Nerding 101: Holiday Gift Guide Pt. 1

Hello! Welcome to Carly on Comic's first ever Holiday Gift Guide! Below are a few ideas for that nerd (or nerdette) in your life. Enjoy!

1) Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall-- This book is the perfect gift for mom, or that special lady in your life. It gives you a lot of the "Fables" story lines in one book. It's a prequel to the "Fables" series, and tells all sorts of origin stories about your favorite characters. The best part is that you don't have to have read ANY of the ongoing series to enjoy it. Bill Willingham delivers a wonderful story, while a variety of different artists take on the illustration of the book. It is an absolutely amazing gift.

2) Kick-Ass vol 2, issue 1. Ultimate Comics Edition.- The guys over at Ultimate Comics make some pretty amazing scores. They had their own custom issue on "The Walking Dead" #75 made, and they also have their own edition of "Kick-Ass" vol 2, issue 1. This rare comic is a great addition to any collection, and I guarantee if you send Alan, or any of the guys over at Ultimate an e-mail, or give them a calll, they'd be more than happy to help you out. This is the perfect score when you're looking for a present for the guy who has everything.

3) Dr Who, The Complete Fifth Series- This is the most current incarnation of The Doctor. Starring Karen Gillan and Matt Smith, this season will get you right where you need to be. Matt Smith is NOT Evan T.'s number one choice for The Doctor, so if you want to explore Evan T.'s favorite Doctor, pick up series 2-4 for the David Tennant incarnation of the time lord. With plenty of twists and turns, Dr Who will soon become one of your favorite new shows.

4) DC Comic Plushes- These ADORABLE doll versions of your favorite DC characters are a GREAT stocking stuffer. Once unwrapped, there will surely be an "AWWWWWW" to follow.

5) The Walking Dead Compendium One- Now this one is one everyone can enjoy. It's the story that the TV show was based on. Robert Kirkman delivers an amazing story of humanity and zombies and what happens when the world is cut off. It's a story about survival and human nature. and zombies, of course! The compendium collects 1-48 of the comic series, and from what I understand it also includes a bonus story cannot be found anywhere else. This gift will not disappoint.

That's all I've got this week, but I'll be posting more next week with opinions from Evan T. and The Editor as well!
