Sacked Dominic Cummings mocked in The Beano in latest humiliation
Dominic Cummings suffered further humiliation following his shock exit from No10 – after being mocked in The Beano.
He and ex-boss Boris Johnson feature in a special edition of the comic written for grown-ups.
Cummings – whose controversial jaunt to Barnard Castle, Co Durham, during Lockdown1 sparked a national outcry – plays a getaway driver.
And comic writers put the boot in by giving him dodgy eyesight.
The PM’s former adviser claimed he had only made the lockdown-busting trip to test his eyes.
Cummings, 48, was seen gloomily trudging out of No10 last week with his possessions in a cardboard box following a reported bust-up with the Prime Minister.
He reappears in an adult BeanOLD (corr) pull-out inside this week’s edition of the regular children’s comic.
Covid-19 fund-raising heroes Captain Sir Tom Moore, 100, and Marcus Rashford, 23, also feature in a satirical special reflecting on the seismic events of 2020.
It shows Dennis The Menace’s dad getting a new job in the Elf Service having lost his job at Wilbur Brown’s factory.
Sir Tom, who raised more than £32million for the NHS by walking laps of his garden, and Manchester United footballer Rashford, who has campaigned for free school meals, visit Beanotown to become honorary MBEs – aka Members of the Beano Elf-Service.
While in town they save Christmas by rumbling Wilbur Brown and Walter Softy’s plan to steal all of the presents.

The PM arrives and helps Wilbur stage his escape.
Cummings acts as their getaway driver.
The comic references him driving with impaired vision.
Elsewhere Dennis’ parents look back on Zoom quizzes, home-schooling, delayed Bond films and toilet roll shortages.
The comic also features an appearance from environmental activist Greta Thunberg, 17, who offers Dennis’ dad advice on how to grow his own Christmas tree.
And there is a cameo from Desperate Dan who makes his first appearance in a comic for eight years.
Dunkirk actor Tom Hardy, 43, makes a guest appearance as Dennis’ mum’s celebrity crush and Christmas present wish.

Mike Stirling, editorial director of Beano Studios, said: "We’ve formed our very own Gnational Elf Service to help spread laughs and keep the nation smiling this winter.
"We love bringing kids laughs every week but 2020 has been so tough that for the first time in 82 years we’ve created a comic that kids can give to adults to share some much-needed Beano LOLZ.’"
The comic – which was first published in July 1938 – continued production throughout World War Two and features stories of The Bash Street Kids and Minnie The Minx, Bananaman and Dennis and Gnasher.
