The holiday season is fast approaching, and that means it’s time to hit the shops! If you’re looking for inspiration for gifts for all the important people in your life, ComicsAlliance has put together a series of guides centered on different themes and personalities!

 

There’s a strong strain of the collector in fandom, and buying for a comics fan can be a difficult endeavor, because so much of what they want is something they already know about. But even the most famous writers, artists, and characters have obscurer works that often go overlooked.

This gift guide looks at deep cuts for the superfan in your life, and we've divided into three sections; favorite artists, favorite writers, and favorite characters. If you know someone who is passionate about Darwyn Cooke, devoted to Warren Ellis, or a big-time Superman fan, we may have the perfect gift suggestion.

While the links on this list lead to sites like Amazon and Comixology, we strongly suggest that you support local comic shops and book shops wherever possible. Supporting local businesses helps your local economy and your local comics community.

If you’re not sure where the nearest comic store is, type your zip code or postal code into this website and find one close to you. These stores will appreciate your business just as much as the person you're buying for will appreciate these gifts.
