Grab the new TOXIC!


The latest issue of Egmont’s TOXIC title, featuring humour strips by Lew Stringer and others, is on sale now.

As well as strips and features, the issue comes with three free gifts: a Grabbing Hand, Star Wars Magnets and a Badge Making Kit.

“Grabbing Hands” can of course, be used not only to pick your nose (as suggested by the TOXIC team): you could, for example, pretend to be a specially-adapted laboratory Dalek (chase people shouting “Experiment! Experiment!”).

Other suggestions include from Team TOXIC include grabbing sweets off your mates while they’re not looking (we don’t ever want to be sitting next to them at a convention); or see if you can play a video game using just the hand. Now there’s a challenge…
