DC Thomson has introduced a digital subscription service for The Dandy and The Beano through Apple's Newsstand.

The apps are free to download via iTunes and also come with free issues of the comics, so that users can see the content they'll get in advance, along with instructions of how to subscribe or download. Payment is via the user's iTunes account.

Digital copies are enhanced with interactive advertising, video and links to the existing Beano and Dandy websites.

"The great thing about the new app on Newsstand is that it guarantees our fans can enjoy The Beano 24-7," said Mike Stirling, editor in chief of The Beano. "I used to read The Beano snuggled up under the covers with a torch at night - nowadays I'll just cuddle up to my iPhone."
