BM_Cv36_LEGOvar_Comp-720x1107Batman #36 by Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo: LEGO Joker Variant – DC Comics
Everyone’s favorite super villain is back in Snyder and Capullo’s “Endgame” storyline, and things appear to be getting more dark and twisted than ever! The fact that this variant has a LEGO version of the clown prince of crime gracing the cover made it a shoe-in for this month’s box!




All-New_Captain_America_Vol_1_1_Textless All New Captain America #1 by Rick Remender & Stuart Immonen – Marvel Comics

A bold, new direction for Captain America! This issue, featuring former Falcon Sam Wilson in his new role as Captain America is groundbreaking and will be looked back upon as an important moment in the history of Marvel Comics.



Superior_Iron_Man_1_Tom_Fowler_RRG_VariantSuperior Iron Man #1 by Tom Taylor and Yildiray Cinar “Groot in a Bottle” variant – Marvel Comics 

Tony Stark has been bitten by the Axis bug, and Iron Man is feeling a lot more like a jerk than he usually is. This special “Rocket and Groot” variant cover illustrated by Tom Fowler pays tribute to the famous Iron Man “Demon in a Bottle” cover.




4212079-01The Kitchen #1 – by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle – Vertigo Comics

It’s the 1970s, in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Jimmy Brennan and his fellow mobsters have gone to prison and there’s nobody left to continue on with the business, save for the mob wives! This is a classic gangster story told from a completely different point of view. An added bonus is the great cover by Becky Cloonan.




humans_01The Humans #1 by Keenan Marshall Keller, & Tom Neely – Image Comics

If Sons of Anarchy and Planet of the Apes got married, this would be their offspring. The Humans is balls out exploitation on the printed page. Nothing is off limits in this book. It’s been generating a decent amount of buzz on the comic con circuit over the last year, and Image Comics has high hopes for the book.




odyc1ODY-C #1 by Matt Fraction & Christian Ward – Image Comics

One of the greatest stories ever told, Homer’s The Odyssey, is retold here with a few changes. First, instead of the world of Ancient Greece the story takes place in a futuristic, sci-fi setting. Second, all the male roles such as Odysseus are gender-swapped into female characters. Also – there’s an 8-page fold out!



Zero12-Cover-ec511BONUS BOOK! Zero #12 by Ales Kot & Adam Gorham SIGNED EDITION – Image Comics

Zero is a great book by Ales Kot that is in development to be a TV show at some point in the future. Each issue, Ales invites a different artist to draw the book. This issue was penciled by Adam Gorham, who graciously signed copies of the book for us to include in this month’s shipment! Adam is also working on TMNT/Ghostbusters right now for IDW Comics.

**CONTEST – Enter to win a FREE month of ComicBoxer. Click here to enter!**

THANK YOU for participating in September 2014’s MYSTERY BOX! We’re really excited about the picks we made this month, and we hope you will be too! People who were lucky enough to get in on September’s box will be happy to know that one of the books we selected has been selling for as high as $30 on eBay this week! With our mystery boxes going for as little as $16.99 a month, that’s quite the return on investment! How did this month’s comics make the cut? Read below and find out!


deathofwolv1_1024x1024Death of Wolverine #1 by Charles Soule & Steve McNiven – Marvel Comics
Charles Soule has recently signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Comics and he works here with the brilliant Steve McNiven on what is the most anticipated book of the Summer and Fall! This is the series where everyone’s favorite X-Man finally meets his end. This book uses a technology Marvel calls “Holo-foil etching” to create the cool effect you see on the cover.



 Edge_of_Spider-Verse_Vol_1_2Edge of Spider-Verse #2 by Jason LaTour & Robbi Rodriguez – Marvel Comics

Edge of Spider-Verse has been one of the top-selling comics throughout the month of September, but THIS issue was almost an instant sell-out! Featuring the debut of the alternate universe “Spider-Gwen”, this comic had everyone talking. Great writing by LaTour, incredible artwork by Rodiriguez, and a now CONFIRMED ongoing comic for Spider-Gwen, have driven prices of this book up to as much as $30 on sites like eBay – wow!


godhatesGod Hates Astronauts #1 by Ryan Browne – Image Comics 

It’s not all doom and gloom in the world of comics. If you’re looking for a good laugh look no further than Ryan Browne’s cult sensation “God Hates Astronauts”! The series was originally released as a Kickstarter-funded graphic novel. This all-new ongoing storyline features NASA vs. Astro-farmers and characters with names like “Admiral Tiger Eating a Cheeseburger” who is quite literally a tiger who is constantly eating a cheeseburger. How awesome is that?



rochelimit1Roche Limit #1 by Michael Moreci & Vic Malhotra – Image Comics

One of the more popular offerings from Image Comics in the month of September, Roche Limit tells the story of a space colony for which many had high aspirations. Unfortunately the colony is now a haven for “crime and terrible secrets”. Moreci has proved himself an excellent storyteller through his Hoax Hunters series, and Malhotra’s art is the perfect choice for this sci-fi noir story. We have high hopes for this book!


wildsend1Wild’s End #1 by Dan Abnett & I.N.J. Culbard – BOOM Studios

Boom Studios states that this book will appeal to fans of War of the Worlds, Mouseguard, and even Edgar Wright films such as Shaun of the Dead and World’s End – and you know what? We wholeheartedly agree! This is a fantastic tale by former Guardians of the Galaxy writer Dan Abnett about Clive, Peter, and Gilbert’s quest to fight back against an alien invasion in a rural English town in the 1930s. Oh, and all the residents of the town are animals. Sold!

July 2014 Mystery Box Contents Revealed!

A couple of weeks ago we shipped out our July 2014 MYSTERY BOXES to customers who participated in the program. It was our last box shipped under the old program. Due to the success of our Mystery Boxes, we have launched a separate website – ComicBoxer the one you’re on right now! – to handle our monthly mystery box program. Consider checking it out if you haven’t already! By our calculations, both June and July’s Mystery Boxes have seen big increases in value over the initial $19.99 investment.

Here’s what was included in July’s shipment (click the images for larger versions):

grayson1Grayson #1 by Tim Seeley, Tom King, & Mikel Janin – DC Comics
This is an all-new ongoing series starring Dick Grayson, the former Nightwing and one of the most popular characters in the Bat-Family. Super Spies are in, and Grayson is aiming to show he’s got what it takes to be the greatest spy of all. This is written by Tim Seeley of Revival and Hack/Slash fame.

spread1Spread #1 by Justin Jordan & Kyle Strahm – Image Comics
Definitely reminiscent of Lone Wolf and Cub, the main character “No” is immune to a strange living virus known as “The Spread” and must protect a child which may hold the key to eliminating The Spread once and for all. Those who have read Jordan’s Luther Strode books won’t be too surprised by the action and gore found within the pages of this book!

rocket-stanleeRocket Raccoon #1 by Skottie Young: Stan Lee Lego Variant – Marvel Comics
Mark our words, this WILL be the summer of Rocket Raccoon! He’s poised to become one of the most popular characters in pop culture with the arrival of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This book is illustrated and written by Skottie Young, and the variant we have included here features the man himself, Stan Lee – in LEGO form!

spidey2099-1Spider-Man 2099 #1 by Peter David and Will Sliney: Skottie Young Variant – Marvel Comics
Everyone’s favorite futuristic Spider-Man from the 1990s is back and this time he’s stranded in our present! Miguel O’Hara’s new adventures begin here, written by Peter David who is also Spider-Man 2099’s original creator. We have included the Skottie Young variant cover here, because Spidey covers by him have climbed in value!

lifeafter1The Life After #1 by Joshua Fialkov and Gabo – Oni Press
The Life After takes a look at a man breaking through the barriers of the monotonous afterlife, and has been getting great reviews. The story is written by Joshua Hale Fialkov, hot on the heels of his successful comic book The Bunker which is being developed for television.

Low_01-1Low #1 by Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini – Image Comics
A beautiful looking comic which is set in a world where the sun is expanding, and scorches the Earth above. Humanity has retreated to the depths of the ocean while looking for an exodus to another world. Painted art by Greg Tocchini compliments Remender’s masterful writing; he’s been on fire lately with success on books such as Deadly Class and Black Science, in addition to several titles at Marvel.
