27 Gift Ideas Sure to Please the Comic Book Superhero Fans in Your Life
It has never been a better time to be a fan of comic books. The movies, the tv shows, the merchandise—there’s always something new and exciting to grab your attention. In this era of comic book plenty, it can be easy to get lost in all of the great books, clothes, and toys out there.
Luckily, we here at The Guide are also huge comic fans, and we’ve combed through the interwebz to find the best of the best as we celebrate the holiday season and the new Justice League movie!
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.
A Statue Depicting The Battle To End All Battles
Modeled after the art from the epic Frank Miller saga, The Dark Knight Returns, this cold-cast porcelain statue depicts the Batman and Superman locked in battle.
While this scene was duplicated in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, we think it was done best in its original, comic form.
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.
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!
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!
Caped Crusader Tape For Fixing Anything And Everything
We’re just gonna say it: Duct tape is one of the most useful tools in any tool box (take that, hammers!).
Even better, when that duct tape is emblazoned with the Batman logo. Now anything you fix with duct tape will also be fashionable!
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.
And it’s just subtle enough to wear to a work holiday party.
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.
Some Classic Superman Comics
This hardbound volume of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s quintessential Superman story, showing the human side of the Son of Krypton.
This story is great for both longtime Superman fans and newcomers to the DC Universe.
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.
