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.
We've talked about The Devastator a few times around here before, but this month, our favorite quarterly comedy mag is back in action with a new issue themed around crossovers. It makes sense, too: If Internet t-shirt sales have taught us anything, it's that people love it when two things they recognize are mashed up together to produce something new, like, say, Buffy in a TARDIS, or Finn and Jake in a TARDIS, or that lady from Game of Thrones in a TARDIS.
Nothing we've seen yet, however, has managed to top The Devastator's Imperial Walker: Texas Ranger.
I was already a pretty big fan of The Devastator, the quarterly comedy mag that's featured CA favorites like Michael Kupperman, but now, they have turned their attention to doing something truly altruistic. With San Diego's Comic-Con International coming up next week, they've released a mobile game for iOS called Comic-Con Star Stalker, a free time-waster designed to give you something to do in those long, long panel lines.
