Cover Price $19.99 – The Avengers have become super popular in the movie theaters. I feel the reason is because of all the Marvel Comics writers and artists have done such an incredible job working on titles, much like this one.

Savage – Valiant Comics – $9.99 cover price. The artwork is in the Valiant style, and the colors by Brain Rebar and Andrew Dalhouse are excellent. The violence is also pretty savage as the title suggests.
Fifteen years ago, the world’s most famous soccer star and his former supermodel wife –pregnant with their unborn child – disappeared without a trace. The world believes they are dead… But, in reality, their private jet crash-landed on a mysterious, unknown island ruled by prehistoric creatures from another time…
This is the story of how they lost their humanity.
Acclaimed writer B. Clay Moore (Aloha, Hawaiian Dick), and explosive artists Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN) present a relentless epic of survival in a cold-blooded land ruled by instinct alone in the must-read debut of Valiant’s next major hero!
Collecting SAVAGE #1–4.
Wars in Toyland – ONI Press – Cover Price $19.99. I like when I see books of different sizes. It’s also a hardcover so it looks good on the shelf of coffee table.
Toyland was once a place of wonder and beauty, at least until the teddy dictator Roxbury took over. After Matthew’s brother and playmate, Alex, disappears, Matthew finds himself carried into Toyland by his own loyal toy soldiers. Matthew soon learns that Alex has been here, too, held captive by Roxbury. Leading an attack on the teddy bear’s fortress, Matthew never considers that his brother might be beyond saving.
Comic Bento is such an awesome value! All four of these books were packaged well together and arrived in spectacular condition. As stated earlier, there is a theme but there’s also a ton of variety, and the theming of this box is pretty unique amongst comic subscriptions. The curator’s notes really bring the theme together, and that made this box even more awesome!
