Let’s see what came in the February 2017 Sci-Fan Block.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer Shirt: This shirt brings back memories of the days when the movie came out and the TV series. I really never watched it but I’m sure there are a lot of people out there that were fans and would love this shirt.
Supernatural Belt: This belt is not one I would particularly wear but, then again, I don’t wear belt very often. Honestly, this is more of a collectible than actual apparel item to me. The buckle is not the best and I just don’t see people wearing this very much. This is not to take away from Supernatural or Sci-Fan Block. It’s just not my style.
FunEdibles Slimer Lime Gelatin Treat: This Ghostbusters – inspired Gelatin treat was also included in the Sci-Fan Block. Subscribers either got this or the Stay Puft Man made out of marshmallow. Pretty cool, huh?
Hellboy: The Companion: Barnes and Noble offer the following summary of this book:
Written by Steve Weiner (The Will Eisner Companion) and Jason Hall (Beware the Creeper, Trigger, Detective Comics) and densely illustrated with classic images from the comics as well as a handful of new drawings from Mignola, this volume offers thorough documentation of the Hellboy universe, compiling the many complex pieces that make up the life of the World’s Greatest Paranormal Investigator into an easily understandable format. From Abe Sapien to the secret origin of the world, this complete compendium is every hardcore Hellboy fan’s key to the mind of Mike Mignola, and the ultimate introduction for anyone looking to begin their journey in the weird and wondrous world he has created.
That’s it for the February 2017 Sci-Fan Block. Personally, this box did not completely excite me. It is not because the products weren’t nice quality. It is a simple personal preference. I’m not a huge Science and Fantasy follower. But if you are, this is a great box to get each month.
