Holiday Gift Guide: A Four Issue Subscription To ‘The Devastator’

The Devastator Quarterly

When it comes to the holiday gift-giving season, comic book readers are notoriously difficult to shop for. I mean, most of us are down at the shop buying our favorite stuff every single week, so when the time comes for people who like us to get us something we want, well, a lot of times we already have it. That’s why we’re stepping in with a public service, bringing you comics-related items sure to make the season brighter, whether you’re browsing for a gift or just looking for something to drop hints about so that you don’t get stuck with a random assortment of back issues again.

So why not give the gift that keeps on giving, keeping the Christmas spirit in your giftee’s heart all year round? Or at least, you know, four times a year when the new issue of The Devastator arrives.

The Devastator QuarterlyITEM: One-year (four issue) subscription to The Devastator

CLASSIFICATION: Comedy magazine subscription

AVAILABILITY: $30 at DevastatorQuarterly.com

Magazine subscriptions are a pretty strange beast in terms of Christmas presents. I used to get them all the time as a kid (Disney Adventures, mostly), but as an adult, despite my continued love of Thrashing and my desire for information about the superstars of World Wrestling Entertainment, periodicals never seem to find a place under my tree. This year, I say we all work together to reverse that trend, and The Devastator is a good place to start.

We’ve talked about the mag before, but in case you’ve missed it, The Devastator is a quarterly comedy magazine where each issue is built on a theme — the current issue is Toys & Games, but previous issues have focused on Crossovers, Video Games, Spies and so on — bringing in talent from the worlds of comedy writing and comic books to make some great gags. Past issues have seen CA favorites like Michael Kupperman, Jim Rugg, James Kochalka and Dan Hipp, as well as one surprising contribution by Brent Spiner.

You know. Data.

A subscription makes a great gift for the fan of offbeat humor and indie comics in your life, and as a bonus, you get to support an indie magazine that’s recently started doing some interesting (and important) work helping creators plan out their con seasons (really). Plus, they’re running a 10% off sale right now, though I don’t know how long that’s going to last. And hey, if you do go for it, then you’ve not only got Christmas taken care of, but also St. Patrick’s Day, Flag Day and, uh, my nephew’s birthday, I guess.
