When we started this site a year ago, there was one rule: never, under any circumstances, use the pun “cereal killer.” Unfortunately, we had to break that rule today to announce a new line of trading cards we hope you’ll really like…

Cereal Killers is pretty much exactly what you’d think: cereal-themed Wacky Packages with a horror bent. Well, they’re not actually Wacky Packages, but they were inspired by them. In fact, Joe Simko, artist and creator of the series, worked on both Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids for Topps before pitching his Cereal Killers idea to them as a new series. When Topps ultimately passed, he took the idea to Wax Eye, who just released the 55-card set this April.

The cards come in a neat package of three mini boxes which each include eyeball gum; a surprise toy; and special, limited-edition sketch cards, black-light cards, magnets, temporary tattoos, and fun stuff. A set of three boxes at Wax Eye will run you about $25.

Will you be buying a set? What were your favorite cereals from Wacky Packages?

    on a related note ::  always hear people say things along the line of “i ONLY like (x cereal)
    DRY” – this is really annoying if you think about it because its just
    so wrong!!!  the answer to this question always should just be “YES” or
    “YEAH ITS GOOD”.  let me break this down.

    -the cereal brand being referenced is a specific type of food.  it is
    along the lines of the “big mac” from mcdonalds or the “whopper” from
    wendys – itd be “honey nut cheerios” by post, or “super generic-os” from
    kroger, or what have you.

    when someone asks you, “do you like the big mac” you dont say “i only
    like it without pickles.” or “i only like it with extra tomato” – you
    fucking say HELL YEAH I DO

    i think there is some confusion made about the milk – the question at
    hand was “DO YOU LIKE LUCKY CHARMS” not “DO YOU LIKE LUCKY CHARMS IN
    MILK”

    milk is clearly just a best practice for cereal – a recommendation – a
    “THINGS THAT GO GREAT WITH” type item.  like peanut butter and jelly. 
    or bacon and eggs.  that type of deal.

    THERE IS A FULL SPECTRUM OF MILK SELECTION AND SOG FACTOR AT PLAY!!! 
    ranging from dry, to barely soggy [in regular milk, 2%, skim, soy,
    almond, flavored – what flavor, etc] to super soggy to FULLY SATURATED
    AND FLAKING APART.  and certainly some cereals do better than others at
    these factors – anyway the point is that you dont describe in detail how
    soggy or not soggy you like the cereal, so dont even make sense!!!!!
