Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) (“Wizard World”) today announced a complete sellout of the first edition of ComicConBox™, a premium monthly box service business that launched last week. As of next month, a limited premium subscription will be offered to fans. First edition boxes are scheduled to ship within the next one-to-two weeks.
Luckily for fans, Wizard World also announced today that ComicConBox will shortly be offering a three-month subscription that brings an exclusive Marvel Secret Wars #1 sketch variant comic inside its next ComicConBox.
“The great immediate success of ComicConBox shows that the appetite for pop culture continues to grow exponentially,” said John Macaluso, Wizard World CEO. “We believe that Wizard World’s intimate relationships with key players, including artists, celebrities and vendors, are unparalleled in the box business and we believe that we can instantly impact the industry.”
