SkyJack Publishing is teaming up with Turner CN Enterprises to publish Cartoon Network content in Megaton, a new video gaming magazine aimed at eight to 12 year olds.

Launching today - Thursday February 25th - Megaton will publish four-weekly and will feature 18 pages of Cartoon Network content. This will include 16 pages of exclusive comic strips from brands such as The Secret Saturdays, Samurai Jack and Codename: Kids Next Door, among others.

The 100-page magazine will have a strong gaming focus and will also include a selection of free gifts. The title will be supported by a website.

"Megaton is the only magazine in the children's market that offers 100-pages of pure gaming and comic strip content," said Matt Yeo, SkyJack Publishing's MD. "The addition of officially licensed Cartoon Network comic strips is fantastic news for us and the readers."

Graham Saltmarsh, UK licensing director, Turner CN Enterprises, added: "We are delighted to be working with the talented team at SkyJack Publishing on the launch of Megaton. The magazine is a great brand extension for us and provides the perfect platform for kids and parents to interact with our properties."
