Each box comes with an info card detailing the items included:
Saga T-Shirt – Value $10?
This month’s shirt is based on the Sci-Fi comic Saga. I haven’t read Saga – so I had to go browse around to find out more info, and it seems like an interesting title and has a lot of good reviews! Has anyone read Saga?
Green Lantern Ring – Value $1-2
I can’t lie, I was like a little kid when I saw this one. This is definitely one of the cheaper versions of the ring on the market – but this is just the small item from the box, and every month, that item is pretty low-cost – but this is one of my favorites! It’s too small, so I’ll be including it in a future Geek Box Grab Bag – but it is cool, and lights up!
Here’s a look at it all lit up!
Deadpool vs. Thanos #1 – Value $3.99
I immediately pulled this one out and read it. It’s hard not to enjoy a Deadpool comic, and if you were ever wondering what it’d be like if Thanos fought Deadpool one on one, this would be one to check out!
Mad Max Comic – Max Part One – Value $4-5
We had already received this item in the July 2015 Nerd Block Classic. This will be an easy one to gift, I read it in July and loved it, and plan on continuing the series. On top of that – we loved the movie!
Danger Girl: Renegade #1 – Value $3.99
This is a new one to me, and I love IDW comics – so I’m excited to read it. This one is as a Comic Block exclusive variant cover.
Mirror’s Edge Exordium – Value $3.99
I know this was a pretty popular video game a couple of years ago, and that there’s a new game coming out next year – beyond that, that’s all I know! This series explores the back story of Mirror’s Edge main character, Faith.
Verdict: I was very happy with this month’s Comic Block! Typically, we’d receive 3 comics, a shirt, and a small item – this month we received it all, plus an extra comic! I’m glad to see even more value added without removing an item! I wasn’t a huge fan of the shirt this month, but I’m betting I may become one once I start into the Saga series! On top of that, I really enjoyed all the other items this month, it’s just too bad the ring only fits my pinky!
