Kickstart: Themed Comic Boxes

It blows my mind that boxes like this haven't been out on the market for years. If you like the idea, support the "Boxes in Action" kickstarter and help get it off the ground.

Boxes in Action is a new company that has one goal in mind.  That goal is to provide collectors with an alternative to how they store their comics, and collectables.  Don't collect comics or toys?  How about how you store your Xbox or Playstation games?  How about your dvd's or those really cool expensive headphones you got for Christmas?


   This is one of those concepts that really should have been on the market years ago, though I suppose this is how it needs to come about.  A smaller company licensing the characters and putting out the product and not something the bigger corporations would care enough to dive into.  Once they get a full range of these designs covering all the major comic book properties would make a pretty nice setup instead of the wall of white boxes.

   The company hopes to put out high quality boxes and their starting focus will be on  Iron Man and Avengers/Captain America boxes - makes sense given the movies due out soon.  Donations of various levels will get you the usual 'Thank you' and varying degrees of product.  Check out the kickstarter and pledge your support if you like the idea.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
