Gift Ideas Sure to Please the Comic Book Fans in Your Life

2018 was a HUGE year for comic book fans. From the universally loved Blank Panther (and his even more universally loved sister, Shuri) to a hunky Aquaman to LOSING HALF OF ALL LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE TO THANOS, there was a lot going on.

We here at the Guide are really into comics, so we had a blast combing through all the interwebz had to offer and compiling this list of excellent gifts for the comic book fans in your life!

01

A Lamp That Will Perk Up Your Room in a Snap… oh wait...

A Lamp That Will Perk Up Your Room in a Snap… oh wait...

This sweet lamp, which is fashioned to look exactly like Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet, doesn't have the ability to blink out half of all life in the Universe in a single snap, but it will add a little something extra to your desk. That little something extra might be the implication that people shouldn't mess with you, but it's definitely something extra.

02

There's Something Fishy About This Guy...

There's Something Fishy About This Guy...

Is it just us or does the new Aquaman movie look BONKERS? This very strange (and wonderful) shark/Aquaman toy combo just furthers our suspicions.

03

A Perfect Piece of Outerwear

Show your loyalty to the true king of Wakanda with this awesome faux leather zip-up hoodie sporting the Black Panther's logo on the front and back.

A Book For Comic Know-it-alls

A Book For Comic Know-it-alls

Anyone who wants to brush up on the DC Universe knowledge, or who just wants to get a better idea of who all these characters are, will definitely enjoy this encyclopedia.

It was also recently updated to include the New 52 and Rebirth storylines, making it the "definitive and indispensable" guide for comic enthusiasts.  

05

A Delightful Sweater

A Delightful Sweater

It may not come with a mask to hide hideous scarring, but Wade Wilson's irreverent humor translates extremely well to the language of ugly Christmas sweaters.

We think the skeletons are an especially nice touch.

06

A Doll for Villainesses in Training

A Doll for Villainesses in Training

Ok, per DC's Super Hero Girls series, Poison Ivy isn't a villainess, but she is learning how to control plants and coming into her own as a brilliant scientist. She truly is a fantastic role model for young ladies and botanists alike.

07

A Bedtime Story

A Bedtime Story

Have little ones not quite old enough for the Black Panther movie? Introduce them to Wakanda, the Black Panther, Shuri, and Okoye with this delightful Little Golden Book.

08

An Adorable Version Of The Caped Crusader

A Hammer With a Surprise Inside

A Hammer With a Surprise Inside

The mighty hammer Mjolnir, forged in the heart of a dying star, now has a new purpose—holder of many useful tools. This tool set has 44 tools stashed inside, including a hammer (of course), tape measure, level, screwdriver, wrench, ratcheting wrench, and utility knife.

10

A Tool For Nights Spent Fighting Crime

A Tool For Nights Spent Fighting Crime

Well, we don't recommend you go out and fight crime with this Batman Bat Folding Tactical Knife, but it is great to have around when you need to open that Amazon box that came in the mail or you have a thread hanging off of your shirt. 

Reviewers say that the knives themselves are sharp very useful in day-to-day situations that require a pocket knife. Not to mention that they look really cool too!

11

Sticky Notes For Wonderous Reminders

Sticky Notes For Wonderous Reminders

Nothing is more helpful than a strategically placed sticky note when you need to remember to do that one annoying thing that you keep forgetting about. 

Actually, there is something a little more helpful: Sticky notes that showcase Wonder Woman! There's even one that shows her riding the Invisible Jet!

12

A Poster That’s a Little Different

A Poster That’s a Little Different

There are so many cool posters out there now for superheros, but we love this one for two reasons. 

First, it's the classic Thor design from when the character was introduced. Second, it's made of tin, which just makes it seem more special than a regular poster.

13

An Ornament That Proves We Are All Groot

An Ornament That Proves We Are All Groot

Look at his little face! 

He looks like he's about to have so much fun jumping around the branches of a Christmas tree.

14

A Very Useful Batman Symbol

A Very Useful Batman Symbol

There’s a reason those stick-on phone holders are all the rage—they actually work!

There is nothing as awesome as a simple product that prevents you from dropping your phone every five seconds. Now if you want to go for form as well as function, this Batman phone gives you a firm grasp on your phone and looks pretty sweet too.

15

A Weapon That Illuminates, Rather Than Destroys

A Weapon That Illuminates, Rather Than Destroys

Night lights can be a little lame. Nightlights shaped like Thor's Hammer are definitely not lame.

16

Slap this sticker on your car to show that you're a fierce Amazonian warrior princess who is not to be trifled with. 

That should stop the people around you from driving erratically.

Essential Reading For Batman Fans

Essential Reading For Batman Fans

Frank Miller's Batman comics are some of the most highly regarded in the the character's nearly 80 years in existence. 

And, it's definitely worth noting that this gritty backstory was written way before gritty backstories were cool.
