Comic Block is still a new subscription box offered by Nerd Block. It usually features 3 (mostly exclusive variant) comic books, a T-shirt (also usually exclusive) and other comic book related items. I'm all about expanding my comic book collection, so this was definitely something I wanted to try out for a least a few months. Each box comes with an info card detailing each of the comics inside and a little bit of information about their storylines.
This is a new series from IDW and Ghostbusters is all the rage right now with the new movie coming out. I've always liked Ghostbusters stories so this is a welcome addition to my collection.
The variant cover exclusive to Comic Block subscribers, features the animated characters recreating the classic movie promo posters!
This is another exclusive variant cover for Comic Block subscribers! I've never read any Tank Girl comics before and actually only recently first heard of them. The artwork was the first thing to catch my eye - it was very familiar to me. The info card that comes in the box said the artwork was done by co-creator and artist Jamie Hewlett whose also known for his work with Gorillaz! Of course! This series is a new 21st Century take on the classic Tank Girl.
At first, I was a little weary about this one - the cover art looked so childish, I was worried it was a diluted children's story based on the lovable Groot character. Luckily, the inside art totally cooled my worries - the artwork is great and it looks like we have the usual back and forth between him and Rocket. I love Guardians of the Galaxy and I love their relationship so this will be a good read!
I could always use more pens at work so these are a win! I'm not a huge Superman fan but I love the vintage look of the designs on them. Plus, they're fine point - which I love!
Each box has an exclusive T-shirt, which honestly pays for the cost of the box in itself so I'm always happy with that. This design is great! And perfect for the upcoming Batman V. Superman movie. It's a nice subtle design!
