  3. 3. Similarities and differences• Beano is more for young ages as for the spider man comic is more for older and more mature ages• The animation is different- the drawing styles are different• The spider man comic shows you the publishers logo as for beano it doesn’t because the target audiencewouldn’t care what the publishers logo was• The colours are more dull but the beano one is more colourful because the target audience usually goesthe eye catching comics but the readers of the spider man comic only care about whats inside the comicnot about the colours because they are more mature• The spider man has more developed words that the readers would understand but the beano comic haseasy to read words because the target audience isnt as mature and developed as the spider man comic• The beano comic has free bees because it need something to draw the target audience in but as for thespider man comic all is added it a civil war chapter because that would interest the audience of the comic.
