The old poison
I have only six of these old markers so I can´t do much testing or drawing. But I had to buy some since they do look exactly the same as both Mepxy and Alpha. Poison marker may have the barrel in common with the other markers but they don't use the same font and they don´t have the same case. They only have the grey barrel with a chisel nib and a fine nib (not the white with a brush nib). If you compare the color chart of Mepxy and Alpha you can see some similarities but Poison do not follow that. Instead Poison follows a color chart system that is more or less exactly the same as the one that Touch and On-The-Run use. An example of that is that all three uses number 2 for a color called “Old Red”, number 7 are “Cosmos”, number 24 are “Marigold” and so on.
Of the six markers I have, four of them feel dry. Bad luck, or? They don´t seem to have any skin colors at all so this is not a marker for me.
The new poison
generation of Poison where released in late 2013. They only had 60 colors at that time. I received my markers in a case that had place for twice as many
but it turned out that the reason they didn't fill the case where that you
can not close the case if you totally fill it with markers, it is to small. I guess the
case was never meant for the new poison markers.
