Blindbox Comics is one of the newer comic subscription boxes out there. They have 3 different purchase options - BlindBox, BlindVariant, or BlindBox + BlindVariant in month-to-month, 3, 6, or 12-month frequencies.
This is a review of the BlindBox + BlindVariant subscription!
I'm going to try something new starting with this Comic Book Subscription Box review. I'll be including the variant value from Midtown Comics, when available!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The shipment comes with a letter listing the month's selections where they give their thoughts on the series/comic - it's great to get the little details about a series, or why they chose it.
Kennel Block Blues #1 – Value $3.99
I just got this issue last week in the February Comic Boxer. I haven't had the free time to sit down and read it yet, though - hopefully, this weekend will bring along some free time! In short, it's like Oz/Shawshank Redemption but at a kennel!
Voracious #1 - Value $4.99
Ok, maybe this is all you need to know: Jurassic Park Meets Top Chef! What?! This time travel comic is noted as being for mature audiences only. The curators love this one and noted that it give "Kennel Block Blues" a run for their money on'most original concept' - I'd say so!
Starve #6 - Value $3.99
This is actually the second season for Starve. From Amazon:
Critically-acclaimed STARVE is back for a second season! Chef Gavin Cruikshank shifts his focus from the soundstage to the streets, addressing real world themes of food scarcity and class warfare. Smart, subversive, and darkly comic, STARVE is an instant cult classic.
Are any readers Starve fans out there? Do you suggest I go back to season 1 first?
Imposter #1 - Value $3.99
Lots of mature titles this month, and Imposter follows suit. I love getting new titles like, especially from a newer publisher, 21 Pulp. Even better, James Patrick, the writer, signed copies for Blinbox!
Power Man and Iron Fist #1 - Value $3.99
With the launch of Daredevil Season 2 today, it brings the Defenders back to the top of my mind - and I'm so excited to get the series' from the last two members, Luke Cage and Iron Fist!
TMNT 52 original artwork layout - Value ???
I was shocked with happiness to find this!
Several shipments included a hand drawn piece of artwork by Robert Atkins. This pencil sketch is nothing short of amazing! And, it is definitely hand drawn - you can see the indentations where he was pressing pencil to paper.
TMNT #55 - Value $3.99
Variant Value - $15.99
I can't recommend this series more to TMNT fans. It's a great refresh in an already awesome universe. This variant edition was limited to 600 issues. You could have also received Splinter (limited to 300) or Vintage Mikey (limited to 100). I've yet to get one of the super limited editions! Fingers crossed next month!
Verdict: This month's Blindbox Comics shipment was packed to the brink with awesomeness! Like most comic subscriptions, they're best used if you value curation, discovery, and limited edition variants! If you're looking for all three of those, this box is a great subscription for you.
If you're pulling into Chicago this weekend for C2E2 - Make sure to check out Blindbox Comics at booth 1416! They'll have previews of next month's variants, and special offers! If you do, be sure to send some pictures our way!
