DC Thomson launches new monthly children’s magazine series

Gareth Whelan: "We’ve seen the popularity of Halloween boom in the UK in recent years."

Maria Welch, Head of Publishing for Magazines at DC Thomson Media said, “We have a wealth of talent in our magazine teams who are passionate about creating content to engage and inspire kids and we'll channel all of that expertise into making This Is an unmissable magazine.”

Issue One is This Is Halloween, a “spook-tacular” magazine packed full, says DC Thomson, of everything kids need to get ready for Halloween. Inside kids will find monstrous makes, creepy comics, foul facts and heaps of games, quizzes, puzzles and jokes!

This Is Halloween comes with four free costume gifts: “skull masks, monster bolts, sick scabs and vampire fangs”.

Gareth Whelan, Children’s Publisher for Magazines at DC Thomson Media said, “We’ve seen the popularity of Halloween boom in the UK in recent years. Children are really embracing the tradition and This Is Halloween encapsulates the spirit of the celebration with brilliant jokes, stories and more.”

This Is Halloween is on-sale from 4th October, priced £3.99.
