About the Author

Morris Heggie was a key protagonist in one of the greatest rivalries in comic history. As editor of rival comic superpower, The Dandy, for over twenty years, he was charged with imitating The Beano's incredible success. This gave him a unique, privileged perspective on the reasons why The Beano became a publishing phenomenon. Morris is widely regarded as one of Britain s leading comic historians. He coordinated the creative team who researched and wrote The History of The Beano.
