#25 Super Hero T-Shirts.
Want to give the gift reciever not only something they will love, but also something they will use? Then Marvel and DC t-shirts are great. Coming in many different styles and sizes, these make great gifts and are, surprisingly, very fashionable. I personally like the Superman and Scarlet Spider t-shirts.
#24 Comic Book Backing Boards/Protective Slips.
#23 Lego Star Wars/Lego Hulk.
For the younger audience and Lego fan, you can’t go past the Star Wars TIE Fighter. This signature and extremely popular Star Wars ship is very fun to build and even more fun to play with. If they aren’t so much into Star Wars, then this Lego Hulk Helicarrier Breakout set might do the trick.
#22 Black Widow Perfume For Women.
This perfume might not make them look like Black Widow, but it will definitely make them smell the part. A clear shot of citrus and fresh berries create a statement which slowly gives way to a sensual caramel and honey note, but kept too sweet by a pairing of dry Australian Sandalwood.
#21 Marvel/DC Bobble Heads.
These Marvel and DC bobble heads make great gifts! Not only do they have vibrant colors and look great on any shelf, they are relatively cheap! At 7 inches tall and coming in a really awesome-looking box, you have many different Bobble Heads to choose from.
#20 iPhone 4 Super Hero Cases.
iPhone 4 cases are very popular these days. And, although they are a tad expensive, they are very stylish and keep any iPhone 4 safe from breaking and getting scratches. They also come in many different styles, I suggest the Iron Man cover!
#19 Darth Vader Ceramic Cookie Jar.
As seen in The Big Bang theory, The Star Wars™ Limited Edition Darth Vader Ceramic Cookie Jar is hand-painted ceramic and numbered by hand. Includes an official certificate of authenticity. 12 inches tall, it can keep your cookies fresh and serve as a fabulous addition to your Star Wars memorabilia
#18 Adventures of TinTin Graphic Novels.
These Tintin books make a great gift for people of all ages. Join traveling reporter Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy, along with well-known friends, such as Captain Haddock, as they embark on extraordinary adventures spanning historical and political events, fantasy, and science-fiction adventures and thrilling mysteries.
#17 Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Video Game.
Know someone who likes to game and who is into Batman and DC Comics? Then Lego Batman 2 is a great gift. Not only can you play as Batman, but you can also play as a huge host of DC characters from Superman down to Alfred Pennyworth. While this game is a little cheaper on the PC, it’s still fairly cheap on Xbox 360 and PS3!
#16 Walking Dead TV Bicycle Girl Zombie Action Figure.
#15 Monopoly: Marvel Comics Collector’s Edition
#14 Green Lantern Animated Series Hal Jordan Statue.
Measuring approximately 12.3″ high x 6.4″ wide x 5.5″ deep, this hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain statue is packaged in a Limited Edition 4-color box. They might not watch the Green Lantern animated series, but the Hal Jordan Green Lantern is a major part of any DC fan’s collection.
#13 The Avengers Movie Blu-Ray.
Whether you’re into comic books or not, everyone loved The Avengers movie that came out this year. Which means The Avengers Blu-Ray edition won’t disappoint. Not only does this have the movie, but it also has behind-the-scene footage and is a must for any Blu-Ray collection.
#12 The Dark Knight Trilogy Blu-Ray.
The Dark Knight Rises was the final Batman movie in the Christopher Nolan trilogy. If you know someone who loved every second of all three movies, then they will 100% appreciate this gift. Much like the Avengers movie Blu- Ray, this is a must for any Blu-Ray collection.
#11 Justice League Crisis On Two Earth’s DVD.
From Warner Home Video, Inc., in Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, a heroic Lex Luthor arrives from an alternate universe to recruit the Justice League to help save his Earth from the Crime Syndicate, a gang of villainous characters with virtually identical super powers to the Justice League. What ensues is the ultimate battle of good versus evil in a war that threatens both planets and, through a diabolical plan
launched by Owlman, puts the balance of all existence in peril!
#10 Classic Marvel Characters.
I personally love these classic Marvel character collectibles. Not only are they good-looking, but there are many to choose from and many to collect. These will look great in anyone’s collection. Male or female, young or old!
#9 Saga Volume 1
Saga is one of the biggest and highly-rated comic book titles of the year. Image have kindly compiled the first six issues of saga into one handy graphic novel. If you want to give the gift of an amazing story, then Saga Vol. 1 is the way to go.
#8 75 Years of DC Comics
In honor of the publisher’s 75th anniversary, TASCHEN has produced the single most comprehensive book on DC Comics, in an XL edition even Superman might have trouble lifting. More than 2,000 images – covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and collectibles – are reproduced using the latest technology to bring the storylines, characters, and their creators to vibrant life as
they’ve never been seen before. It might be a little pricey, but any DC fan will truly love it.

This is a must-have for any Batman fan. Batman: Earth One gives a new insight into Bruce Wayne’s transformation into Batman and his first year as The Dark Knight. This story is a great read and it is quite cheap.
#4 Complete Avengers Vs X-Men Novel.
One of the biggest events of the comic book world in 2012 was the Avengers vs. X-Men series. I will be the first to admit that it was hard to keep up with all of the AvX content. Luckily, Marvel released this complete Avengers vs. X-Men graphic novel, which is the perfect gift for any Marvel fan.
#3 Walking Dead Volume 1.
The Walking Dead is one of the best TV shows of all time and, if you know someone who is keen to get into the comic book series the TV show is based on, then this is the perfect gift for them.
