Everything is triple protected with this box. These inner envelopes hold all of your comics, which are also bagged and boarded. It also makes unboxing much more fun, I’ve found!
The shipment comes with a letter speaking to the month’s selections. I love that they also have a section for each selection where they give their thoughts on the series/issue.
Daredevil #1 – Value $3.99
Matt Murdock returns to New York – yes, please! I’ve yet to start this new run, and I have yet to finish his run where he’s in San Francisco – I’m guessing I should get through that run first! Does anyone recommend me skipping the San Francisco series, or do you give it a thumbs up?
Symmetry #1 – Value $3.99
This is new to me, and Blindbox is highly recommending it because of the creative team behind the title. Getting back into comics has been a bit of a trek for me, but recommendations like this have helped me discover great series – like Saga and Paper Girls!
Dreaming Eagles #1 – Value $3.99
I’m really interested in this Tuskegee Airmen 6-issue series! From Amazon:
Inspired by true events, Dreaming Eagles tells the story of the first African American fighter pilots to join the United States Army Air Force in WWII and whose humble beginnings in Tuskegee, Alabama propelled them into the deadly skies above Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich.
The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage: Second Lives – Value $3.99
This was chosen because the first series of this run was “an underappreciated gem”. It sounds like I have some reading to do before jumping into this!
Snow Blind #1 – Value $3.99
I want to read this purely for the artist style! This is a crime noir story – exciting!
Snow Blind #1 Bonus Variant – Value $10.50
This is also Snow Blind #1, but a higher value variant cover! Score!
There are 3 possible variants you could have received of GI Joe #221 this month. The color edition (limited to 1,000), the Black & White (limited to 500), or the Gold Logo edition (limited to 100)! Zach Howard randomly signed a handful of these, and I was lucky enough to pull a signed Black and White issue!
Here is the certificate along with his signature.
Verdict: This is my third delivery from Blindbox Comics, and I am loving it so far! For collectors, I highly recommend the BlindVariant, it’s a fun chance to get some really valuable issues! I have a lot of fun unboxing this one, with the individual envelopes. While the value of most comic boxes is in the curation of each box, recently comic boxes have been going for awesome and exclusive variants and autographed copies – so it does bring the value above cost!
