Comic Bento is a comic book subscription box that delivers 4 different comic books/graphic novels to your door every month! Each month they pick a theme and curate stories based on that theme. I actually found this subscription box on Facebook because those google ads are all creepy now and know exactly what I'm interested in. I had just missed the Science Fiction theme in August but I caught subscriptions in time to get the Fantasy theme in September. There's also a code to get your first box for 50% off, but I'll get to that later! This subscription box comes from Canada so shipping to the US takes longer than most domestic boxes. I only just got this box this past Saturday!
Each box comes with a letter from the Project Manager explaining the theme, the comics included, a little bit about their stories, and why they were picked. They list six comics and each box will include any four of those six.
The value of this box is crazy good! I used a coupon code to get my first box 50% off so I only paid $15.00 ($10.00 plus $5.00 US shipping). The total value of the books I received is $64.88 in retail prices! That's really impressive! I also like that the comic books included are published by big name publishers like IDW. I wouldn't be disappointed if they were all more obscure publishers, but it just adds credibility to the box to have these included, in my opinion. I have since cancelled my subscription because I wasn't interested in October's theme which is HORROR. But I will definitely keep an eye on upcoming themes and resubscribe when one I like shows up.
If you're a comic book lover, I highly suggest this subscription box! You'll probably receive something you wouldn't normally have found or bought for yourself. Plus you can't argue with the price-value ratio! Head over to www.comicbento.com to sign up! Use the promo code 'OctPromo' to receive $10.00 off your first box. Now, here's the tricky part. Subscriptions are cut off on the 10th of the month, so even though the October promo code is still valid (and it says your subscription will start with the October box), I believe you'll actually receive the November box next. Does that make sense? If you want to be sure, you might want to contact them but the promo code IS still valid for $10.00 off. We don't yet know what November's theme will be but I will post about it when I do because I'll be checking for it when the time comes!
