RECOMMENDED READING: BATMAN & THE BEANO - TOGETHER...

Okay, so they were only together in my carrier bag yesterday,
but having reeled you in with that devious deception, stick around
and read the rest of the post. First up is TALES Of The BATMAN,
featuring the stories of writer ALAN BRENNERT and illustrated by
a host of artists. It's a slim volume, containing all of Alan's work for
DC COMICS, and is available from FORBIDDEN PLANET
and all good comic mag shops and bookstores.

Next up is BEANO Annual 2017, available, if you're lucky,
from WH SMITH for only £1.99, depending on whether your
local shop has any left obviously. However, the branch I was in
yesterday had around a dozen copies, so yours may be similarly
stocked. I decided to purchase it because it's the first Annual
with the new masthead (without the article), so it's sort of
a collectors' item. Buy one if you can.
H'mm, just noticed that the cover design resembles MARVEL's
