Fantom Comics Launches InkBot: A Monthly Indie Comics Subscription Box

Washington, DC’s Fantom Comics has launched a new comic subscription box focused on indie comics, InkBot! InkBot is a monthly subscription service that delivers small press and self-published comics directly to your door. The Fantom Comics staff scout out the best small press comics they can find, package them up, and ship them off to subscribers each month so you don’t have to spend your money and time hunting for them.

The store is hoping to get 500 subscribers to get the “kind of low printing costs that will make this work.” Once that number is reached, they’ll move forward and to make it happen, they’re offering a big discount through Indiegogo.

The box will provide the type of comics usually not found in comic shops and will give about 50 small press creators each year the exposure in front of the box’s subscribers. The box also will provide small press creators and helps the Fantom staff through a profit-sharing venture.

We’ve already backed it ourselves, so expect an unboxing video when we get the first one in our hands.
