Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review November 2015 - box

Blindbox Comics is a new (at least to me!) comic subscription box! They have 3 different purchase options – BlindBox, BlindVariant, or BlindBox + BlindVariant in month-to-month, 3, 6, or 12 month frequencies.

This is a review of the BlindBox + BlindVariant subscription!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Ships to: US

Recently, I’ve been on the lookout for comic subscriptions that are delivering recent titles, so I was excited to come across this one. I loved how it was shipping in a tight package, and I thought the unboxing presentation was phenomenal! The comics were tightly secured when unfolding the cardboard.

The comics themselves are then sealed inside these Blindbox envelopes – creating even more excitement to find out what I had got! It was a fun unboxing, and added an extra layer of protection to the comics.

The shipment comes with a letter speaking to the month’s selections, and a sticker.

OK, on to the good stuff…

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review November 2015 - karnak and paper girls

Karnak #1 – Value $3.99

I’m really excited about this run. With Marvel’s reboot happening, and tons of superheroes getting their new look and feel, its easy to overlook a comic like this one (at least for me). This was a great read, and touches more on the Inhumans – which I’ve read that Marvel is opting to move towards instead of mutants (thanks Sony). Anyways, definitely worth a read if you’re looking for something new!

Paper Girls #1 – Value $3.99

I had also received this in Comicboxer last month, and I finally had time to read it last night. Wow, this is the beginning of a unique and exciting story! I loved this issue (it’s a double issue, by the way!), and the end is just awesome and keeps you wanting to find out more and more. I picked up the second issue immediately…I’m hooked. It’s probably time that I go get hooked on Saga too. Thanks, Brian Vaughan.

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review November 2015 - clean room and i hate fairyland

I Hate Fairyland #1 – Value $3.50

This was also in Comicboxer last month. Like Paper Girls, I read it last night. If you couldn’t tell by the cover, it’s not for children, like, at all. I do love the concept, and I had fun reading it. I’m not sure if I’ll continue with the series, but it was definitely a fun read.

Clean Room #1 – Value $3.99

This was probably my least favorite of the batch. That being said, there’s definitely a lot of “what does that mean” and “what is happening” going on here – lots of interesting questions to be answered. So, the path has been laid out nicely for a cool story, but it wasn’t a read where I felt I needed to keep going.

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review November 2015 - spiderman

Amazing Spider-Man #1 – Value $5.99

Make it 3 out of 5 that we received in Comicboxer last month. Like everything else, I finally got a chance to read this one. I’m definitely liking the ideas presented in this run, and like someone said in the comments, it’s kind of like Iron Man meets Spiderman. I like that Parker Industries is playing a big part in the run, and I was happy to get a hint that Doc Oc lives! Check out the Superior Spider-Man run, it’s a good read!

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review November 2015 - enormous

Enormous #9 – Value $3.99

Giant monsters. Extinction-level Apocalypse. If you said ‘awesome’, to either of these, then this series is definitely for you! This is also an exclusive variant cover, and only 1 of 75 copies in the world! The graphic work in here is just beautiful. It’s an awesome story (even though I jumped into the middle), I’m thinking I may need to pick this series up too. There’s just too much good stuff!

Verdict: I really enjoyed my first month of Blindbox Comics. If I hadn’t received 3 comics in recent boxes, I would have been over the moon for this month, that being siad, it was still a great first experience. They did a great job with the unboxing presentation and selections! I’m really excited to see what next month brings!

  1. If they continue offering rare variants like this or add autographs, I’m in. I want a good comic box that offers something I can’t get anywhere and/or a good price.
