‘Tis the season for last minute shopping and 2-day Amazon shipping.
Can’t A Grown Man Read Comics doesn’t want you to disappoint your respective fan-boo or comic book obsessed cousin with piss-poor gift decisions at the zero hour. In an effort to write as little as possible (I have my own last minute shopping to do, y’know) and as an act of good will (’tis the season) I present to you a list of ten items you can easily grab from the internet before Christmas Day.
Let’s face it…even in a crappy economy, comic book nerds can be gluttonous when it comes to merch. There is a “I want that first” mentality that has plagued (and imploded) the comic book industry and it shows no signs of stopping. For that reason, your safest bet is to let them sort out what they want for Christmas. So why don’t you just strap on an oxygen mask, brave the sarcastic underbelly that is the local comic book store, and just get them a gift card. I guarantee you that they will spend it all by Wednesday, December 29th.
Do Not Get: Anything on this list.
