Comic Crate FAQ
Comic Crate is a monthly comic book subscription box.
We personally select six full-size comic books each month that fit the rating you select—All Ages, Teen, or Teen+, and ship them right to your door.
All comic books that we provide adhere to the current, industry-standard comic book rating system.
An All Ages Comic Crate contains comics that are labeled ALL AGES—these comics are appropriate for all ages.
A Teen Rated Comic Crate contains comics labeled TEEN—these comics are appropriate for most readers, but parents are advised that they might want to read before or with younger children.
A Teen+ Rated Comic Crate contains comics labeled TEEN+ —these comics are appropriate for older teens and adults only.

Proficient Readers can enjoy the art and text, while learning how the comic medium models concise language.
Comic Book Lovers of all ages and reading levels can appreciate and enjoy the enticing and engaging stories in today’s comic books.

We personally build each Comic Crate, and although there may be one or two repeats between Comic Crates (they may both have an X-Men comic, for example), the chances of them being exactly the same are very small.
Your Comic Crate is a surprise each month! If you want to choose specific comics to receive each month, contact us and ask about a Custom Comic Crate.
We personally select the comic books that go into your Comic Crate each month, but we understand that everyone’s tastes are different. We hope that you’ll share or trade comics with your friends, and hopefully, next month’s Comic Crate will include something you love!
