Over the last few weeks, our 2014 Gift Guide has detailed a number of comic book related ideas that you should consider wrapping up for that special pop-culture comic book fan in your life. You can check out two of those lists here and here.
Now, those selections are a little on the pricier side of things, but there are a number of fantastic – and affordable – comic book related compilations that you could lovingly give this holiday season.
Follow me after the jump, and I’ll run through eight different titles, in multiple collections, that everyone needs to reading!
He’s the King of Comics. A man who left an indelible mark upon the medium, using his peerless imagination to create some of the greatest stories and characters ever told. In 2015, celebrate Jack “King” Kirby’s incredible contribution to comic book history in the monumental, decades-spanning KING-SIZE KIRBY HARDCOVER collection! More after the jump.
With the rising popularity of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series (wha-hoo!) and the anticipation mounting for the next Avengers film, Avengers: Age of Ultron, released next year, it’s a great time to revisit that stable of characters.
Of course, it’s also a perfect time of year to do that.
For those of you looking for a stocking stuffer, follow me after the jump and I’ll tell you why Avengers NOW! #1 makes for the perfect comic to fill that sock hanging off the mantle!
Biff Bam Pop! presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind.

It’s the holiday season and that means, beyond the big hardcover and softcover collections of great comic book series you find on store shelves this time of year, you’re also likely to see holiday special comic books!
I’m not sure how she got this popular, but Harley Quinn, the fun and fetishly sexy side of Batman’s arch nemesis, the crazed Joker, has got her own Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1.
Follow me after the jump and I’ll tell you exactly what that means!
This is what we have been waiting for since we first saw the pilot for “The Flash” way back during the summer – the Reverse-Flash. We’ve been teased with the same blurry image at the beginning of each episode. For newbies to the mythos, it’s the man who killed young Barry Allen’s mother, and for the comics fans, it’s the Flash’s most dangerous foe, his archenemy, the sociopathic Reverse-Flash. Tonight, he and our hero meet for the first time as equals. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Man in the Yellow Suit.”

Those were some big books that require some degree of heavy lifting. But they’re not the only ones that would make fantastic gifts this year!
Follow me after the jump and I’ll detail a few more awesome tomes released earlier this year that any comic book, comic book historian or comic book art lover – would absolutely love to have their hands on!
