Britain’s tennis star Andy Murray guest edits The Beano!
Tennis fever hits Britain once again this week with the start of Wimbledon as the whole nation gets behind Andy Murray as he defends his title as Men’s Singles champion.
Andy became the first male British Wimbledon winner for 77 years in 2013 and to make sure he’s on top of his game this year he’s been receiving advice from none other than Dennis the Menace!
Andy guest edits this week’s issue of The Beano and attempts to discover his inner Menace with disastrous consequences! Dennis teaches Andy about being a Menace and how to control his emotions ahead of the 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 (not in court, as her father fears). The issue also features a special “Unleash Your Inner Menace!” Andy Murray supporter’s poster.
The Beano’s (regular) Editor Craig Graham said, “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!”
The Andy Murray guest-edit issue of The Beano goes on sale Wednesday 25th June 2014.
