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

The Subscription Box: Comic Bento

The Cost: $25 ($17.50 + s/h)

I wanted to include an extra picture of how they package the volumes – it’s all packaged together and backed with cardboard.

Comic Bento Subscription Box Review October 2015 - Cartain Marvel and Harbinger

Captain Marvel: Higher, Further, Faster, More – Value $17.99

I’m starting of with my favorite volume this month – Captain Marvel! I have this saved on my Marvel Unlimited account, so I’m excited to have the push to jump in! I really enjoyed the new line, Ms. Marvel, so I’m hoping I’ll enjoy this one as well!

Harbinger: Omega Rising – Value $9.99

This one is new to me, but I’m getting excited reading that it received a “shelfload of nominations”. While I have a ton to read on my list – I’m always ok adding another amazing story to it!

Comic Bento Subscription Box Review October 2015 - Green Hornet and OrchidOrchid Volume 1 – Value $17.99

I immediately doubled checked to see if it was the Tom Morello that wrote this, and it is!

When the seas rose, genetic codes were smashed. Human settlements are ringed by a dense wilderness from which ferocious new animal species prey on the helpless. The high ground belongs to the rich and powerful that overlook swampland shantytowns from their fortress-like cities. Iron-fisted rule ensures order and allows the wealthy to harvest the poor as slaves.

I’m in! It sounds Hunger Games-ish but with a darker edge, sounds great to me!

Green Hornet Volume 1 – Value $19.99

I haven’t read this run of the adventures of Hornet and Kato, so I’m excited to get yet another new run to start – another exciting addition this month! I don’t know where to start!

Verdict: This was my favorite month of Comic Bento. I’m excited to read all 4 comics, and it’s almost an overload of where to begin – that’s a good problem to have! I really like comic subscription boxes for the discovery aspect they bring, and it’s even better when I can start a new series with a full volume instead of a single issue, so I’m really enjoying Comic Bento so far!

What did you think of October’s Comic Bento?
