Have we got some AWESOME news for you! 

The world’s most blamtastic comic (Beano, obvs) is teaming up with superstar footballer and bestselling author, Marcus Rashford! 

Yeah, that’s right – you read that correctly, but we’ll say that name again in case anyone didn’t hear... 


Seriously. How cool is that? 

Marcus will guest-edit the comic in a super special edition released on July 27th, 2022 and will see the hotshot striker immortalised in Beano cartoon form and creating mischief and mayhem alongside iconic characters such as Bananaman, Billy Whizz and The Bash Street Kids. 

And if you think we’re excited, you should hear what Marcus has to say! 

He told us: “I jumped at the chance because this is a great opportunity for you to get to know me a little better and understand all the things that are important to me. I brought my friends from Macmillan Children’s Books and NatWest along for the journey too to help me pull together some exciting activities.” 

Marcus guest-editorship was inspired by Marcus and Beano’s shared mission to unlock reading for fun. The special edition of Beano celebrates the launch of Marcus’ new book, You Can Do It: How to Find Your Voice and Make a Difference, written with Carl Anka and published by Macmillan Children’s Books. 

The special guest editorship is also part of NatWest’s Thrive programme, created in partnership with Marcus and the National Youth Agency. The programme aims to help 6-16 year olds become more financially confident and realise their full potential through a series of interactive group workshops and peer-to-peer sessions. 

So, if you want to find out what Marcus and his new mates will be getting up to, make sure to grab yourself a copy of Beano as soon as you can!
