ShortBox is a quarterly, independent comics box, containing a carefully curated selection of comics and art goodness from a range of international contemporary cartoonists and artists. 

Created and curated by Zainab Akhtar, ShortBox was  borne from our love of receiving bookish post- namely, the excitement of comics mail. However, despite there being a variety of comic 'boxes' and subscriptions available, none featured the type of work we'd like to see: the self-published, small press and independent comics that continue to invigorate the medium and keep us passionately invested. What we wanted was a quarterly comics box heavy on the comics (no T-shirts, key-rings, or Funko Pops) that allowed the customer to see exactly what they were getting for their money, and discover fresh and  with the option to also include one or two special items from exciting artists both within and beyond the field.

Orders ship weekly every Wednesday (unless otherwise stated). All UK orders are posted via Royal Mail first class post. International orders can take anything between 7 days to 8 weeks to arrive.
