The internationally well-known Beano cartoon comic book character Dennis the Menace turned 60 today. The original naughty child is known all over the world not just in the Beano but as an international television spin-off series.

When I was young I could almost guarantee a Beano would be in my Santa sack and it would be read from cover to cover in no time and I have grown up with it but it seems that in todays age of technology comic strips such as the Beano are just not bought for children anymore.

Comment on whether you think the Beano is a thing of the past or future.
