The Phoenix Comic Issue 116
James Mayhew

Ages: all-ages

The Phoenix is a weekly story comic for boys and girls aged 6 to 12. Containing 32 pages of full-colour, illustrated story-strips, puzzles and non-fiction, The Phoenix is dedicated purely to brilliant, high quality content, and unlike many other publications for children, contains NO adverts.

Beware, syrup rustlers! Watch your back, bootleggers of carbonated beverages! Chip Charlton of The Royal Canadian Mounted Police and his courageous partner, Mr Woofles, are out for justice! This noble duo of man and dog are not afraid to dispense the law to all purveyors of counterfeit treats.

Working with some of the very best writers and artists in the country, The Phoenix  offers children (and adults!) a feast of imaginative experiences – weekly!
