JLA & General Mills: Round two!

Back in 2011 we were all excited about the teaming up of DC Comic’s Justice League of America and General Mills in that they combined forces to produce four mini comics that were inserted in cereal boxes.

Well, it seems that they have gone and done it again, producing five more comics with the JLA. We’ve already acquired one (well, two, as we got a duplicate). But we are now on the hunt to acquire the rest of this new set. Needless to say, we’ll probably hunt them up on ebay rather than keep buying cereal as we really don.t eat that much cereal any more.

Still we think that this is a very cool idea, and glad that they are choosing to keep the series going (the original four were numbered 1–4, and this new series is keeping the numbering going with 5–9).  Each issue is a stand-alone story with the last couple of pages appearing in an online mini-site

The five books in the free-with-purchase cereal series are:
  • #5 - Escape from Monster Island
  • #6 - Lost on Mars!
  • #7 - To Catch a Thief
  • #8 - Walking on Fire
  • #9 - Swap Meet
The stories being told in each of the five comic books will once again be continued online on a microsite located at BiggCerealHeroes.com.
