We recently shipped our June MYSTERY BOXES to the lucky people who decided to participate in the program. It was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who placed their orders.

The best news for those who purchased Mystery Boxes is that, judging by eBay prices, the original value of $19.99 for the box has since SKYROCKETED to around $55 due to the success of the books that we selected. So what did we choose? Have a look!


superman_doomed_coverSuperman: DOOMED #1 Signed by Ken Lashley – DC Comics

Superman vs. Doomsday in the early 90s, for better or for worse, was a defining moment in the history of comics. DC looks to make history again this time around with Superman taking on his deadliest foe once again. Believe us – this is MUCH different than the last time they met, and the last few pages of this story will surprise you! Brilliantly illustrated by the legendary Ken Lashley, this comic was signed at our store on May 23, 2014


outcast1Outcast #1 by Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta – Image Comics

We’d be fools to not include the new book from Robert Kirkman in our Mystery Box. This time the Walking Dead creator takes on the phenomenon of demonic possession and exorcism. Plus it’s an extra sized issue with no ads! If any of the books in this month’s box have a chance of becoming a television or movie property in the future, it’s this one. When Robert Kirkman writes, Hollywood pays attention!



wicked_divine_omalley_cover_a_pThe Wicked and the Divine #1 by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie, variant cover by Bryan Lee O’Malley – Image Comics
The team that brought us Phonogram and Young Avengers bring us their most anticipated title yet – the story of Gods who re-incarnate themselves into the bodies of young people every century. There’s lots of buzz around this book, especially with the variant cover included here by Scott Pilgrim artist Bryan Lee O’Malley!



cover of superman 32Superman #32 by Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. – DC Comics

This is a landmark issue for the Man of Steel. It features new creative team that DC hopes will inject some much-needed excitement into their flagship character. It also marks John Romita Jr’s first regular title with DC Comics! This one is a no-brainer, as many people will be reading this book to see how Johns and Romita Jr do. It’s make or break time for Superman, and we’re betting that they do a fantastic job.



wonder-woman32Wonder Woman #32 – Bombshell Variant Cover – DC Comics

The Bombshell variants by Ant Lucia being offered by DC Comics have been absolutely stunning, and we believe this cover to be the “crown jewel” in that collection. Wonder Woman is presented in pin-up style, mimicking the famous 1940’s propaganda poster “We Can Do It”.




emptyman1Empty Man #1 by Cullen Bunn and Vanesa R. Del Rey – BOOM Studios

A very creepy release by Boom Studios, and one that has had a lot of people talking! Cullen Bunn is a man on FIRE lately, writing hit books such as The Sixth Gun, Magneto, Helheim, and the Deadpool Kills series of books. So it’s no surprise we were willing to take a gamble on him this time around with Empty Man – a story about a mysterious illness or virus that has been affecting people across the country. After reading the first issue, we’re in for the long haul!
