Like many people, we here at ShortBox love the excitement and anticipation of getting a package in the post -and when that package contains comics, it's happiness squared.
Despite there being a variety of 'boxes' and subscriptions available, none featured the comics that would get me interested enough to sign up: the self-published, small press and independent comics that continue to invigorate the medium and keep readers passionately invested.
What ShortBox is bringing together is a quarterly comics box heavy on the comics (no T-shirts, key-rings, Funko Pops), that allows the customer to see exactly what they are getting for their money.
Intrinsically, ShortBox is an extension of Comics & Cola's sensibilities in bringing together excellent and interesting comics from around the world. It feels like a natural extension to go from spotlighting and recommending that work, to putting it directly into people's hands. Simply put, ShortBox is a carefully curated selection of comics and art goodness from a range of international contemporary cartoonists and artists.
