The Walking Dead #163 – Value $0.25

They included a bonus issue for their last shipment – it’s the $.25 issue of The Walking Dead #163.

Blind-box-comics-march-2017-0010

This is a pretty pivotal issue to the gang’s latest battle – I’ll try not to spoiler anything! This is about the peak of their latest challenge.

Smoke Town #1 – Value $3.99

The next issue was from a small publisher, Scout Comics, entitled ‘Smoke House’.

Blind-box-comics-march-2017-0012

This issue follows a wife covering up the death of her husband and is setting up a much more grand tale that will be comprised of a series of different chapters and characters.

Savage Things #1 – Value $3.99

If you want to read a comic that starts off with a bang – this might be for you!

Blind-box-comics-march-2017-0014

This one was pretty gripping right from the start – leaving you with a ton of questions.

From Amazon:

Twenty-five years ago, a secret government organization kidnapped children and trained them to be chaos agents who went on to foment unrest and execute enemies of the state around the world. When these cold and unfeeling creations proved too difficult to control, the powers that be exterminated their kill squad with extreme prejudice.

The Belfry – Value $3.99

The Belfry is a one-shot issue that dives into the horror beneath the surface – namely, vampires and bats, of course.

Blind-box-comics-march-2017-0016

As a one-shot, it flies through the short story of just a sliver of an event – it’s a great horror read.

From Amazon:

When an airliner crashes in a remote jungle, everyone walks away unscathed only to find you can’t escape the lush, brutal world of the Belfry. From Logan storyboard artist and Hugo Award-nominated writer/artist GABRIEL HARDMAN (INVISIBLE REPUBLIC, KINSKI, Star Wars Legacy), THE BELFRY is a self-contained one-shot that may just strip you of your humanity.

The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed #1 – Value $3.99

This mini-series extends the origin of Hellboy. More specifically, it takes a look at ‘The Visitor” who was sent to kill Hellboy at first appearance – who doesn’t want more Hellboy spin-off series?

Blind-box-comics-march-2017-0018

From Amazon:

In 1944 Hellboy was conjured in a ceremony meant to give Hitler the ultimate occult weapon. Fortunately, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm was there to witness, and to guide Hellboy to become the greatest paranormal detective in the world. But Bruttenholm wasn’t the only witness to Hellboy’s arrival. A visitor was there, sent to kill the Beast that had been prophesied to kill us all. What the visitor saw, and why he stayed his hand, leads to the most mysterious Hellboy spinoff yet …

Rat Queens Volume 2 #1 – Value $3.99

This one was…weird? Kind of an unexpected tone and journey from the cover.

Blind-box-comics-march-2017-0020

From Amazon:

A brand-new, booze-soaked tale of the Rat Queens reveals a growing menace within the very walls of Palisade. And while Dee may have run from her past, the bloated, blood-feasting sky god N’rygoth never really lets his children stray too far.

Unfortunately, it was my favorite.

Fissure #1 – Value $3.99 + Exclusive Variant Cover

This month’s blindVariant features Fissure from Vault Comics.

Blind-box-comics-march-2017-0023

There were only two levels to the variant this month – color edition (limited to 225) and black & white (limited to 100) – I received the rare black and white variant. The cover is super high-quality, too – I couldn’t be happier. The story itself was also a really good read!

Verdict: Blindbox Comics went out with a bang – this was a box full of good reads that I would’ve never found or picked out on my own. I’ll definitely miss this subscription – I’ve discovered numerous titles through their service that I would not have. If you’re looking for other comic subscriptions to fill the void – check out Comic Block, Comic Bento, and ComicBoxer.

What did you think of the final Blindbox Comics shipment?
