Here at Beano, we can’t stop breaking records!

Not only are we officially the Guinness World Records title holder for the longest-running comic published weekly (currently at 3952 editions. Phew!), we’ve also just achieved the title for the largest ‘Finish the Comic Strip’ competition!

So what’s a ‘Finish the Comic Strip’ competition when it’s at home, you may ask?

Well, to celebrate the opening of the completely blam-tastic V&A Dundee, we asked visitors to the museum to complete a specially made Beano comic strip, starring some of our brilliant characters, Dennis, Minnie and The Bash Street Kids. After a lot of scribbling, there were stacks of entries that helped break the record!

Not only that but one entry will be selected to be shown in V&A Dundee itself. What a work of art!

Take a look through some of the entries, plus some bonus ones from’s very own Emma and Ed!
