Portico Designs has produced a retro-style Dandy and Beano calendar for 2013.
The vivid designs showcase landmark issues of DC Thomson's iconic kids' comics including well-known characters such as Dennis & Gnasher, Minnie the Minx, Bananaman and Desperate Dan.
Each month also provides a mini biography of the featured titles and characters.
Licensing Agent Ian Downes, from Start Licensing, said: “Portico Designs has made great use of the Dandy and Beano archive to produce a calendar that reflects the history of the comics, and it sits well alongside other products such as Card Mix’s greeting cards, Ashley Wilde’s bedding, Lagoon Games and Wild & Wolf.
"Dandy and Beano artwork is unique and resonates well with consumers. We are seeing an increased interest in the comic art, which I think we are capitalising on well with a growing base of active licensees."
