Ennis the Menace to grace cover of The Beano

OF course, we should have predicted it. Move over Dennis the Menace; it’s time for ‘Ennis the Menace’, as Olympic gold medal winner, Jessica Ennis, is poised to be immortalised on the front cover of The Beano comic.

And her appearance – on, says publisher, DC Thomson, a “special gold cover” celebrating the success of British athletes at the Olympics – will be on newsstands from Wednesday.
