This summer the University of Dundee is hosting the official 70th birthday exhibition about Britain's favourite comic The Beano. This will be a unique opportunity to see original artwork from from the very first issue up to today. The material has been loaned by D C Thomson and most of it has never been shown in public before - including work by legendary artists such as Dudley D Watkins, David Law, Leo Baxendale and David Sutherland.
On 30th July we celebrated the Beano's birthday with a special event attended by Beano artists, writers and editors, old and new!
During the exhibition we've been inviting visitors to create birthday drawings for us - the best ones are on display as part of the show.
