Ready For Halloween Yet? Monster Fun Is With A New Look!
The Halloween Spooktacular from Rebellion
Halloween is fast approaching - it’s a big deal in our house - and with that in mind, I have seen an increase of the spooky season comics we would expect slowly making their way across the previews. Now Rebellion has jazzed up Monster Fun1, just in time for the Halloween Spooktacular!
In April 2022 Rebellion proudly launched our first new ongoing comic for years: Monster Fun, a monthly series for children aged 7-12. It quickly proved to be a mega-success, with kids and parents loving the monthly laughter, mischief and mayhem in the series.

TRICK OR TREAT! MONSTER FUN'S HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR 2023 DEBUTS NEW LOOK!
Across the summer hundreds of children from across the UK picked up their pencils and pens to enter the Monster Fun Draw A Monster Competition, offering the winner the chance to see their monster be drawn into a one page comic strip alongside their favourite character from the pages of Monster Fun!
Now one lucky reader will certainly get a treat when they open the Monster Fun Halloween Spooktacular 2023 issue – on shelves 4ᵗʰ October with an incredible new look – as their monster “Smizerd”, a blue wizard whose magic is all about cakes and baking, has been placed inside a Monster Fun story!
“Everyone always says it’s hard to pick a winner, but it genuinely was for this competition! The amount of creativity we’ve seen from our readers was incredible, and we’re thrilled that so many of them picked up their pens and pencils across the summer to get involved.” says Monster Fun editor Keith Richardson, “Our Halloween issue is always a hit, but now we have the winners showcased in there too, it’s proving to be an extra special issue for readers to enjoy this spooky season.”
The Monster Fun Halloween Spooktacular 2023 will also be the first issue in a brand new design and logo, transforming the comic for the next era of monsters, mischief, and mayhem!
“When Monster Fun launched in April last year it was our first new ongoing comic in years. Now eighteen months on we felt it time to embrace a new look as we continue to expand Monster Fun on shelves and as a brand.” Says Rebellion CEO, Jason Kingsley OBE, “Our readership is growing every month, with more and more children and families finding Monster Fun an essential reading experience. We’ve worked so hard to create a quality comic that is all about encouraging a love for reading, and working with one of our star contributors, Matt Baxter, this brilliant new look - paired with comic strips starring some brand new characters - should make our comic a real highlight this Halloween!”
Inside the bumper 48 page Halloween Spooktacular 2023 issue popular favourites such as Kid Kong, Hell’s Angel, and Witch Vs Warlock will feature alongside new characters and strips including Frankencritter, All Hallows Screams, and the debut of a rebooted Crabbe’s Crusaders ready for a whole new generation of readers!
