The special issue, on sale Wednesday 25th June 2014, features Dennis the Menace helping Andy Murray discover his inner Menace with disastrous consequences.
Murray reflected on his week with The Beano in his Editor’s letter. He explained: “Olympic Gold was my proudest moment; becoming the first male British Wimbledon winner for 77 years was amazing, but this might be my greatest title yet… Andy Murray – Editor of The Beano.”
The Beano’s regular editor Craig Graham said: “It’s amazing to think that Andy is the only British man to have won Wimbledon in the entire 76-year history of The Beano. Andy was a great sport throughout his week in charge, and he’s welcome in The Beano office any time… although after his experience with Dennis I’m not sure he’ll want to.”
Andy Murray will appear in the Dennis the Menace and Gnasher strip in which Dennis teaches Andy about being a Menace and how to control his emotions ahead of an upcoming tennis tournament. Elsewhere in the issue, Dennis’s dog Gnasher makes a meal of Murray’s tennis racquet and Minnie the Minx is on court. The issue also features a special “Unleash Your Inner Menace!” Andy Murray supporter’s poster.
The Andy Murray guest-edit issue of The Beano goes on sale Wednesday 25th June 2014.
