The Christmas TOXIC

The Christmas issue of Toxic is published today, and you'll find it in a shiny foil bag in newsagents and supermarkets all over the UK. This festive issue comes complete with several gifts including a blaster and powder to make your own green slime. 

The magazine itself has 40 full colour pages packed with features, activity pages, and strips.

The long-running Team Toxic, written and drawn by myself, is entitled Green Christmas and features the debut of Grumpy McGrumpychops, Comics Critic...

The villain of the story is Mister Nostril, using his never-ending runny nose to create bogie snowflakes! Can Team Toxic stop him? 

The other two page strip is Captain Gross by Russ Carvell, with the stinky superhero visiting the North Pole, and there's also the Ruined Ronaldo strip drawn by Steve McGarry, plus fun features on Greatest Minions Moments, When Animals Celebrate Christmas, Thor Ragnarok, and more...



Toxic No.298 is on sale from today until 19th December and costs £4.99.

Always seems daft, the Christmas issue not being the last one before Christmas.

Nope. What would be daft would be the next one being the Christmas issue, when it'll only be on sale for five days before Christmas, and two weeks afterwards. Perils of a magazine that comes out every three weeks I'm afraid.

My story in the next issue has plenty of snow in it though, if that helps.

Hah! I think I love Grumpy McGrumpychops.

Lew Stringer said...

Good to hear! He'll be back in issue 300!

Agreed, Grumpy looks like a break out character. Will you be giving him the "Bizarro" treatment at some point?

Lew Stringer said...

Anything's possible. I'm aiming to use him a few times over 2018 but not too much or it'll alienate readers who aren't comic collectors.

Traveller28 said...

Sounds like a plan, good sir!
