They always included a letter details the issues included with a lot of great commentary – it really does help when starting a new title.
Superman: Coming of the Supermen #1 – Value $3.99
This is the beginning of a 6-issue miniseries. We get to meet 3 new Supermen from Kandor that help battle Darkseid – this is looking like one that I can get into.
Spider-Man #1 – Value $3.99
Variant Value – $4.49 on Midtown Comics
Next up is the beginning of a new tale for Miles Morales! I really love most of the different spider-men across the different timelines. I especially like Miguel O’Hara from Spider-Man 2099 – that suit is awesome.
Deadpool #1 – Value $1
We have also received this one in this month’s ZBox. This is a reprint of New Mutants #98 and features Deadpool meeting Cable for the first time! Ever since the 90’s animated X-Men series, Cable and Bishop have been my favorites characters, so I need to get around to reading this one.
Kennel Block Blues #1 – Value $3.99
This is completely new to me. From Amazon:
What’s to Love: From Oz to Shawshank Redemption, we just love great prison dramas. But what if the prison in question is an animal shelter? Ryan Ferrier (Curb Stomp) and Daniel Bayliss (Translucid) combine the tradition of great anthropomorphic stories like Wild’s End and Blacksad with the madcap twists of Six-Gun Gorilla and The Spire in their new series Kennel Block Blues.
What It Is: Oliver is a good dog. A family dog. But without warning, he’s sentenced to Jackson Kennel, where he’s instantly placed on Death Row with the rest of his fellow inmates, awaiting a lethal appointment on The Table if salvation doesn’t come. He’ll need help escaping the Kennel, but when the stress of prison life builds, he starts escaping reality instead, imagining a fantasy world of cartoon friends. It’s time to break out…into a musical number?
A prison drama with dogs in a kennel. Interesting – how can I not take a look.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1 – Value $3.99
Power Rangers are coming back in a big way:
What’s to Love: With over four million viewers per week watching episodes that air three times a day, seven days a week; an awareness of above 90% for men and women ages 7-54; and a new film coming in 2017, Saban’s Power Rangers are more popular than ever. Dive headfirst into our original, modern, ongoing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series that will appeal to both nostalgic fans and new readers who enjoy epic, action-adventure fantasy stories.
I never got into the Power Rangers – but I’m still curious about what direction they’ll be taking with this series and the new movie. This is also hand signed in the bottom left corner by the cover artist James Campbell!
BONUS – Might Morphin Power Rangers #1 Launch Pary Variant – Value $3.99
This is the same issue as the one above, except it’s a Power Rangers Launch Party variant cover. According to Midtown Comics, there’s no extra value in the cover, but it’s still cool and looks old school.
Verdict: Lots of great stuff this month from Comicboxer! Not only that, we also get a hand-signed copy of an issue, I always love those little special touches – it really makes your unboxing experience that much more unique and exciting! While I’m not a big Power Rangers fan, I’m definitely holding onto a signed edition. On top of that, I’m excited to read the 4 non-Power Rangers comics!
