The Most Bizarre Piece of Mail Ever Received at CBR (NSFW)

Here at the Comic Book Resources global headquarters in Los Angeles, California, we get a lot of mail.

A lot.

Most of it is comp comics. Some good, lots of bad, mostly looking for reviews or feedback of some sort. We get some fan letters occasionally, which is always quaint in this very digital world. We get some fun promotional items, like the recently arrived The Walking Dead Press Kit. Video games, a CD or vinyl disc here or there (yeah, our “Marvel Vs. Capcom 2” vinyl is prominently displayed in the office, as is the “Watchmen” vinyl). We get lots of mail.

Occasionally, we get some letters of a more unexpected variety. Some are from inmates, but those are usually very nice, asking for details on how they can subscribe to a particular comic. One guy asked if we could write back with suggestions on how to open a comics shop once he got out of prison. I was tempted to write back, “Don’t – crime pays better than comics,” but that’s certainly not helpful.

I’ve had letters written by young adults basically asking us to do the research for some school assignment for them, Those always crack me up.

Sometimes we get odd, generic letters meant for Marvel or Top Cow or some other publisher. Not sure what that’s about.

The other day I was going through a pile of papers in my home office and came upon a piece of mail I got a while back, maybe three or four years ago, that I couldn’t in good conscience throw away. It’s easily the most disturbing and unique piece of mail we’ve ever received here at CBR. I’m really glad I rediscovered this and am able to share this with you because, well, it’s just not something one can live with alone. It must be shared. And note, this is likely Not Safe For Work for most of you.

I really think the art speaks for itself, don’t you? This is going in a frame and will be hung on our office walls shortly.

Well, we know what kind of mail’s gonna be flooding your inbox for the next couple weeks.

“X-Women” is a good start.

You have to admit that’s pretty original.
