Hiya, Phoenixers! Tabs has had a great big gulp of Special Editor Coffee because with everyone MISSING our editor needed a special kick to get everything done! Especially with the ANTIFUN leaking through the fanfare walls. She’s on her own and doing her best to hold things together until the last key is found.


The last key is still not found and there are only two issues left to find it.

We’re running out of time but we have faith in you!

Serious News! Our great pal and number two in command, Chops Piggerton, is MISSING!

Looks like Tabs Inkspot is the only one left at Phoenix HQ. The fan art wall has bought us time to find the keys but it’s breached! This week’s fan art is TEEMING with vibrancy and is just what we need to hold off the Antifun!

We’re getting close to finding all the keys…but also close to running out of time. We have one more key to find and only three more chances before Issue 200!

The Future of The Phoenix depends on you!

4th Keybearer Discovered: Ffion, aged 10, from Wales!

September 25, 2015

Ffion - Keybearer of WonderName: Ffion

Age: 10

Location: Wales

Known For: Being Out in Nature

Skills: Swimming, Rugby, Horse Riding, Making Dens!

The KEY OF WONDER has been found by Ffion, aged 10, in Wales! The KEY Of WONDER radiates numinous power! It is said to fill the Keybearer with curiosity, enlightenment, and the power to see into the hearts and minds of others! The golden stone set into the eye of the key is known as THE CHRYSOPOEIAN. Famous bearers of the KEY OF WONDER from the past include: Lao Tzu, Galileo, Artemis, Aristotle.

We’re nearly there, Phoenixers. EVERYONE around here has been snatched by the ANTIFUN, it’s left to Tabs and Chops to make sure we get the Phoenix out to you EVERY WEEK. With Quincy gone, there’s no one clever enough to fix the walls of Fanfare, and the ANTIFUN is starting to leak through!!

There’s still time to beat the ANTIFUN before ISSUE 200!

Find that last key so we can SAVE THE PHOENIX!

Third Keybearers Discovered: William & Simon from Edinburgh!

September 11, 2015

Simon and William LoRes

Names: William and Simon

Ages: 7 and 9

Location: Edinburgh

Known For: Playing Minecraft and Building Lego

After an agonising wait, the thrid Golden Key has been FOUND, but no one expected that there would be TWO KEYBEARERS…

WILLIAM and SIMON are brothers from Scotland, and the KEY OF KNOWLEDGE turned up in their envelope last week. It seems like the mysterious powers that infuse the key have decided that two heads are better than one!.

Finding the THIRD KEY has come in the nick of time. We couldn’t be happier! The KEY OF KNOWLEDGE radiates wisdom. It is said that when a Keybearer holds it, the workings of the universe are unlocked, and there is no question that cant be answered! The red gem set into the key is called, “Mind’s Fire”.

Remember, there are still TWO KEYS LEFT!

Will YOU find one in YOUR envelope and become a HERO?

Oh no, readers…first, Quincy Trowell vanishes…then Scoop Yapski…and now, the indomitable GOVERNOR CARCASS!

But this time is was witnessed by the guv’s assistant: Doug the Dogsbody! Here’s his statement:

“It was the ANTIFUN that took the Guv. I’ll bet my cotton socks that

it was the ANTIFUN that took Quincy and Scoop too.”

Is Doug right, Phoenixers? Is the ANTIFUN evolving? Is anyone at Phoenix HQ safe? Remember, your fan art can help slow the ANTIFUN, don’t stop sending it in!

Stay Phoenixy, folks, and keep searching for those keys – only they can save us!

Our old pal Quincy Trowel is STILL MISSING. Somebody has to find him, and Scoop Yapski PI is on the case! He started in the newsroom…because he was there already. That’s where he saw it – CCTV footage of Quincy on the move. But where was he going?

Scoop tracked The Mole to the Storylabs. But there was no sign of him. Just the beautiful scent of amazing stories to come. Scoop had to move on.

Finally, he went to the kitchen to get lunch but there was no time to rest. Scoop had to search on…

The trail led to The Ministry of Mistakes but Governor Carcass was unhelpful. “Stupid Mole shouldn’t have let himself be disappeared!” he said. We hope those words don’t come back to haunt him…

It’s been WEEKS since we’ve found a GOLDEN KEY, and now people have started going missing. What will happen next?!

Have you guys noticed the AntiFun? Have you noticed how it’s started taking over the Big News? Well it looks like BARNABY KNOWLES accidentally brought it back from the future! It was HIS footprint that grew and grew and is now taking over The Phoenix!

In an interview with Scoop Yapski, Barnaby Knowles had this to say… “Pah! I want to RULE The Phoenix, not destroy it…Phoenixers, I know I’ve been trouble before, but this ISN’T my fault! Help an owl out – find the last three keys and SAVE THE PHOENIX!”

Keep concentrating Phoenixers! There are only three Golden Keys left to find!
