***STRETCH GOALS HAVE BEEN ADDED BELOW!***

Our second series of variant covers have also been announced - please click on "UPDATES" tab above to learn more!

As both a fan of the comic book medium, and as a die-hard collector, I have often felt that something was missing from the comics industry.  I was often looking for a product that didn't exist:  a service that could introduce readers to the best new titles each month, and also add to the excitement of collecting modern comics.  With Blindbox Comics, we hope to fill this void, by appealing to the duality of the comic book fan - reader and collector - to deliver a product unlike anything else on the market. 

 Here's how it works: First, we pore over the publisher solicitations months in advance and carefully select five of the most interesting, creative and exciting new releases. In most cases, this will include first issues of promising new titles, but they could also feature the start of a new creative team, a key turning point / major event, or introduction of an important new character. In all cases, these books will be great jumping-on points for new readers! Each BLINDBOX consists of five core "must-read" titles! With these five books, we hope to deliver to you the thrill of discovery, by introducing you to quality books that you might not otherwise pick up on your own.

Second, we will work with top artists and publishers to create multiple exclusive variant covers for one of our favorite books. Print runs for each month's variants will be staggered (rare / rarer / rarest), so that certain covers are much more elusive than others. Each variant will be blind-bagged, and each BLINDVARIANT contains one randomly inserted variant cover. In this way, each customer has the same chance of receiving that month's rarest variant cover. The thrill of the chase begins here!

We offer three core products:

BLINDBOX - contains five curated monthly releases

BLINDVARIANT - contains one of our exclusive variant covers (randomly filled)

BLINDBOX PLUS - includes five curated monthly releases AND one randomly inserted exclusive variant cover Each product is offered as a monthly recurring subscription, and also in 3, 6, and 12 month intervals.

To add even more intrigue and increase the challenge for collectors, some of our exclusive variant covers will also be part of a much larger set, or series, of related releases. This may be across the same title over multiple issues, or across multiple titles from the same publisher, etc. 

 Our singular mission is to deliver a premium comic book experience that appeals equally to both dimensions of the typical comic book fan. Above all, as our customers, we want you to have more fun as collectors, while also expanding your horizons as readers by exposing you to fantastic new books worthy of the spotlight.

 **PLEASE NOTE** - For the sake of the rewards schedule listed below, "BLINDBOX" is synonymous with "BLINDBOX PLUS" as it is described on the website.  If you choose a "BLINDBOX" subscription option below, you will be receiving "BLINDBOX PLUS".  

By popular demand, two new reward tiers have been added:

And...now announcing STRETCH GOALS!

Several amazing artists have contributed their talents by donating sketch cover commissions to be randomly distributed via the BLINDSKETCH rewards tiers.  Artists contributing to this campaign include:

 THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!

With your help, we can help shine a brighter spotlight on some amazing new titles each and every month, while also adding a new level excitement for readers and collectors alike!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge with our business model stems from the MOQ (minimum order quantity) required by most publishers in order to produce exclusive variant covers. To this end, the main objective of the Kickstarter campaign is to raise enough capital to help fund our first few months of exclusive variant covers. We have projects that have been greenlit by major publishers, with top-tier talent attached and our first few covers already in the can. The website has been launched, and we have all of our ducks in a row. By funding our campaign, you are helping us to hit the ground running, and ensuring that Blindbox has the best possible chance at long-term success.
