Comic Block is another one of my favorite subscription boxes that by now I have had to cancel. I miss it very much though! Once I'm more financially stable, it will be one of the first ones I resubscribe to.
This one, I was really excited for because I knew there would be a Back to the Future comic because of Back to the Future Day being in October. It was a great month for nerdy subscription boxes! Each Comic Block comes with 3-4 comic books (variants, a lot of the time!), a T-shirt, as well as extra goodies.
This was one of the first things I saw when I opened the box and I couldn't be happier! I LOVE this variant cover! If you can't tell in the picture, the DeLorean's license plate is the Comic Block logo :) I love variant covers because it definitely adds to the value of the book and I just love exclusive items, especially in subscription boxes. It makes everyone who receives them have some sort of special bond.
"Back to the Future creator and screenwriter Bob Gale returns to the ongoing adventures of Doc Brown and Marty McFly in this new series from IDW. 'Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines' takes us back to 1985 to witness the meeting of these two legendary time travellers, and then takes us back even further!"
I'm not actually sure if this is a variant cover, but it does say Comic Block on it, so it's at least exclusive in some way. My mom and I watched Heroes back when it was on, so I thought about watching the new Heroes: Reborn series. This is the prelude to that, so this will be cool to start with if I ever do watch it.
"This all-new comic series ties into the events of the series and is from the team behind the new NBC show! As the story unfolds on screen, the lives and backgrounds of the key players are also examined in this comic series, together creating a richer tapestry and immersion in the world of Heroes Reborn!"
"With rise of the tomb raider shaking up the video game industry this November, now's the time to step into the world of Lara Croft, who in this comic book adventure must stop a group of cultists from causing worldwide cataclysmic devastation! Sounds like an ominous task, but if we know Lara, she's up for the challenge!"
I don't know much about Spawn but I like the simple design of this t-shirt. It's an exclusive design by ShirtPunch!
I actually follow Lee Howard on instagram and I knew this looked familiar! As an added bonus, 100 of the prints were signed by the artist. I was not a lucky one this month!
