The Phoenix Comic Celebrates 200th Issue

The Phoenix will be the first independent comic to reach its 200th issue in over 40 years.

Coverage has included an appearance on Newsround, pieces in 3 leading mail titles and 3 radio interviews. They have also set up their own #HappyPhoenix200 hashtag, bringing in tweets from cartoonists and illustrators, and adoring fans including children and parents!

The Phoenix is currently stocked in Waitrose and independent book stores. However the new issue will debut in WHSmith High Street nationwide, beginning with a promoted launch.

Dame Jacqueline Wilson OBE reviews: "Children will love The Phoenix – and Mums and Dads will doubtless want to sneak a peek too."

Kieran, a reader, praises, "every Friday, as soon as I'm home from school, the first thing I look forward to is opening my envelope to behold the (potential) awesomeness contained within! Seriously, I love it."

Tom Fickling, Editor of The Phoenix, comments, "One of the most important things to us at the Phoenix is to encourage children to use their imaginations to create their own comic stories. Jordan and Jonny are both young talents who have a passion for making comics , and I’ve lost count of the amazing number of things they’ve sent in or shown me. Issue 200 is a chance for us to support them and inspire other children to get creating”.
