|First issue||September 2002|
Toxic magazine was launched in September 2002 by London-based Egmont Publishing. The intention was to address the elusive boys' magazine market. Its funny and anarchic take on all the important things in a boy's world proved to be extremely successful and the title continues to be published.
Toxic is "edited" by Team Toxic, a group of creatures under the supervision of Doc Shock.
Key content strands include movies, gaming (traditional and virtual world), TV, DVD, jokes, comics, sport, cars, celebrity, competition prizes and how-to.
The current comic strips are Captain Gross, Busted Bieber, Team Toxic, Luke's Spooks and Mad City's Star Signings, as of April 2012.
Initially launched as a monthly title, Toxic increased frequency to every three weeks with issue 14, then to fortnightly with issue 34.
Since January 2011, Toxic has been edited by former Shoot editor and Nuts journalist Frank Tennyson.
The last three ABC (Audit Bureau of Circulation) periods - Jan/June 2011, July/Dec 2011 and Jan/June 2012 - have seen Toxic record circulation increases.
Toxic celebrated a decade of publishing in the autumn of 2012.
