Have we got some big news for you!

Just when you thought Beano couldn't get any better, we've only gone and got one of YouTube's biggest stars to guest-edit our comic!

Yes, that's right, you heard us - JOE SUGG is coming to Beano! *cue excited Beano sounds!

Turns out, Joe is a MASSIVE Beano fan (as well as being a YouTube superstar, a Strictly Come Dancing contestant, a former Bake Off baker and just an all round lovely guy) so when we needed someone special to help us celebrate Dennis's birthday, it was a no-brainer for us.

So what's in store?

In ‘Birthday Prankaggeddon’ Sugg teams up with Dennis to unleash the ultimate prank on the residents of Beanotown, including a Dennis transformation of his girlfriend Dianne Buswell’s hair. Part of the strip storyline was inspired by an episode of the 1990s Dennis animated series that Joe watched as a child. The comic also features a four-part strip ‘I am Dennis’ which sees the whole of Beanotown unleash their inner Dennis to save their favourite mischief-maker from a dastardly plot by the Mayor and Walter Brown.

The special issue also features a pull-out Menace Family Tree poster which traces Dennis’s heritage and celebrates the many generations of Dennis who have entertained children over the last 70 years. The ultimate collectible for fans, it confirms that Dennis's dad is the 1980s-era Dennis grown-up and his grandad is in fact the original 1951 Dennis. It also reveals some new ancestors of Dennis including Pranks and Prejudice author Jane Aus-Den, rebel Dennis Fawkes and the prehistoric Menacesaurus.
