Each box comes with an info card detailing the items included:
Batgirl Shirt – Value $10?
I’ve been really impressed with Comic Block’s shirt choices, they’ve been really solid and this month is no different. This month we get Batgirl, ready and willing to take on batman’s rogue gallery!
Thor Keychain – Value $10?
Our small item this month is Thor’s Hammer keychain. I’ve received Thor’s Hammer in keychain form from a couple of different boxes in the past, but this is the smallest hammer version that I have received, which I guess is good since I don’t really have any room for something big on keys in my pocket.
Ok. On to the comics, this month we received 4 comics:
Vadar Down #1 w/ Variant Cover – Value $4.99
I recently started reading the latest Star Wars runs (including Vadar, Princess Leia, and Kanan), and I’m really enjoying them. But, since I use Marvel Unlimited for Marvel comics, I’m six months behind and don’t want to jump into this for fear of spoilers! I’m sure it’s awesome, though!
Pacific Rim: Tales From The Drift #1 w/ Variant Cover – Value $4.99
While I really enjoy the movie, I’ve never read the comics. That being said, it’s basically a giant monster comic, so it has a high percentage chance of being a fun read (i.e. Enormous!)
Star Wars #1 w/ FanExpo Variant Cover – Value $4.99
This is the run I spoke of earlier in the review. It’s a fun read that captures the characters well. It takes place after the Death Star has been destroyed, and before Luke finds Yoda and learns to harness the Force!
Howard The Duck #1 – Value $4.99
I loved the movie when I was younger, but I haven’t read any of the comics. This will be a good chance to give it a shot!
Verdict: I think Comic Block is doing a great, and consistent, job of providing newer issues of current runs, cool comic-related items, and value! Comic subscriptions have quickly become my favorite type of subscription box. While the value typically breaks even on these, it’s really about the discovery. I’m now thoroughly engrained in Paper Girls, Saga, Enormous, and Batman & Robin Eternal – all because of these boxes!
