I was really pleased with last month’s initial Comic Block. It’s not as extravagant or junk-filled (I mean “junk-filled” in a nice way) as other mystery boxes such as Nerd Block, but it’s a fun, fairly inexpensive treat for a comic fan to look forward to every month.
Apparently they won’t be doing anything special with the design of the box the Block ships in, so I didn’t bother taking a photo of it this month. Check here to see what it looks like.
Short and sweet, here’s the contents of the June 2015 Comic Block:
- Groot #1 (Marvel Comics) – Seriously? They gave Groot his own book? Anyway, this is a Comic Block exclusive variant.
- 21st Century Tank Girl #1 (Titan Comics) – Variant cover. I’ve never read Tank Girl and I’ve never seen the movie. Not sure if that will ever change.
- Ghostbusters: Get Real #1 (IDW Publishing) – Another variant cover. Looking forward to reading this as it’s based on the animated series. Can’t be any worse than the new Ghostbusters movie sounds.
- “Superhero Writing Apparatus” – Avengers pen/notepad set. Apparently this one is a random pull as I could’ve ended up with four Superman pens or a Captain America pen/notepad set instead.
- “BVS.” – A ShirtPunch.com exclusive taking inspiration from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
I’ll read Groot, I’ll read Ghostbusters, I’ll wear the t-shirt and use the pen. Don’t care much for Tank Girl but it’s good that Comic Block throws in an indie comic or two every month. Overall, another winning month for Comic Block!
