DC Thomson teams up with Aardman to bring Morph to The Beano

DC Thomson has teamed up with Aardman to bring Morph, the “nation’s favourite clay character”, to The Beano.

Morph guest stars in The Beano, sharing the cover with Dennis the Menace and Gnasher, and appearing in a specially-commissioned comic strip, which sees Morph escape from Gnasher (who has mistaken him for a sausage) and help Dennis foil a dastardly scheme by Walter Brown his arch-enemy, say the publishers.

Peter Lord, Director at Aardman and creator of Morph, said, “As a huge fan of Dennis the Menace ever since I was a lad (and Gnasher was a pup), I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see our creation Morph starring alongside Dennis in the pages of The Beano. It’s fantastic to see these two iconic British mischief-makers joining forces in my all-time favourite comic.”

The Beano’s Editor Craig Graham said, “We’re delighted Morph has joined Dennis and Gnasher in The Beano, although I’m not sure he knew what he was letting himself in for!

Like Dennis the Menace and The Beano, Morph connects brilliantly with people of all ages. We hope this special issue of The Beano will ignite fond childhood memories for older readers, while our younger audience will love bringing Morph to life with the amazing augmented reality cover.”

The Beano featuring guest star Morph goes on sale Thursday 9th July.
