2015-09-24 14:55:39

A rare copy of the first ever Beano comic has sold for a record £17,300 at auction-over three times its pre sale estimate.

The comic was printed almost 80 years ago in 1938 and is one of only 25 surviving copies known to exist today. 

The sale set a new world record price for a Beano comic, beating the previous record of £12,500 set in 2009.

It was sold by London based auction house Comic Book Auctions.
