Comics Haul-iday Gift Guide for Comic Books

For Someone Who Has Never Picked Up a Comic:

For Young Readers:

For Someone Looking to get into DC:

For Someone Looking to get into Marvel:

For Someone Looking to get into Indie Books:

For the Person Who Has Read Everything:

When in doubt- supporting a Local Comic Store is a win for everyone!

If your gift recipient has read practically everything there is, get them a giftcard to their local store or preferred method of book getting- cover a month of their subscription, help them pay off their pull, or let them treat themselves to something other than a comic. Many comic stores also carry gaming supplies, collectibles, and other cool comic paraphernalia.

Buying a giftcard helps the store through a holiday crunch that is bound to be impacted this year, and you know it’s going to get put to good use!
