As of 2006 two comics a month were reprints from the 1990s, but as of 2007 all four are reprints, hardly any new strips featuring.(e.g. In a recent Beano edition, a 2 page Biffo the Bear comic was the only new strip in it.)
If you join The Beano Club, you receive a special version of a Fun Size Beano, called the Beano Club Special. This was originally printed in 1999,and contains some reprints from 1980s annuals, alongside some new strips by Barrie Appleby and Nigel Parkinson. Another two new characters are Stunt Boy drawn by Nick Brennan and Lester the Jester.
