The Beano comic #1242 Date - (7th May 1966) Published by DC Thomson

Know as the Eric Clapton Blues Breakers cover


This Beano appeared on the cover of the John Mayall Blues Breakers LP from 1966.

It is said that Eric Clapton did not want to take direction while the cover of the album was being shot, so he brought along a Beano to read. The comic soon became a much sought after issue for both record collectors & comic collectors.
