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.
