Becks teams up with Fergie in Beano.

DAVID BECKHAM and Sir Alex Ferguson are among the cast of celebrities making an appearance in the 75th anniversary issue of comic book The Beano, it has been revealed.

DC Thomson, the Dundee-based publishers of the celebrated title, have released a sneak peek at the footballer's comic strip encounter with his former boss, before the issue goes on sale on Wednesday.

In 'Dennis the Menace and Gnasher and David Beckham!', Beckham decides to move to Beanotown. An undercover Dennis the Menace helps him find a home. The only problem being that it is beside Sir Alex Ferguson's new house.

Beckham played for a decade under Sir Alex during his time at Manchester United.

The Beano editor-in-chief Mike Stirling said: "David Beckham features quite a lot in the anniversary issue and I think that the strip with David Beckham and Sir Alex Ferguson is brilliant.

"Dennis is up to his usual menacing and the results are hilarious. It pokes fun at their history in a lighthearted way and, of course, it's all meant in jest."
