Colossus Shirt – Value $15?

I am loving this shirt. Colossus has always been a favorite of mine since I was a kid – so I will absolutely be sporting this shirt. He’s also the focal point of my personal Holy Grail of statues…one day I’ll get it!

DC Comics Lil’ Bombshells: Poison Ivy – Value $8 on Amazon + Exclusive Variant

From December – February, each Comic Block will include a DC Comics Lil’ Bombshell figure. So far, each has had an exclusive variation to the sculpt as well.

Comic-Block-January-2017-0025

Comic-Block-January-2017-0026

Comic-Block-January-2017-0027

This month features Poison Ivy – and next month is Catwoman. These three will be a good start to a new collection!

Comic-Block-January-2017-0028

The New Batman Adventures Batman Bendable Figure – Value $11 on Amazon

This month includes a bendable figure of both Batman and Robin from The New Batman Adventures.

Comic-Block-January-2017-0029

Comic-Block-January-2017-0031

I’ve always loved the animated Batman design – one of the cooler depictions of the caped crusader in my opinion.

Comic-Block-January-2017-0030

Similar to this month’s Loot Crate DX bendable figure set – the cape has the material similar to a dentist bib.

Comic-Block-January-2017-0032

The New Batman Adventures Robin Bendable Figure – Value $8 on Amazon

Naturally, Robin pops in alongside batman!

Comic-Block-January-2017-0033

Comic-Block-January-2017-0035

It’s all the same sculpt style and cape material.

Comic-Block-January-2017-0036

There are more figures to collect! Too many collectibles!

Divinity 3: Stalinverse #1 – Value $3.99 + exclusive variant cover

Right off the bat, let’s just call out how amazing this Cosplay Cat variant cover is!

Comic-Block-January-2017-0016

This book is one of 4 – so it’s a shorter series to jump into. From Amazon:

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

That’s as straightforward as it’ll get! I liked this story!

Comic-Block-January-2017-0018

Khaal #1 – Value $3.99 + exclusive variant cover

This exclusive cover certainly has a Temple of Doom feel to it right?

Comic-Block-January-2017-0019

This one is definitely for mature audiences if you hadn’t guess from the cover. The story was ok, but I really enjoy the artwork.

From Amazon:

In the cold silence of a galaxy ripped apart by war, a prison ship drifts alone in the void. Aboard, three races are preparing for a battle that will determine the ruler of their eternal home. Khaal, the embattled, bloodthirsty, and unhinged leader of the human faction, will stop at nothing to triumph. Brand-new violent space opera of warring clans, gladiatorial arenas and political intrigue. Illustrated by globally renowned Meta-Barons artist Valentin Secher.

Red Sonja Volume 4 #1 – Value $3.99 + exclusive variant cover

I’ve never been a Red Sonja fan – but, Red Sonja in New York brings along all the insanity that it sounds like.

Comic-Block-January-2017-0022

From Amazon:

A new chapter for the Queen of the Hyrkanian Age. Our favorite warrior has faced the toughest of demons, foes and strange magic, but nothing has prepared this 6 ft. tall barbarian for…the modern world. Emerging from a subway construction site in New York City, confronted by cops and guns, Sonja fights for her survival in a new and hostile world. Is she here by accident or by design? Who brought her here, and why? By the creative team of Amy Chu (Poison Ivy, KISS) and Carlos Gomez (Dresden Files).

Poison Ivy Print – Value $10?

The last item is an exclusive print from W. Scott Forbes.

Comic-Block-January-2017-0014

It features a more new-age look to Gotham’s Poison Ivy – perfect to go along with your mini vinyl figure.

Verdict: They keep packing a ton of value into these Comic Blocks lately – kudos for pulling that off and still getting exclusive variant artwork! Just browsing the booklet, it look like we should have received Power Rangers/Justice League #1 – and that’s why the bendable figures were included. I’d definitely rather have more figures all the time – so I’m not that disappointed about the missing 4th comic.

What did you think of the January Comic Block?

  1. Ahhhhh, I want that poison Ivy so bad. I swapped for the Wonder Woman one last month. If anyone is looking to swap theirs let me know!
