Beano/dandy comics are weird. They've been stuck in the same humour bubble for 50 years. They're kids comics for boomers.
I used to read them when i was young, and you could pick one from 2001 and it would be exactly the same as one from 2015 or 1973.
I guess that's what happens when your audience always grows out of the stuff. You can just endlessly cycle stories.
