After a smallish June, Marvel returns with a big Secret War theme.
Review by Matt CummingsThe subscription box war has seen Marvel enter the fray with it Collector Corps boxes, which resulted in a fabulous and memorable April, which was followed up by a somewhat disappointing June. While not a total failure like Fox's The Fantastic Four, it did show just how close Marvel had cozied-up with Funko Pop; whether that bothers you probably depends on a number of factors, including the addition of Pop! figures in every box. And while Ant-Man the movie has grown on me, I still can't say the same about that month's Collector Corp. So it's very satisfying to announce that August's box - SECRET WAR - is back with everything we loved about April, giving fans exactly what they want: quality exclusives, including a shirt. The Promise April, May, and June boxes, MCC looks to take the lead - possibly for good - in the subscription box war. Discuss this review with fellow SJF fans on Facebook.
