Skyjack Publishing, run by Matt Yeo, the brains behind Egmont's TOXIC title and producers of The Official Ben 10 Magazine have just launched Megaton – an all-new video game magazine for kids aged 8–12.
Priced at £2.99, the magazine features a 16-page section of Cartoon Network US-produced comics, but knowing Matt we're sure he'd love to get some British stuff in there at some point - so here's hoping!
Packed with the latest video game reviews and characters, as well as exclusive Cartoon Network comic strips, brain-scratching puzzles and amazing competitions, the 100-page Megaton will be on sale every four weeks.
The magazine includes fantastic multiple paper-based gifts to collect, from sticker sheets and posters to 3D card models and trading cards. Megaton 1 includes a free Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom A4 sticker sheet (featuring 30 stickers), a double-sided LEGO Indiana Jones 2/Bakugan Brawlers A1 poster, and an A4 card model sheet for kids to make a cool character from the hit Cartoon Network TV show, The Secret Saturdays
"Megaton is the only magazine in the children’s market that offers 100 pages of pure gaming and comic content," says Matt, SkyJack Publishing’s Managing Director. "We’ve created a truly exciting magazine that showcases kids’ favorite characters and brands in a unique and innovative format, and it’s one that also offers parents real value for money."
"The addition of officially licensed Cartoon Network comic strips is fantastic news for us and our readers," he continues, "as it will bring children back to the magazine time and again to read more about the TV shows they regularly want to watch."
"We’re delighted to be working with SkyJack Publishing on the launch of Megaton," adds Alan Fenwick, Vice President, Turner CN Enterprises. "The magazine is a great brand extension for us and provides the perfect platform for kids and parents to interact with our properties."
