TOXIC  Comic BadgeThe next issue of Egmont’s TOXIC, on sale next week, will be a Gaming Special, presumably following up on the success of the recent issue that included a bonus Fortnite premium.

Published every three weeks, the title includes some comic strip as well as a mix of features, sneak peaks at the biggest movie releases, reviews of the latest games, puzzles and activities.

Toxic magazine’s special gaming issue harnesses the latest gaming trends and best brands in the children’s market, says Egmont Publishing. This issue includes exclusive Fortnite coverage, the latest gaming news and the opportunity to win one of nearly 50 competition prizes.

The Gaming Issue comes in a collectable, exclusive envelope package “stuffed with gaming goodies”, including the Official Minecraft Medieval Fortress build guide worth £12.99, Crash Bandicoot stickers, a Poké Ball… and an 80-card Fortnite quiz game.

“By curating the brands kids know and love, Toxic succeeds in attracting and engaging even the most reluctant of readers,” says Egmont. “We recognise how well our trend-led gaming coverage transfers to print and acts as an extension of the highest-profile games, maximising the potential Toxic has to introduce our audience to the benefits of reading for pleasure.”

“We are thrilled to be presenting this unique and exclusive issue of Toxic which harnesses the latest trends in both the children’s and gaming market.” added Egmont Publishing Own Brand Publisher, Rahela Begum. ” Our unrivalled reach and expertise ensures Toxic remains the first-choice boys’ magazine for both readers and partners.”
