While there may be a few stores in South Africa dedicated to comic books and related merchandising, they aren’t as widespread and accessible to the many fans around the country. Local online sales has seen an increase in recent times, and yet the market is still somewhat void of such collectables. Nerd Block is a site that offers a unique package featuring geek apparel and merchandise on a monthly basis for a subscription fee. Although the site isn’t locally based, it still provides a deal worth considering.
WHAT IS NERD BLOCK

HOW MUCH IS NERD BLOCK?
Nerd Block is $19.99 a month, plus shipping. You may start and stop your Nerd Block subscription anytime you like, meaning there’s no commitment!
HOW WILL I BE CHARGED MONTHLY FOR NERD BLOCK?
Initially you will be charged for your first Block at the time you register for your subscription. From there you will be billed at the beginning of every month for that month’s subscription. For example, if you subscribe on January 10th, that payment will be applied to February’s Block (assuming the closing date for January was the 8th). Your next billing will occur on March 1st and would pertain to March’s Block. If you subscribe prior to the closing date for that month’s Block (assuming you subscribe on January 7th or prior and the closing date is the 8th) you will be billed immediately for January’s Block and your next payment will occur February 1st, for February’s Block. The closing date can be found on the homepage (hint: it’s the countdown timer).
WHEN IS NERD BLOCK MAILED TO ME?
Nerd Blocks are sent out approximately the 15th of every month, give or take a day. Once your Nerd Block is shipped, you’ll receive an email notifying you of your tracking information!
At present, the team at Nerd Block does not offer shipping to South Africa, but with sufficient local interest, are willing to consider adding it to their list of destinations. Shipping, however, is an estimated $25, to be added to the $19.99 subscription fee. If you’re interested in this offer, simply vote below by stating Yay or Nay, and adding your comment.
