UNBOXED: Star Wars Smuggler's Bounty - "Jabba's Palace"

Another month, another subscription box to break down!  Actually, I’ll be reviewing two this month because I was totally delayed in posting about July’s Smuggler’s Bounty from Funko. My apologies, dear readers!  This month’s box features all sorts of characters found in Jabba’s Palace from return of the Jedi.  Was it worth my $25 investment? You’ll have to hit the jump to find out!

Vote for 27 in this year's Harvey Awards!

Did you know that I was kinda sorta nominated for a Harvey Award this year? I wrote a short story for he amazing 27 Anthology for Red Stylo Media/Action Lab Comics, which features a slew of short comics inspired by the infamous “27 Club” of musicians that died at the age of 27. My story was inspired by the original bassist for grunge legends Hole, Kristen Pfaff.

This fantastic book has been nominated for Best Anthology at this year’s Harvey Awards!  If you are a comics professional, please consider voting for this anthology.  Don’t do it for me—do it for my amazing colleagues that worked so hard to put this great book together. I’m just one small cog in this machine, but I would love to see everyone’s hard work recognized at this year’s awards!

Voting ends August 8th and can be done here!

You can buy your copy of 27 here!

This might get a bit long and rambling, but I just got home from BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE and I have a few thoughts...

UNBOXED: Marvel Collectors Corp - "Women of Power"

While I am regularly subscribed to Funko’s Smuggler’s Bounty for Star Wars, I have been selectively purchasing the Collector Corps box for Marvel Comics. This month’s “Women of Power” theme was a great one, so I could not pass up this box.  Did it live to the hype? Was it worth the price?  Hit the jump to find out!

UNBOXED: Star Wars Smuggler's Bounty - "Bounty Hunters"

Another month, another subscription box as the newest Smuggler’s Bounty arrived over the weekend.  This month’s theme is Bounty Hunters and after a very strong box two months ago, the expectations were a little high for this one.  Was it worth the subscription price?  Hit the jump for my thoughts!

UNBOXED: Marvel Collector Corps - Civil War!

Back when I first started subscribing to Loot Crate (before dropping it, then starting again, then dropping it again), I posted my thoughts on each box when it shipped to me.  In an attempt to start posting on my website more (and getting back to more writing in general), I thought I’d continue reviewing any nerdy sporadic subscription boxes that I order as they arrive.

This week I received the newest Marvel Collector Corps box, celebrating the upcoming Captain America: Civil War film.  I dropped Funko’s Collector Corps box after the disappointing Guardians of the Galaxy box back in December. Was this box worth re-subscribing? Hit the jump to explore its contents and hear my thoughts!
