In a press release, General Mills and DC Comics announced their partnership in the redesign of some classic cereal characters.
Monsters Cereals partnered with four DC Comics artists to redesign packaging for the Monsters. The partnership stemmed from the DC Comics artists’ love for Monsters Cereals. The artists redesigned both the front and back panels of the cereal boxes, giving the three Monsters a new look and creating unique comic strips for the back of the boxes. The packaging will be available as limited-edition collector’s items for the 2014 Halloween season only.
For the first time ever, General Mills has partnered with four DC Comics artists to redesign this year’s packaging for Monsters Cereals. DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee redesigned Boo Berry, Dave Johnson gave Franken Berry a facelift, and Terry and Rachel Dodson restyled Count Chocula. The partnership stemmed from the DC Comics artists’ love for Monsters Cereals and their enthusiasm for the opportunity to reinterpret the Monsters characters.
“There are many lifelong fans of Monsters Cereal at DC Entertainment so we were excited when the Monsters team at General Mills reached out to us to help design their packaging,” said Lee. “It’s not Halloween without Monsters, and we hope everyone loves the new designs just as much as we do.”
All of the characters were colored by Dave McCaig. What do you guys think of these redesigns? Which one is your favorite?
