Winx Club and PopPixie Magazines Available in Québec

The Winx Club and PopPixie French comic magazines are officially available in the province of Québec (Canada). They have been available since July/August 2010. These comics are imported from France. They cost about 9.30$ before taxes and about 10.60$ after taxes. The magazines are published by Panini France S.A. All issues, Winx Club or PopPixie, come with a freebie such as jewellery or school supplies.

They are not releasing the comics in the same order as the Italian ones, but to give you an idea, they are starting with the comics around Issues #60 to present. Issues before #60 are being reprinted in a hardcover book form by Panini Kids. Prior to Panini Kids, it was Éditions Carabas that published the comics in France.

Come Join The Club, Keke!


In celebration of Keke Palmer joining the Winx team as voice actress for the "Keisha" that we're all wondering about, Winxlewanty made some pictures! We're still not sure who Keisha is, but Keke seems to be getting along with the girls alright!

Keke Palmer to voice act on Winx Club

Thanks to Ella of Winx 4 Life for finding this information.

According to NickandMore.com, Keke Palmer ("Akeelah and the Bee", "True Jackson, VP") will be voicing the character of "Keisha" in Nickelodeon's dub of Winx Club. The article states:

In addition, she will record this year the voice of Keisha, one of the magical fairies in the Nickelodeon animated action and fantasy series “Winx Club,” a hugely popular franchise with young girls worldwide that will debut in 2012 with new episodes in the U.S. Set in the mystical dimension of Magix where three schools educate modern fairies, witches and supernatural warriors from around the universe, “Winx Club” first aired in Italy six years ago and became an international phenomenon.

A lot of theories have been put forward on who Keisha is, including that it's just a misspelling of Aisha, a new name for Layla, or a completely new character.

Palmer did voice work in the direct-to-DVD film "Tortoise vs. Hare".
