The ComicsAlliance 2014 Holiday Gift Guide
The Holiday Gift-Giving season is upon us once again, and as always, that presents a pretty unique problem for comic book readers. We tend to hit our local shops or Comixology every week to grab our favorite books, so when it comes to finding something in comics that we really like, well, chances are good that we already have it.

So whether you're looking for something to give to a comic book fan or just looking for something to tell your loved ones to look for so that you don't end up with another box of Spider-Man themed Monopoly (note: this is the worst possible present), we're here with the first installment of our 2014 Holiday Gift Guide!
