The Beano celebrates Red Nose Day 2015 with a special cover

The cover features the many faces of Dennis the Menace in a pop-art inspired design, based on a vintage annual cover.

To celebrate Comic Relief’s ‘Make your face funny for money’ campaign this year, The Beano has had a red nose makeover. 

The red and gold pop art cover shows Dennis the Menace’s range of emotions while modelling all the different red noses you could buy to support the charity. 

To celebrate the special issue, the cover also features a rarely-used gold metallic ink.  The ink is used by the title to mark significant occasions, and has only been used once before, to celebrate Jessica Ennis-Hill winning Gold at the 2012 Olympics.

A funny face contest takes place at the Bash Street School, with Dennis enlisting the help of naughty dog Gnasher, and a shock turn of events when Lord Snooty is disqualified for cheating. We won’t spoil the suprise by telling you who wins the contest! 

The Beano Editor Craig Graham said, “This week’s special issue sees The Beano celebrating all things Red Nose Day.  We want to encourage our readers to get involved with the ‘make your face funny for money’ campaign, and Dennis and the gang show them how to do just that, albeit in the most mischievous way possible.”

The special Red Nose Day issue of The Beano goes on sale Wednesday 11th March 2015. Red Nose Day returns on Friday 13th March. For more information on Red Nose Day, go to rednoseday.com
