Time to become the Hero with our DC Comics subscription box here at Pages N’ Pixels. As a part of the “Hero” range, this Box is designed around readers of comic books and graphic novels all from the DC Universe.
Let’s be honest, knowing and tracking what new comics coming up can take up time and valuable brain space! Then, you have to look at the different stories and pick something… but what do you go for? Many people will always go for the old favourites!
But what new stories are out there? Which new characters could you miss out on? You might never know the adventures in the DC Comics universe that you would fall in love with!
Here at PnP, we want to help you to Start Your Next Adventure. Let us track the new releases and scour the boxes for classic stories. We’ll flick through those long boxes and choose awesome adventures for you. Our team of PnP Legends love nothing more than finding amazing stories & characters you’re going to obsess over!
All you need to do is join the legends with this DC Comics Monthly Hero Box. No tracking of new releases. No deciding what to take a risk on. And definitely not getting the same old stories over and over… No. Here you get an ongoing series each month alongside our selection of amazing comics. Plus, the PnP love it guarantee will make sure the series you get is what you want to read!
Let us find the best DC Comics stories for you every month, and send you some fun alongside them. Everything comes directly from the Legends at our friendly, independent comic book shop in Halifax, UK (come see us in The Piece Hall if you can!).

Keep and eye on the Instagram or TikTok for the latest video examples and what's included!
What’s in the PnP “Hero”: DC Comics Subscription Box?
Start Your Next Adventure... comic book fans!
Our Hero boxes, including DC Comics, Marvel, Indies and more all come with epic reads, awesome gear and packed with fun along with incredible value! All from our friendly, independent comic book shop in Halifax, UK.
New & Classic Comics
Both new releases and our best classics selected for you by our team of Legends.
New Graphic Novel
Get a recently released full graphic novel to enjoy a full new adventure.
Comic Themed Gear
You get epic gear from T-Shirts to Funko Pop's or even something unique from new creators.
There's plenty to enjoy in the PnP Hero Box from mugs to pins, badges even coffee & treats!
This DC Box, and all our Hero Boxes, are designed for comic lovers who love reading more than collecting. In the DC Comics Box, you will get more comics and a guaranteed graphic novel. Things that are not always included in the DC Comics Adventurer Box are also available online! However, you get some of the awesome gear and fun items in the standard version. Not everything from the Adventurer Box, but a nice selection of it!
Oh, you want it all? Well, you can have it! Go for the ULTIMATE Hero version, detailed down the page to see how you can combine the Hero and Adventurer boxes into one ultimate package. (Think of Mother Boxes but coming with fun comics and T-shirts… rather than destruction and summoning evil overlords!).
But first, check out what you get here with the Hero Version…
The standard Hero Box option includes each month:
- New Comic Book series! Get a brand new comic at issue #1 and read every one in the series as you go. Oh, and if you are not enjoying that series, you can let us know and we'll swap you to something else in the following box!
- PnP Choice comic books! Chosen from collectors and based around the theme of the month. Here we'll add in some recent releases, cool classics, even some retro comics that we have scoured the long boxes for.
- A brand-new graphic novel! Either as it releases or one chosen by the PnP Legends that fits the theme of the month perfectly.
- Awesome On-Theme Gear! Coming right from the Adventure Box equivalent, including great merch like Funko Pops! Tubbz cosplaying Ducks or T-Shirts and more
- Fun stuff! We'll also include some things we think you'll like including treats, pins, badges and even PnP Exclusive Items.
Launch Edition Legends Exclusives!!
Our boxes launch October 2022, be a Launch Edition Legend and get bonus items...
Not only is this an awesome selection… It’s great value too. Each month will include a total of £50 (approx) retail price for only £35! To get yours, get signed up here or find out more options, including the Ultimate Hero Version further down the page. But first…
The PnP Love it Guarantee
We are already letting you guys choose your favourite comic genre so we know you should love our selection of ongoing series. Each month getting another new issue from an ongoing series should usually hit the spot…
But if it doesn’t, we have got you! There’s no need to suffer for the next 4, 5 or even 6 months with a story you are not getting into.
Let us know and we’ll move you on to something else, no worries!
What happens if you don’t love it?
All you do is message us via the PnP social media multiverse or via email after getting issue #1 of the series and before you get your box containing issue #2. You let us know you are not loving it and we will swap you onto another series with no problem. We’ll even try and match you to the best options as we do so.
Then, next month you will get issue #1 and #2 of the series you selected instead. It’s that easy. Just make sure you let us know before your next box is ready.
A whole universe of DC Comics characters and stories
Let’s just say, when it comes to choosing content for the comic boxes, we of course love the big players of DC. Batman and Superman are iconic and do feature in this box as they rightly should. It’s not for us here at PnP to suggest they are not amazing…
What we will also say is: DC Comics has a whole universe of amazing characters beyond them, which includes: The Flash, Black Adam, The Joker and Harley Quinn. Plus, Green Arrow, Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman, The Watchmen, The Sandman… phew… out of figurative breath already!
Do you see what we’re saying? This is a DC comics monthly hero box from us comic lovers at Pages N Pixels direct to you DC Comics fans at home!
We’re out to celebrate all of the DC Universe with this box, so while icons will feature, this is more than a Batman or Superman box. This will bring you some special stories, new characters and adventures from an outstanding universe of creativity.
14+ Age rating Explained
DC Comics are age rated for Teens or even Teen plus. But what does that mean in the UK? Well, there are likely to be some darker themes in DC comics than others. They may involve some more violence and adult conversations/events than in other series.
We may include some on the Teen+ in the monthly box. While it’s not going to be anything that’s just for Adult audiences like some independent comics out there. Parental discretion is advised though if purchasing for someone under the age of 14. Particularly around violence in this case.
What is in the PnP “Ultimate Hero”: DC Comics Loot Box?
Start Your ULTIMATE Adventure... comic book fans!
GO ULTIMATE with our Hero boxes for DC Comics, Marvel, Indies and more. These come with everything from the Hero and Adventurer Boxes for the ULTIMATE monthly box from PNP!
Rather than one or the other, upgrade that Hero box to ULTIMATE and get a collectible every month plus...
A Guaranteed T-Shirt
Yes! Another dead-cert for upgrading: Get a new awesome Tee every month, including the latest release designs.
Exclusive Pins, badges & Gifts
Our Adventurer Boxes special pins, gifts, glasses, badges or other amazing items added into your hero box.
Full Hero Box Content & More
Of course, your ULTIMATE box comes with everything already included in your Hero Box and also includes randomly allocated rewards.
Ok, now we’re getting (why so…) serious! The best thing to explain this is a quick look at our Adventurer Boxes which normally cost £39 per month, but by going ultimate you save money…
The standard Hero Box is designed around people who love READING DC Comics. Whereas, the DC Comics Adventurer Box is all about COLLECTING and getting cool merch. We include some of this in the Hero Box for you as described above.
But… go with this option and UNITE the HERO and the ADVENTURER into the ULTIMATE Box.
The Ultimate Box option includes each month:
- Guaranteed T-Shirt! Rather than a rotation of which item you get from the adventurer box, with Ultimate you'll always get an awesome tee!
- Guaranteed Collectible! Yes, you'll even get a collectable figure either from our friends at Funko, Numskull and Kenner or something equally epic from another partner of ours.
- Pins, badges and exclusives! We bring you all kinds of cool items in PnP, so expect those to come along including pins or badges, even mugs and plush toys could arrive.
- Everything in the Hero Box as above!
Great deal, right? Let’s do this! Choose your options and get signed up, or find out more on our ongoing Themes and Focus monthly content…
DC Comics Subscription / Loot Box: Ongoing Themes and Monthly Focus
We don’t want to spoil the surprise of what’s coming in the box, but we do want you to have a few clues! This is why our boxes all start with a Theme which will run for 3 months.
During the Theme we’ll have months focused on different aspects, characters or worlds to make things interesting. To give you an idea, the current theme and ongoing Focus are listed below, you can also find the latest over on our Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and Twitter:
Current Theme: Origin Stories
Welcome to the launch theme and our launch PNP Hero and Adventurer Boxes! Take a look at the information for the theme for launch in March, then April and May:
Origin Stories - Comic Book Fans Edition!
There's nothing like the start of something special. That's what's happening at Pages N' Pixels right now as our website is all shiny and new like fresh beskar armour. Or a newly crafted Batarang or even something from the realm of Asgard...
Origin stories are special to comic books and special to us, this is our focus for the first 3 monthly boxes. Each month we'll be focusing on three different types of characters:
- March: Heroes - Of course, we can't call them Hero or Adventurer boxes without celebrating the good guys! Here we celebrate the protagonists, heroes and even groups of heroes fighting for what's right!
- April: Anti-Heroes - So, you can't have a great hero without an equally great, if not even better, villain! Celebrate the nasty, deranged or completely insane bad guys.
- February: Anti-Heroes - It's not easy to be good, and not every hero wants to be good all the time! Sometimes you need someone to be almost as bad as the villain to save the day!
Keep an eye on the PNP Social Media Multiverse (⬅️this page has all our social media in one place so you can follow us super easy!) to see more on this season's theme and let us know what you're looking forward to most.
What's next? Keep your eye on our announcements of upcoming PNP Box Themes!
Now, time to see how you can sign up and pay for your boxes. While this is super easy month-to-month, you can take advantage of subscribing every 3 or 6 months and saving on each box as a result…
Pay Upfront and Save or Pay Monthly
We want to make things as easy as possible, but for us it's super helpful if you want to pay for more boxes up-front since we can order things in larger quantities sooner!
This means we pass the savings back to you! You can get a saving of (slightly more than...) a free box a year.
- Pay every 6 months - Get the saving equivalent to one free box a year (it's actually a bit more than that!) by paying for 6 boxes upfront.
- Pay every 3 months - Choose this one and save (over) half a box in costs per year by paying 3 boxes upfront.
- Month-to-month payments - Want to take it one box at a time? Go for this option and keep it simple, you can always change this anytime and pay for more in one go later.
How will I be charged and when will my box arrive?
To make matters easier all around, we will take your payment on the 1st of the month on your payment month, how often will depend on your frequency selected on the page.
Orders will be looked at by PNP Legends and we'll organise your content throughout the month from the best options we can get into stock!
Boxes will be prepared between the 21st and 24th of the month, dispatched to arrive a few working days later.
Why? Firstly, this was best for general payday management based on feedback from our survey. It also allows us just over half a month for new people to sign up and enjoy the content without waiting even longer since they will all go out at the same time.
Being a small, independent comic book shop it also helps us organise everything for you and give you that personal touch! If you want to swap to a different comic series you can request a swap. And if we want to offer you some additional choices you can get them.
You can even swap your box to another option and pay the difference!
So, what are you waiting for, hero? Get going with your DC Comics Subscription Box by choosing the options and payment frequency. Head to choose the options here:
