Holiday Gift Guide: Ryan North’s ‘To Be Or Not To Be’

To Be Or Not To Be

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.
