First up is a Batman collectible based on the 1960’s Adam West version of the DC Comics Icon.

Hopping over to Marvel Comics is a classic version of Iron Man on a solid black coffee mug. Perfect for those “Irish” coffees I’m sure Tony Stark enjoys.

Featuring a Ghost from many of the classic Super Mario games is a black slap watch perfect for any gamer needing to get somewhere..but only if you don’t look at it while moving.

Finally the shirt this month and easily my favorite of the batch is a Playing card-like Deadpool t-shirt, I especially enjoy the Taco Scepters he holds, very amusing.

Over all a nice collectibles box, I was not one of the lucky 1 in 7 to get a Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Burn Notice) Autograph, which would have been nice being as big a fan as I am but it’s the luck of the draw as always. Interesting news of next month is a Guarenteed  Willow print with either a Val Kilmer or Warwick Davis Autograph and just announced a special Gremlins items, will this be maybe a 80’s theme box? Only time will tell!

Hey all, Z  here with October’s Nerd Block Subscription box review and I have to say it was totally worth it. Not only were there great items but this month’s box was personally created by the one and only Kevin Smith!!

Now if your living in a cave, under a rock, or just not hipster enough to know who I am talking about Mr. Smith is a Movie writer/actor/director as well as a voice over actor and comic book writer. He will also be in the Newest Lego Batman video game playing the voice of..who else..Kevin Smith.

As big of a fan of both Marvel and DC comics (and having worked for both) this month’s box theme was COLLIDE: Marvel vs. DC and a good assortment was representing both companies as well as a couple Kevin Smith specific items.

First up was the shirt this month featuring Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes Characters Jay and Silent Bob dressed as the Dynamic Duo-ish lol Very nice shirt that surprised me as I’d never seen this one before anywhere really.

Next is a true Marvel V. DC item, POW! Brand Buttons featuring Spider-Man and Wolverine against Batman and Superman, which I find hilarious given the pending Bats vs Supes movie looming and the fact that Spidey kinda replaced the recently deceased Wolvie in the comics.

Next up was the promised OfficialAvengers Movie prop replica and I sort’ve had guessed it would be this or something else small like a shield pin but it’s the Captain America Trading cards that Marvel’s Agent’s of Shield Coulson had in the movie and subsequently “died” spilling blood on them. They came with a certificate of Authenticity card in the back of the deck as well.

For the DC side is this Arkham Asylum Patients Notes notebook, inside are even post-its and colored post-it tabs for marking certain notes by color code, pretty cool being a huge fan of the Arkham video game series.

Back over to Marvel is my 2nd ever POP! Marvel figure, Maskless Deadpool this time, so he can now sit next to my Groot figure and have very…odd…conversations together…very odd.

Another Kevin Smith themed item is these various stickers featuring such things as Lego Jay and Silent Bob, Super Jay and Silent Bob Bros., and of course some references to Smith’s newest movie Tusk with Walrus imagery.

Finally this month while not with the theme but still..it’s ZELDA related is a Mascot Dangler charm. I got the princess one but still, anything Zelda is alright in this Nerd/Geek’s view.

Overall one of the best boxes I’ve gotten since trying these sub boxes, let’s hoping it keeps up in the future!
