Take a peek inside this 1980's annual, filled with classic comic strips and adventure stories!

1981 Beano Annual

Most Beano annuals were actually produced 18 months in advance of their release date, due to the sheer number of annuals published by DC Thomson. All the annuals were printed on the same presses, so the schedule was very tight.
