This Looks Cool- Uncle Envelope Kristin Lindner has created Uncle Envelope, a subscription mailing service for kids that are too old for Highlights and too smart and cool for tween magazines. The idea is that your favorite non-creepy uncle, Uncle Envelope, travels the world looking for cool and interesting things to send you. Uncle Envelope will inlcude comics, games, papercraft projects by talented artists from all over, including Corinne Mucha, Alec Longstreth, Joshua Ray Stephens (of the astonishing "Moth or the Flame"), and Sarah Becan. A year's worth of Uncle Envelope mailings is only $36, which makes it a pretty affordable and unique gift for your favorite smart and cool kids.

Artists that are interested in participating can submit their work here.

Hope everyone is having a good holiday season. I came home from DC to many mini-comics in the mailbox. Time to get back to work!

You're right. This looks cool.
so I might be older than the supposed demographic for Uncle Envelope (and yet, not too old that it would seem creepy if I did sign up), but this looks pretty sweet. I was looking at the website, and you get a cool gift every month, plus an extra for your birthday. As a fan of birthdays in general, I'm sold.

This is the perfect replacement for my recently expired Nickelodeon Magazine subscription. (I got it for the comics).
