Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - kaijumax

Kaijumax : Season 2 #1 – Value $3.99

Get ready for the all-new second season of Kaijumax! All the Red Humongo wants to do is go straight now that he’s out on parole, but his good-for-nothing brother Green Humongo has escaped from Kaijumax and is crashing at his house, with fellow escapee Electrogor in tow. Out-of-work guard Jeong drinks his troubles away on the moon, while new police recruit Chisato throws herself enthusiastically into her first day on the job. Also: Blindside tackles! Filial piety! Savage beatings! And… a Flintstones reference?

I wasn’t a big fan of this one – but I’m sure a lot of people will enjoy.

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - deadpool masacre

Deadpool Masacre #1 – Value $3.99

This one was…interesting. As you might be able to tell, this was translated to Spanish and then back to English via an online translation software – which makes for a fun gag up front, but then just difficult reading once you get into it. Masacre is the Deadpool of Mexico – which is cool, and the character is awesome – I may have just been dismayed by the translation thing.

Months ago, we were proud to bring you DEADPOOL TRES PUNTO UNO — a tale told all in Spanish, revealing MASACRE, the Deadpool of Mexico! Due to popular demand (because apparently you were too lazy to translate it for yourself) Marvel has taken to an unspecified Internet translation site and is re-presenting the comic in POORLY TRANSLATED ENGLISH! Just in time for the “Fifth of May!”

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - steamlore

Steam Lore: A Curious Publication #1 – Value $3.99

This was the title that was missing last month. It’s a bit of a Steampunk/Horror mix. This was another title that didn’t suit me this month.

Presenting a thrilling, chilling blend of steampunk and Gothic horror, Lovecraft-ed with care! What is the secret of Amberleigh’s Quarterly Journal of Adventure and Esoterica? Is it just a harmless Victorian comic book, or do its stories of strange worlds, dark ceremonies and terrifying creatures hold a dire warning of real danger in our world?

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - 4001 AD

4001 AD #1 – Value $3.99

At the dawn of the 41st century, the future of Earth will be decided in the stars. This May…the rebellion begins in 4001 A.D.! One hundred years from today, Father – the benevolent artificial intelligence that governs the island nation of Japan – will gain sentience. To defend its borders, Father will take drastic action by launching Japan into space…where its people will thrive in isolation, away from the overpopulated and resource-deprived planet below.

This was another miss for me this month – I couldn’t get into most stories from this delivery, unfortunately.

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - Renato Jones

Renato Jones: The One % #1 – Value $3.99

The One% own more than half the world’s wealth. They’ve crashed economies, bought
governments, and have amassed more power than any other group in history. And they still don’t have enough. With this kind of power how can anyone maje them pay? WHO will make them pay? Enter Renato Jones, a mysterious vigilante, out to even the score. And when he enters the fray THE SUPER-RICH ARE SUPER F***ED.

This one had an Anime vibe to it – the artwork and layout style is fantastic, though.

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - Weavers

Weavers #1 – Value $3.99

Sid, a young man with nothing going for himself, becomes an unlikely new addition to The Weavers, a brutal, East Coast crime family whose members are bound to loyalty thanks to the supernatural spider inside each one of them, granting them powerful—and often grotesque—abilities. Once he realizes what he’s capable of, Sid sets out to pursue his own secret agenda, counter to the group’s objectives. But he doesn’t have much time—the longer the spider is inside him, the more loyal he becomes to the Weavers…

This is one that I really enjoyed. Everyone should check this title out!

Blindbox Comics Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - 4 kids walk into a bank

4 Kids Walk Into A Bank #1 – Value $10+

I was unsure how to value this month’s variant. Everyone got the same variant this month – but they’ll be returning to the old system where they have 3 levels of variants next month. This was limited to only 250 copies.

The story is intriguing as well. This was easily my favorite from this month’s collection – and is a story that I’m going to try and follow!

A FUN(ISH) CRIME CAPER ABOUT CHILDREN! 11 year old Paige and her weirdo friends have a problem: a gang of ex-cons need her dad’s help on a heist… the problem is those ex-cons are morons. If Paige wants to keep her dad out of trouble, she’s going to have to pull off the heist herself. Like Wes Anderson remaking RESERVOIR DOGS, 4KWIAB is a very dark & moderately humorous story about friendship, growing up, d & d, puking, skinheads, grand larceny, & family.

Verdict: It ‘s always fun to try new titles for me, I get excited when I find that next run. This month, the titles were just not in my ballpark, which happens with comic subscriptions from time to time – but I’ve also found that to be pretty rare in this instance, so I’m already excited for next month. Having said that, I still found one or two that I’m definitely going forward with! I always say that these boxes are best for discovery, unfortunately, it’s hard to like everything that is sent to you – and that was the case for me this month.

  1. You should give the 4001 AD series another try. I’m not usually into the futuristic/sci-fi storylines, but I like what Valiant has done so far here.

    • I really appreciate that feedback – maybe I should give it a full volume…
