Premium Subscription Box Company Expands its Offerings With Comic Book Subscription
TORONTO, April 24, 2015 /CNW/ - Nerd Block, a leading e-commerce brand that specializes in monthly subscription boxes, is changing the way comic fans get their superhero fix with Comic Block. Like Nerd Block's other products, Comic Block offers subscribers exceptional retail value. Each shipment could include three different premium comics, which on occasion include exclusive and highly sought-after variant covers and graphic novels. Subscribers will also receive an exclusive limited-edition t-shirt as well as one comic-related collectible.
"Comic books have been a big part of nerd fandom for decades, but with so many of today's blockbuster films either being adaptations of classic comic tales or inspired by them, comics have never been such a huge cultural force," says Russ Montague, President of Nerd Block. "We've had tremendous response from subscribers whenever we've included comics in either Nerd Block or Arcade Block, and by introducing Comic Block, we're giving people even more compelling stories they're passionate for."
The books chosen for inclusion in Comic Block are all highly curated. Subscribers can expect to receive issues from some of the biggest new and ongoing series, including rare, limited-edition cover variants by industry professionals that won't be available anywhere else.
"Part of the fun of collecting comics is the sense of discovery," adds Montague. "My hope with Comic Block is that subscribers will not only get comics they were thinking of checking out anyway, but also get turned onto some series that they either were not aware of or that their local comic shops might not have ordered enough of."
Subscriptions for the first ever (collector's edition!) Comic Block are open now. The block will begin shipping on May 25.
