendale and David Sutherland. By a strange coincidence, BBC2 has just started a repeat showing of Comics Britannia, originally shown on BBC4.
