DC Comics artists remake Monsters cereals
This Halloween, your favorite cereal monsters are getting a facelift courtesy of four of the biggest comic book artists around.
They’re also getting a new text treatment reflective of their particular monster nature (for example, ghostly, see-through lettering for Boo Berry).
Bonus: Retro packaging (with cut-out masks!) will be available at Target stores, so you can pretend it's #ThrowbackThursday every morning over breakfast.
Boo Berry (by Jim Lee)
Jim Lee, now the co-publisher of DC Entertainment, is one of the most celebrated artists in comics, with acclaimed work on X-Men, Batman and Superman. His Boo Berry takes on a much more fluid animated look (almost Casper-like), while retaining his sleepy eyes, bow tie and hat. (Credit: General Mills)
Franken Berry (by Dave Johnson)
These days, Dave Johnson is one of the most in-demand cover artists, bring his bold, clean style to the covers of books like "Punisher," "Batman" and "100 Bullets." His Franken Berry gains a crisscross of chains over his shoulders while keeping -- and refining -- the mechanical accents on his head as well as his strawberry fingernails. Side note: Would biting your fingernails be an acceptable thing to do if we all had fingernails made of strawberries? This is what keeps me up at night. (Credit: General Mills)
Count Chocula (by Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson)
This husband and wife duo are best known for their work on Spider-Man and the Joker’s girlfriend Harley Quinn. Their Count Chocula gives the chocolate fiend a more pointed look, with a straighter nose and an eventaller haircut. (Credit: General Mills)
