We break down all the geek subscription boxes for you
Subscription boxes. You can get them for pretty much anything nowadays from pet boxes to makeup boxes, herb gardens, vegan snacks, monthly shave clubs, even apocalypse prep boxes. It’s like a wine of the month club for people who are sick of wine of the month clubs.
Now you can get your geek on every month with some pretty amazing fandom-related subscription boxes that are popping up across the internet. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites to give you the breakdown on what you’ll get each month.

In addition, their new subscription service VillainCrate is coming soon with everything you’ll need to start to take over the world.*
