Spawn Shirt – Value $10?
This month’s exclusive shirt features one of my favorite characters – Spawn! Needless to say, I love this month’s shirt. It was the first hting I saw when opening the box, and I was immediately ecstatic to find out what else was inside!
Heroes Vengeance #1 – Value $3.99
First up is the first issue of Heroes: Vengeance. This run is a prelude to the brand new show, Heroes Reborn. I watched all of season 1 of Heroes and really enjoyed it, but kind of fell off in season 2. I may have to give it a re-watch, because I really should like this show!
Lara Croft Frozen Omen #1 – Value $3.99
This is a recent run from Lara Croft, of Tomb Raider fame, from Dark Horse Comics. While I grew up playing Tomb Raider, and absolutely had a blast playing the Tomb Raider reboot – I didn’t even realized there was a comic – although there are comics around so much that I’m not surprised! Has anyone read any of these comics? I imagine they’d be easy to just keep ongoing with all of her adventures. This also features an exclusive variant cover!
Back To The Future #1 – Value $4.99
Next up is my favorite item this month, issue #1 of the new IDW line – Back To The Future! IDW has done a great job of taking popular movies, shows, and older comic and reviving them in brand new runs, and I expect this to be no different! I can’t wait to start this one! This also features an exclusive variant cover.
Venom Print – Value $10?
The last item this month is a Venom art print! I feeling the love from geek boxes lately because Venom is one of my favorite characters, and he’s popping up in all shapes and forms this month! I’m really liking the art style of this print – it may have to accompany my full-size bust!
Verdict: I’m always looking forward to getting Comic Block each month – they always knock it out of the park for me! This month is no different, I’m excited for all 3 comics and I love the shirt and artwork, I really can’t ask for anything else!
