They always included a letter details the issues included.
Let’s jump right in with two huge titles…
Amazing Spider-Man #1 – Value $5.99
I’ve been debating on wether to keep up with the marvel universe or stay 6 months behind with my subscription to Marvel Unlimited (which is awesome btw). I’m trying to stay behind for my budget’s sake, but I’ve already taken a peek at Iron-Man #1 from the latest Collector’s Corps, so I think i’ll be peaking here too because I’m too excited not to.
Batman and Robin Eternal #1 – Value $3.99
I was so close to buying this on Comixology two nights ago! I’m currently up to date on the latest run of Batman, but I’m also on Volume 3 of Batman Eternal. Batman Eternal has really got a hold of me, I just love it, so that’s why I was strongly considering starting Batman & Robin Eternal – it’s like they read my mind. I’ll also go ahead and recommend Batman Europa which just had it’s first issue this past Wednesday.
Paper Girls #1 – Value $3.99
I’ve heard a ton of praise for Paper Girls – lots of hype about issue one’s ending as well, so I’m excited to read up. This is from Brian Vaughan, who also writes the super-popular Saga!
I Hate Fairyland #1 – Value $3.50
This one is completely new to me. It’s about a six year old girl who has been stuck in Fairyland for 30 years and is trying to get back home. With lots of hacking and slashing of course. They made it super bold to let you know that this is not for kids!
Spider-Man 2099 #1 – Value $3.99
Another #1 from marvels brand new runs – this one features the futuristic Spider-Man. Like I said before, my will is not strong enough to hold off reading this, it’ll probably be all read by night!
Verdict: I’m always excited to have this box at my door! This has definitely been my favorite month, 4 of the 5 titles have been ones that I’ve been eyeing up, so it’s pretty much tailor made for me. I always make it a point to point out that comic subscriptions are definitely best for discovering new titles and don’t provide a ton of monetary value over the price you pay. The value is in the curation!
