IMG_20151030_114139Landfall Freight Co. is a comic book & graphic novel subscription box started by sisters Michelle & Tianna to give more representation to females in comics. They also wanted to make female-friendly books more accessible to readers by hand-picking the contents of each box. This month’s box has the well-timed theme of “Heart of Darkness”.

The box is long but flat and features unique art-work on the inside and out. One of the nicest looking sub boxes I’ve seen in awhile.

Kelly Thompson & Meredith McClaren

After having her heart broken, Emma makes a terrible mistake and wishes for her heart to no longer exist. To regain her heart she must find all seven pieces of it. It’s like a darker Scott Pilgrim and the artwork is fantastic.

Claire Gibson, Sloane Leong, Marian Churchland

The first issue of From Under Mountains (new from Image) features a brand new story set in Brandon Graham’s 8house Universe (Kiem, Arclight & Mirror). While this Fantasy story takes place in that world, it’s not a prerequisite to read it before picking up From Under Mountains. From Under Mountains revolves around a thief, a lord’s daughter and a witch all from Karsgate. It’ll be interesting to see by the end of the series how the different characters continue to intersect to make the larger overall story.

IMG_20151030_120604This month’s Landfall Freight Co. box included a full-sized brand new graphic novel, brand new Image Comic and an imported mini-trade for a reasonable price while sticking close to it’s theme. You can tell there’s a lot of thought put into the selection process of what’s included, even down to the bonuses like the heart tote bag, the temporary tattoos and the craft project.

This female-friendly box is a good choice for anyone that wants to read some quality comics and graphic novels (whether they are female or not).
