A new Frankenberry cereal comic!

After years of slowly disappearing from the shelves, becoming more and more difficult to find, I'm happy that Frankenberry, Boo Berry and all of the General Mills Monster Cereals have been reappearing with some frequency over the last few years.  I long for the day when I can go out and buy a box of Frankenberry on any day of the year as opposed to just around Halloween, but I'll take what I can get.  It's a little bit inconvenient to store 20 boxes of cereal in your basement because you don't want to run out by March, but it's worth it.  This year, General Mills even brought back Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute, which was an added treat.

A few years ago, Monster Cereal boxes came with an honest-to-goodness comic on the back.  The comic ran for several years but was retired this year in favor of a brand new comic, still by an unknown artist, featuring all five cereal mascots.  The artwork is fun and interesting.  The image in the middle of Yummy Mummy is particularly well done.

Dear General Mills: if you one day decide to produce a Frankenberry comic, I will totally write it, and I'll even accept boxes of Frankenberry as payment.  Please make this happen.

Target has these cereals stocked up and on sale, and in retro boxes, even.  Time to stock up like I am.
