Holiday Gift Guide: Batman ’66 Action Figures

Batman '66 Action Figures

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.

We can all agree that the 1966 TV series is, of course, the One True Batman Above All Others, and recent developments in licensing have finally given us the toys we've (I've) wanted for years, but today, you can get them super cheap. I'm talking Surf Jams Batman for five bucks cheap.
