To mark 80 years, Art & Hue brings Beano’s pop art collection

DC Thomson has teamed up with Art & Hue for a pop art collection that celebrates the classic British comic series “Beano.” The association also celebrates the comic’s 80th anniversary.

The collection will feature notable characters from the children’s comic including the Beano, his dog Gnasher, the Bash Street Kids, Minnie the Minx, Lord Snooty, Roger the Dodger, and Biffo the Bear.

Art & Hue delves into vintage issues to create 12 new stylish and minimal art prints featuring the much-loved comic-strip heroes, all available in a choice of 3 sizes and 18 colours.

The full alphabet of letters is available with, or without, personalization to add a name or place for a special bespoke touch.

The artworks are printed on museum-quality archival card of 310gsm, made from 100% cotton, using fine art pigment inks which will last hundreds of years.

The collection is now available online at —

First published in 1938, Beano has delighted generations of readers for 80 years.
