strips The Beano rejects that makes the final comic so good, and above you can see another idea that didn't make the cut (hence it still being in biro-scribble form).
As well as not featuring the eponymous star (though eagle-eyed readers will have noticed this week's Bananaman story Creepy Pasta also doesn't feature its title character), it was considered too wordy or adult or sunnink. Enjoy, a blog-only lost gem.
