Special Post

The holidays are just around the bend and it is better to prepare your gifts early, here are some awesome gifts that you can give to your loved ones or buy them to yourself :

Collectibles:
Batman B&W Arkham Asylum:
Considering that one of the hottest video game releases of this holiday season is Batman: Arkham City, it’s only fitting to complement that hype with this gorgeous DC Direct statue from their Batman: Black and White line, celebrating Arkham City’s precursor, Arkham Asylum. Standing confident in all of his glory, the Arkham Asylum Batman stands just over 7 inches tall and lives up to the high standards set by DCD’s other fine products. Best of all, this statue is on the relative cheap side: only $80 for one of the best Batman collectibles of the year.




Darth Maul with Mechanical Legs:
Few people will dispute the idea that Darth Maul was the coolest part of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. Yet he was chopped in half by Obi-Wan Kenobi in the film’s final battle and exited our lives forever. That is, until a Dark Horse Comics story revealed that he’d actually survived and got himself some ostrich-style mechanical legs to seek vengeance on the Jedi that almost killed him. Sideshow celebrates that storyline with this badass, highly detailed statue of everyone’s second-favorite Sith Lord. What would the holidays be without some Star Wars? The Holiday Special notwithstanding, of course.


Comics:
Watchmen:
If you’re trying to convert a burgeoning comic book fan to a full-on graphic novel aficionado, there are few places better to start than Watchmen. The revered graphic novel from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons offers a look at superhero comics like you’ve never seen them before or since. Between a multi-layered narrative, an engaging murder mystery, insanely complex artwork and a backdrop of a dystopian 1980s America, Watchmen helped shove comics into the literary mainstream. It’s available in many different formats, from an expensive Absolute Edition to the more reasonably priced trade paperback. Either way, it’s a must-own for any fan.You also check out our review of it.







Y the last man:
When people are arguing over the best comic series ever made, Vertigo’s Y: The Last Man usually factors into that conversation. Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s examination of what the world would be like without a Y chromosome (except for one man, Yorick, and his pet monkey, Ampersand) is a fascinating look under the microscope at our society when the world seems to be coming to a plausible end. Just be warned: you’ll probably be crying by the time you wrap this puppy up. You can get your Y: The Last Man fix via 10 trade paperback collections or from five over-sized hardcovers.
