Well, first of all I'd like to say there's one thing I hate about the Toxic, the amount of annoying American cartoons and stuff saying things in large caption bubbles that lead from their mouth, it really annoys me, I never like it when they use a picture from somewhere, and then add tacky captions with them speaking, the Beano and the Dandy both don't do it but this comic does, it's so annoying...
Secondly I'd like to mention the comic strips, this week (I believe) saw the first appearance of new character Gorilla Kid, not sure who it's drawn by but I love it, the idea is great, it has a classic feel to it and the artwork is old school fun! Robin Hoodie is hilarious, Laura did such a good job at this one, the story is very funny, it feels modern and yet at the same time classic... Then there's Zoikz which is okay, an adventure story about some weird viruses called Zoikz that mess with technology, it's okay but it was sold to the Toxic to advertise the website and game, still the stories are okay and the artwork isn't bad, but it's easily my least favourite... And finally Team Toxic, I love this strip, the artwork is fantastic, the storylines are always great plus this strip feels 'classic', Lew does a great job at drawing it and it's a nice story to read and one of the main reasons why  I buy the Toxic at times...

If you'd like me to carry on with Toxic reviews let me know below, thanks! :)
