Signature Publishing, whose titles include Dinosaur King and Dinomite, are to release It's... Jokes magazine later this month.
The new magazine is the fourth in their successful “It’s…” series, aimed at 5 to 10 year olds and, say the publishers, will feature "tonnes of side-splitting gags, crazy puzzles and sneaky pranks.
"Every issue comes with a mega-mischievous joke pack, containing five free tricks; a whoopee cushion, fake spilled glue, pretend nail through the finger, a creepy cockroach, snappy chewing gum plus a free packet of Haribo sweets."
There's no indication from their press information on whether the title will include strip material, but you'd at least expect some cartoons with a name like that.
Signature Publishing’s portfolio includes Dinomite, Turbo Xtreme, Easy Peazy, Fantastic Funworld.
