There are many gifts you can get the James Bond fan for the holidays. The obvious choice would be the DVDs or Blu-Rays of the movies, or maybe one of the beautiful sets of all the movies. You could get the books, either the originals by Ian Fleming, or later ones by John Gardner and others. Recently an amazing bad boy of a holiday gift came to my attention – a beautiful poster book from the fine folks at DK Publishing. More about James Bond: 50 Years of Movie Posters after the jump.
Our friends at DK Publishing produce some truly amazing books but they’ve outdone themselves this year with their 2012 version of the slipcase hardcover: DC Comics: Year By Year A Visual Chronicle Updated Edition. Not only is it a great looking tome, but DK has actually made some sense of the DC Universe’s intricately tangled (and fanboy infuriating) eight decades worth of story continuity while laying the groundwork for the next set of important stories to unfurl.
It’s a lovely sight to behold!
Biff Bam Pop’s Holiday Gift Guide – LEGO Batman 2 & DC Universe Super Heroes Batman Visual Dictionary
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
I’m a comic book fan and a LEGO fan, so when you combine those two interests in one product, you can pretty much take the money right out of my wallet. Somehow I missed out on the first LEGO Batman video game, but I kept hearing great things about LEGO Batman 2. I’ve enjoyed some of the other LEGO game franchises, specifically Lego Star Wars and Indiana Jones, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and fun of LEGO Batman 2.
Happy birthday, Spider-Man! This year marks the 50th Anniversary of everybody’s favourite wall-crawler, and we’ve had the chance to celebrate with all sorts of treats. There was the new film (my personal favourite in the Spidey series), a solid iOS based, free form game and some solid monthly writing from the great Dan Slott in the Amazing Spider-Man comics. Now, if you’re looking for something to get the Spider-Man freak in your life, there’s one book more than any other that’s a must have this holiday season!
Face front true believers, and read all about Spider-Man Chronicle after the jump!

If there’s a wrestling fan in your life, this holiday season there are a ton of great gifts out there. So many that if you give that special someone even just one, you’re guranteed to receive a promo of love if (yes, I’m talking wrestling-speak here). While all the monthly WWE Pay-Per-Views are available if you missed any during the course of the year (Wrestlemania being the biggest and Hell In The Cell in the most recent release), WWE has also put out a strong bunch of Blu-Rays/DVDs based on some of their most popular moments and athletes. Here’s a few recommendation:
CM Punk: Best In The World: this documentary highlights the ups and downs that the biggest breakthrough star of the last few years has faced as he’s climbed to the top of the WWE. Many critics have called this the best documentary WWE has produced since The Rise and Fall of ECW nearly ten years ago. The three-DVD/two-Blu-Ray set includes Punk’s most memorable matches and promos and is essential viewing for all fans.
