The First Christmas Phoenix
Issue 51 of The Phoenix is a special one because it is the title's very first Christmas issue! Like this years Christmas Beano, the logo could do with some snow (but at least it's wearing a Santa hat!), and the comic is filled with heaps of Christmassy goodness, including a four page Bunny Vs. Monkey, the title's most popular characters (according to a recent poll) by the fantastic Jamie Smart!
There are other highlights too, such as a festive Gary's Garden (by Gary Northfield, of course), part two of Cogg and Sprokit by Jamie Littler, and a fantastic centre spread giving us a rare inside look at Santa's Grotto, by the brilliant Chris Riddell!
All this and more is bundled up in a fantastic package, yours for just £2.99! But be quick - The Phoenix sells out fast!
