The Phoenix Weekly is a UK comics magazine for kids—somewhat in the tradition of the ancient Beano and the departed Dandy—but a little more up to date. All of these venerable kids brands have gone kidgital, but the Phoeniz now has a snappy new iPad app, designed by the Panel Nine crew. It’s onsale now — a special deal for a six- month sub for £9.99 runs out at midnight tonight so hurry over to check it out.
If you’re a parent, getting good quality material for your digital babysitter, aka iPad, is always a priority, and the six month sub deal for the Phoenix is worth checking out.
