This month’s theme was As Seen On TV!
Each month comes with an information card detailing each graphic novel.
Rick and Morty Volume One – Value $19.99
I was really excited to find this as one of the selections this month – it’s Rick and Morty!!!
My favorite part of this comic is that it reads and looks just like the show. If you’re a fan of the show – you’ll find all the familiar voices are in your head and ready to churn out another Rick and Morty adventure.
The Blacklist: The Gambler – Value $14.99
The next novel features a new story from NBC’s The Blacklist.
I actually didn’t know that this show was still on. Liz and I watched most of the first season – Red was a good character, but it died on us pretty quickly. I do love how comics give extra life to these characters, though – if you’re a fan, why not consume more episodes?
Agents of SHIELD: The Coulson Protocols – Value $17.99
This is another show that I start and stopped. But, I’ve heard that it’s a lot better now, so I may have to start catching up.
This novel has all of your favorite characters from the show but allows them to interact with comic icons like Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Wolverine. If you’re not going to see that on TV, it’s great to have it in comic form!
Garbage Pail Kids: Comic Book Puketacular – Value $19.99
Yep – this is all the grossness you’d expect from the Garbage Pail Kids.
I can’t believe these characters are still around!? I collected the trading cards as a kid, so it was a bit of a throwback to read this.
It also came with a themed bookmark that looks like a TV remote.
Verdict: I was just mentioning that I love that comics can add new stories and dimensions to TV and movie characters, so this box was a hit for me. While you don’t normally receive extremely current graphic novels, there’s so much out there that it still works as a discovery tool, at least that’s been my experience. I can wait to read more and more Rick and Morty!
