The BeanoMAX was a monthly Britishcomic published by D.C. Thomson & Co. Ltd It was a spin-off of the UK comic, The Beano. Each issue had 40 pages and at the end of its run cost £3.99. The first issue was published on February 15, 2007 and was a Comic Relief special. The BeanoMAX title ceased with issue #79 in June 2013, and the following issue #80 was rebranded as 100% Official Dennis the Menace and Gnasher Megazine.
Most of the strips in BeanoMAX also star in the weekly Beano. However, some of these started in the weekly, and also starred in BeanoMAX, but ended up being removed from the weekly (still showing sometimes, but only once every few months) and carrying on in the 'MAX, for example, the Neds. There are now only two original strips in the monthly comic which have never appeared in the Beano.
A list of strips:
The logo has always been a combination of the old Beano logo (from 1977–1998), slightly updated with the help of computer technology, and a blue, graffito style MAX alongside it. The original logo had the Beano logo as it was on the weekly comic, with the MAX overlapping it slightly at the right. In late 2007, the MAX part of the logo started to grow in size. It was almost twice the height as the Beano logo at one point. In 2008, for 3 issues in the summer, the logo changed so that the MAX was predominant to the Beano logo. Instead of the Beano logo running horizontal, it was now vertical, alongside the MAX which was by now on a diagonal bar. After these 3 issues, the BeanoMAX logo changed back to the style it had gained in late 2007. In 2009, the logo changed again, with the Beano logo directly above the MAX logo.
