1. For the BATMAN fan who has it all: DARK KNIGHT: THE MASTER RACE

Frank Miller’s long-awaited sequel to DARK KNIGHT RETURNS is finally available in graphic novel, and this massive tome of killer reading, featuring all 9 issues of the maxi-series is THE definitive gift for the BATMAN fan in your life.

In a world gone awry, left in the aftermath of the toppling of Lex Luthor and the apparent death of Batman himself, who will save Gotham City and the rest of the planet against the mysterious Master Race?

The epic follow-up to what is easily the most important BATMAN graphic novel of all-time, MASTER RACE truly does the legacy of DARK KNIGHT RETURNS justice!

3. For the comic fan who’s way up to date on their reading: GOD COUNTRY

One of the best IMAGE mini-series of the last couple years has gotta be GOD COUNTRY, which blends the hard-hitting real world drama of series like SOUTHERN BASTARDS with the otherworldly fantasy of stories like Neil Gaiman’s AMERICAN GODS.

In GOD COUNTRY, readers meet Emmett Quinlan, an old widower rattled by dementia. Emmett isn’t just a problem for his children-his violent outbursts are more than the local cops can handle. When a tornado levels his home-as well as the surrounding West Texas town-a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage.

An enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him more than a sound mind and body, however. He’s now the only man who can face these otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn down to the Lone Star State…


4. For the Young Rebel in Your House: GOOD NIGHT STORIES FOR REBEL GIRLS

Wanna show the next generation all about some of the most extraordinary women who’ve ever lived? Good Night Stories for REBEL GIRLS delivers 100 tales of extraordinary women from the past and the present, ranging from Serena Williams to Cleopatra to Aubrey Hepburn and beyond. A must-read, super-fun for boys and girls alike to show them just how many incredible ladies have changed the world as we know it.


5. For THE WALKING DEAD fan in the house: NEGAN Deluxe Action Figure

6. For the THOR fan who can’t stop raving about RAGNAROK: THOR: RAGNAROKS TPB

There’s a ton of different options for the THOR fan in your life, but the best one to hook them up with this holiday season after seeing RAGNAROK is the graphic novel that inspired the recent film: THOR RAGNAROKS.

In a tale from Asgard’s glory days, Thor stands beside his brothers-in-arms when the Warriors Three stand trial for murder – and ties himself to their fate!

Years later, the end is nigh for the gods – and only Thor, Captain America and Iron Man can stave off Ragnarok, the end of all things!

But will the Odinson be Asgard’s savior, or the architect of its downfall?

And will noble alien warrior Beta Ray Bill escape the end of one world only to face his own when he encounters a creature who turns his enemies to dust to fuel the stars? Can he save his people from cosmic immolation?


7. For the DC Comics fan who just can’t stop raving about DOOMSDAY CLOCK: BATMAN / FLASH: THE BUTTON HC

We know there’s a ton of you who’re probably jazzed on the new WATCHMEN follow-up DOOMSDAY CLOCK, and probably have at least a few people in your life who you either want to share this awesomeness with OR who are already hooked on it.

Well, you can show them where it all began with the DC Comics Rebirth THE BUTTON hardcover, which collects the explosive storyline from BATMAN #21-22 and THE FLASH #21-22 is collected in a new Deluxe Edition hardcover! The Dark Knight and the Fastest Man Alive, the two greatest detectives on any world, unite to explore the mystery behind a certain blood-stained smiley button embedded in the Batcave wall.

What starts as a simple investigation turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party – and it’s not who anyone suspects! It’s a mystery woven through time, and the ticking clock starts here!

As the British Library unveils a very special new exhibition in the UK, Harry Potter: A History of Magic, readers everywhere are invited on an enchanting journey through the Hogwarts curriculum, from Care of Magical Creatures and Herbology to Defense Against the Dark Arts, Astronomy, and more in this book uncovering thousands of years of magical history.

9. For the New Comics Reader In Your Life – VISION TP VOL.1 LITTLE WORSE THAN MAN TP

This book transcends the genre, and is so much more than just a superhero book – it’s truly a great comic book that ranks up there with modern classics like V FOR VENDETTA, THE AUTHORITY, and more with how it redefines the entire idea of superhero comics.
Vision is one of those very rare, very unique comics that will end up being talked about for years to come, and if you’ve never read it – now’s the time.

The Vision wants to be human, and what’s more human than family?

So he heads back to the beginning, to the laboratory where Ultron created him and molded him into a weapon.

The place where he first rebelled against his given destiny, and imagined he could be more – that he could be a man. There, he builds them. A wife, Virginia. Two teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition (or is that obsession?): the unrelenting need to be ordinary.

Behold the Visions!

They’re the family next door, and they have the power to kill us all. What could possibly go wrong?

Artificial hearts will be broken, bodies will not stay buried, the truth will not remain hidden, and the Vision will never be the same. Collecting VISION (2015) #1-6.

Folks, just trust us — this is what good comics are made of. Get into it!


10. For the STAR WARS fan in the house – DARTH VADER VOL.1 IMPERIAL MARCH

‘The first ever glimpse at what happened to Vader between EPISODE III and EPISODE IV — Picking up where Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith ends, follow Darth Vader as he receives his legendary red lightsaber and begins his ruthless rise!
Anakin Skywalker is now more machine than man. Having lost everything once dear to him, he must forge a new future – as a Dark Lord of the Sith!

Join Darth Vader as he learns the way of Darth Sidious and his newly formed Empire – the way of the dark side.

And on his first mission, Vader sets his sights on a Jedi who avoided Order 66, a Master who’s long lived in seclusion – one more powerful than any he has faced before!

Nobody said the path to power was going to be easy.


11. For the Manga Fanatic: MANGA BOX SETS!

13. For the Fan Who Has Everything Part Two: DRAWER BOXES!

So, you know you’ve got a Third Eye Faithful at home who pretty much has everything ever put to paper, right?

And, you’re like: OK, what’d I get this diehard fan?

One word, folks: STORAGE!

And, the Collection Drawer brand DRAWER BOXES are the best kind of storage you can give. There’s other brands of drawer boxes out there, but they’re nowhere near as durable, or easy to use as these.

These not only help store your collection in stackable, weight-bearing boxes (meaning you can get those long boxes out of your living room and into the closet!), but they also come with adjustable dividers to help label and organize your collection.

We have both long and short boxes in stock.


14. For the STRANGER THINGS fan in the house — PAPER GIRLS

Netflix’s STRANGER THINGS is pretty much the best thing ever, right? And, you know you’ve got someone who thinks that and then some, right?

Well, we’ve got the perfect thing to get that person reading some killer comics: Brian K. Vaughan’s PAPER GIRLS series from Image Comics.

With gorgeous artwork courtesy of CLIFF CHIANG (who redefined WONDER WOMAN in the NEW 52 Wonder Woman series with BRIAN AZZARELLO), PAPER GIRLS delivers one of the freshest, and most compelling reads we’ve seen in 2016 yet!

In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this smashhit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood. Collects PAPER GIRLS #1-5.

This all new ongoing series captures the charm of a John Hughes movie like BREAKFAST CLUB or SIXTEEN CANDLES and combines it with the sci-fi horror of WAR OF THE WORLDS or INDEPENDENCE DAY!

We highly recommend scooping a copy, and getting into it – it’ll be the best thing you read this year, we can pretty much promise you that!

This collection features the first five issues of the comic book series, including “”The Wubba Lubba Dub Dub of Wall Street,” “Mort-Balls!” and more, along with hilarious mini-comics showcasing the whole family.

If not, will they let him walk away? And in a story ripped from the headlines, Castle must take on rival Irish gangs when a bomb goes off in Hell’s Kitchen!
