The Beano is a record breaker

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

A world record was set as part of the V&A cel­e­bra­tions yes­ter­day – with the help of a spe­cial edi­tion of the Beano.

Around 13,000 copies of the comic spe­cially drawn for the launch of the new mu­seum were avail­able to vis­i­tors to the 3D Fes­ti­val.

Peo­ple were given the op­por­tu­nity to draw their own end­ing to the strip – with one win­ning de­sign to be dis­played in the V&A Dundee.

And it re­sulted in a new Guin­ness World Record, with more than 650 comics be­ing filled in – the world’s largest ever “fin­ish the comic” com­pe­ti­tion. Yes­ter­day Craig Glen­day, ed­i­tor in chief of Guin­ness World Records and from Dundee him­self, said: “It has been a huge suc­cess. There was more than dou­ble the num­ber of comics re­quired and the record was smashed.”
