Comics can be a touchy subject in this house. Every now and again my kids go through phases where they love buying them. While they genuinely keep Helen and Izzy entertained, they cost about a fiver each and they’re often wrapped in plastic film with huge numbers of tacky, poor quality plastic toys on the front. I’ve just been introduced to Phoenix comics. It’s a good quality comic with a difference and one Dadbloguk reader will win a year-long subscription worth £99.

Selection of Phoenix comics.
The Phoenix comic: Great stories, weel illustrated and you could win a year-ling subscription for your child.

I’ll come on to the details of the giveaway in a moment. First, what’s so special about The Phoenix?

I’ll start by giving my opinion. They’re well-illustrated with a range of engaging stories that feature both male and female heroes. Frankie and Her Machines, a story about a girl who develops robots in Victorian Britain being a story with a female lead that stands out.

I should also add that contributors include well known artists, illustrators and writers. They include Jamie Smart, Andreas Schuster and Joe List.

There are no tacky toys on the front cover or single-use plastic film wrapping. Each edition features artwork, puzzles and ‘how-to’ drawing guides.

Phoenix comics also represent superb value for money. New editions come out weekly. If you take out a subscription for a year (52 issues) it costs £99.99, less than £2 an issue (a six-month subscription costs £59.99).  

When the comics arrive, they are addressed to ‘The Amazing’ or ‘The Awesome.’ This way your child has the fun and excitement of opening mail addressed to them. When the comics arrived here, they were addressed to ‘The Fantastic Izzy Adams.’

When the comics arrived at our house, Izzy was only too keen to tear her way into the envelopes. Both she and her sister have enjoyed reading them and it’s worth pointing out that they are designed for youngsters aged between 7 and 14 years of age.

I was impressed by the artwork and storylines. Stories like The Boss, which is set in a secondary school, will appeal to older readers while Bunny Vs Monkey will appeal to those who are younger. Pheonix reminded me a great deal of the kind of comics I read when I was a child.

For more details or to subscribe, take a look online at the Phoenix website. For your chance to win a subscription, however, read on!

Entrance is via the Gleam, which is immediately below. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post explaining why you would like to win the subscription and / or do a retweet. Entrants must be 18 years or over and resident in the UK.

Very best of luck!

    this looks a well thought out issue and having a girl and boy , comics that suit both are a godsend, no fighting as to whose comic is best

  2. I would love to win this for my 9 year old son, he is just starting to get into comics so it would be awesome to win this for him. Thanks for the opportunity ????

  3. My son discovered a looshkin comic at the library and has been laughing his head off so it would be lovely to treat him to a whole year of looshkin and other characters.

  4. I’d love to win a subscription for two of my grandchildren who are reluctant readers unless it is in comic book format and then they will spend hours taking it all in. Sneaky but it works!

  5. My eldest daughter used to love magazines but now can’t find anything age relevant to her. She nearly 10 and like you said it seems there are so many of those magazines with the tacky plastic tat toy. Which isn’t keen on as they are targeted a bit younger than her and the older magazines are too old. This looks perfect for her and she loves drawing anime and cartoon sketches.

    I would love to win for my 12yr old son. He loves looking through magazines but normally they are a little too young for him but he loves looking and reading through them but at nearly a fiver or more at a time it is a very rare treat for him. I’m so glad they don’t come with the cheap plastic toy that is either completely rubbish and needs throwing straight away or breaks in a couple of days and needs throwing away. He would love these with the decent storyline and great sketches. The puzzles and how to draw would be much better and more engaging for him.

  7. Sammi McSporran

    This is definitely the sort of comic I’d love to share with my kids while also enjoying it myself! Lots of my own comics are a bit dark for little’uns!

  8. My daughter Faith struggles reading a book but adores comics and she’s progressing with her reading through comics

  9. Charlotte Wilde

    i would love to win this for my 9 year old daughter, she is autistic and has very firm views on what she likes and doesn’t – i def think she’d love this!

  10. Caroline Shepherd

    My daughter has the Bunny vs Monkey book and loves it, so I know she would get a lot out of the monthly comic.

  11. Heather Norrington

    These comics would be great for my little girl. They would really spark her enthusiasm and encourage her to engage with reading.

  12. This looks perfect for my 9 year old. He’s a reluctant reader but this looks like an intelligent comic which may be a great addition to the books we try and get him reading
