Issue 3/10 (#495) of BAMSE just arrived at the office.
For the cover of this issue we have tried a different approach. By parents Bamse is usually seen as a nice carachter that avoids conflicts. But for this cover we decided to show him upset, angry and furious! (His daughter is missing in the lead story and he begins to accuse every crook in sight of kidnapping her. The story itself is a reprint from the 80's.)
Now, let's see if the parents will avoid to pick it up, or if the kids will be curious enough to why Bamse is so upset, that they'll convince the parents to buy it.
Hmm... maybe the parents would prefer a pink background and hearts instad? ;)
