Comic Bento Subscription Box Review + Coupon – April 2016
Comic Bento is a geek/comic subscription box that sends a surprise selection of graphic novels with at least $60 worth of comics in every box!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Comic Bento
The Cost: $25 ($20 + $5 s/h)
COUPON: Save 15% off of any length subscription with coupon code FRIEND15
The Products: A surprise selection of graphic novels with at least $60 worth of comics
Ships to: US and Canada
Good To Know: I’m calculating value for each novel based on their sticker value and not from online websites like Amazon.
The box included a card with some information about each selection this month. This month’s theme was Elemental.
Book of Death – Value $14.99
Book of Death is awesome! This is one that I’ve read a bit, but not all 4 of these issues included in this volume – so this selection is a big win for me.
Surface Tension – Value $16.99
This title is new to me but sounds interesting. Mysterious coral drew 99% of humanity into the sea – so this involves a lot of sea monsters and aliens!
Fantastic Four Season One – Value $24.99
The hero volume this month is this Fantastic Four issue. This issue is similar to the Daredevil Season One sent in September last year. I liked that comic, so I’m sure I’ll like this one as well. This is also a hardback volume and is sealed.
The Four Points: Horsemen – Value $12.99
This might be a first – this is an exclusive Comic Bento cover variant – hopefully, we’ll get more of that!
They thought she was crazy, and locked her away from the rest of the world. Yet, following a family tragedy, Gia Sorentino has inherited an empire–and with it, the keys to unlocking some of the most unimaginable secrets of mankind. Together, with three other women who possess abilities of inhuman nature, Gia embarks on a journey to discover the full potential of their collective powers.
Interesting. I’m not sure it’s a read that I’ll like, but I do love venturing into the comic unknown!
Verdict: I feel like I’m always on the fence with Comic Bento. I like it because you get a lot of comics to read, but they’re not timely stories. That’s something to keep in mind if you’re thinking of subscribing. With that in mind, they do stick more towards lesser known titles, so it’s still a great source for discovery – plus, if you like the title, you typically have 4+ issues to read!
