X-Men Classic Lineup Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s exclusive shirt features the classic X-Men line: Cyclops, Ice Man, Beast, Jean Grey, and Angel! I’m a fan of this month’s shirt – it’s a nice callout to the original team.
DC Comics Lil’ Bombshells: Catwoman – Value $8 on Amazon + Exclusive Variant
This Catwoman vinyl figure finishes off their 3-month long Lil’ Bombshells series!
I do love that this is highlighting her cat burglar side of life with her holding a giant ruby!
There are a lot more to collect if they’ve drawn you in!
Power Rangers and Justice League #1 – Value $3.99 + Exclusive Variant Cover
There were 4 comics this month and the first one featured two huge franchises – Justice League and Power Rangers.
I’d say this is a Power Rangers tale that gets tossed into the DC Justice League world. Let’s see the Megazord vs the Batmobile, please!
Two of comics greatest teams team up for the very first time! Something terrible has happened in Angel Grove! When the Command Center is breached and the teleporters are damaged, Zack is flung into another universe, where he’s mistaken for a villain by a mysterious masked vigilante. Can the other Power Rangers get to their friend in time to save him from Batman? Co-published with BOOM! Studios.
The Raid Anthology Primer – Value $3.99?
This is a unique offering from Comic Block – and exclusively for Comic Block.
First, here’s a little bit of info about RAID:
The Royal Academy of Illustration & Design, collectively known as RAID, is a cooperative art studio located in Toronto’s beloved Little Italy District whose primary focus is on sequential art, illustration, and design featuring the talents of Kalman Andrasofszky, Scott Hepburn, Ian Herring, Irma Kniivila, Nimit Malavia, Francis Manapul, Ramón Pérez, Marcus To, & Tonci Zonjic.
This is actually just a primer for a larger project and features 4 stories: The Well, Here There Be Monsters, Junior Citizens, and Between Stores.
Agents of Pact #1 – Value $3.99
The next story comes from the publisher Chapterhouse. This is essential a super team of the charters within Chapterhouse’s universe.
The Chapterverse launches with this brand new series! The X-Files meets Velvet meets Birds of Prey. In Canada. There’s an extra-dimensional breach in the Canadian North. Enter P.A.C.T., the paranormal investigation arm of CSIS. With Captain Canuck AWOL, P.A.C.T director Manon DesChamps (formerly Fleur De Lys) must forge her own team of super-agents, pulled from Equilibrium, the Aurora Dawn, and other less savoury sources. She affectionately calls them her Fleurs de Conflit but to the world at large, they are: The Agents of P.A.C.T.!
Assassin’s Creed Uprising #1 – Value $3.99 + Exclusive Variant Cover
I just received this same issue in the February My Geek Box (with a different cover variant). This is a brand new series from Titan Comics that dives into Assassin’s Creed.
Join us for this game-changing new chapter in the ongoing Assassin’s Creed saga! With the Phoenix Project nearing its completion, tensions are running high for both the Brotherhood and the Templar Order. A new world order is on the horizon and only Charlotte and her new allies have the knowledge and skill to save humanity from subjugation. Meanwhile, after discovering a rebel faction within his order, Templar agent, Otso Berg begins to question his loyalties.
Catwoman Print – Value $10?
The last item is an exclusive print, which is typically the case for Comic Block. This month featured Catwoman to go along with your new vinyl figure – just like the previous two months!
Verdict: Since Comic Block changed its format, each month has been great and it feels like there’s a lot of value in each shipment. With this delivery, you’re getting 4 comics, a shirt, and exclusive vinyl figure variant, and a print – that is awesome value! I’d also love to see them continue to do another variant figure series like they did with Lil’ Bombshells in the near future!
