I wasn't along for the ride when BOX 13 was doing damage as a digital comics serialized on the "Comics by comiXology" iPhone app. But, I'll tell ya, BOX 13 isn't so shabby, either, as a collected trade paperback published by Red 5 Comics. It collects chapters #1-13, each chapter adding up to 7 pages of story content. Writer David Gallaher and artist Steve Ellis channel bits from THE MATRIX, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, and THE BOURNE IDENTITY to give us a noirish, reality-warping read.

Being an old school sort of guy, I think it's cool that the creative team was inspired by a 1947 syndicated radio series, also called BOX 13. In the radio broadcast, the main character Dan Holiday (voiced by actor Alan Ladd) was a writer who sought ideas for his stories by running a classified ad in the newspaper, asking suggestions from the readers. His ad read: "Adventure wanted, will go anywhere, do anything - write Box 13, Star-Times." It was a neat gimmick. But Gallaher and Ellis chose to go another route.

In this modern incarnation, Dan Holiday is still a writer, an investigative one, as well as the author of the popular "Jake Maxwell: Super Secret Agent" thrillers. Dan's latest effort had him poking into the dark nooks and crannies of something called the MKULTRA Project. As our story opens, Dan Holiday has just finished a slide show and has sat down for a book signing. He suddenly notices a mysterious box on his table. It comes with an innocuous note: "To Dan... Love, Suzie." Dan opens the box, which is like Alice strolling thru the looking glass. Things promptly get strange and nightmarish for Dan.

BOX 13 reads rapidly. Partly because the pace really moves, partly because the writer deals in brevity.

This is by far one of the awesome and most fun books I have ever just bought on a whim! I had never heard of it before but saw an add for it in the TPB for neoxoic and thought it looked cool so I ordered it! One of the smartest things I have ever done! This book blends the line between crime Noir and Conspiracy thriller in a way that keeps you turning pages wanting more!The art is just amazing really moody and fits the story perfect! It ends wide open for more installments which i hope we will get I could and would read this title monthly! books as awesome and fun as this should not be missed READ THIS BOOK YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!

I got this book for my 13th birthday. It is a lot of fun and an enjoyable read. It feels haunting and spooky, but really grabbed my attention. It has some adult themes, but I liked it. It really moved. The art was spectacular with a great use of red.

I read this free on Comixology and enjoyed it so much that when I heard it was going to be available to purchase I ordered it. Yes, I liked it that much. The artwork is amazing and the story is full of thrills and mystery. I still don't fully understand what's in those boxes though.
