Beano Subscribers

My daughter is getting impatient!

We have taken out a subscription. Our first edition should be the March 27 publication. Any other subscribers out there? How long does it take for comics to arrive from the UK?

Re: Beano Subscribers

We subscribed for a while, and they generally arrived fairly quickly.
Though now we rely on grandparents to pop the comic in post.

I used to get Private Eye. It usually arrived a few days after it was available on the shelves in England.

Thanks all. Maybe covid or Brexit is causing some delays. Hopefully it will arrive soon.

These international subscriptions can be a menace. Your daughter is not called Minnie by any chance ?

Re: Beano Subscribers

NickatbaselJnr has a subscription since years to the Beano paid for by his grandparents.

In the beginning, it would arrive just under a week after publication. These days less regular - today we had the 13th and 20th March arrive together.

Private Eye is usually quite regular - and given the passing of Keith, I am wondering what their next front cover will be..

Cheers,
Nick

Re: Beano Subscribers

Thanks Nick.

I had promised to call them if we did not get our first issue by this weekend. But, based on your experience, it seems that this is normal right now. It seems like I will have to put up with endless interrogations for a while longer...

Re: Beano Subscribers

It has arrived! Only 5 weeks for delivery!

It has changed a bit since my day. My daughter loves it though, and I'm happy to see that they still have the Gnasher with the wobbly eyes.
