Comic Book Gift Ideas

According to the media, many people have gone into a shopping frenzy now that Thanksgiving has passed and the time for gift-giving is approaching.  Since there are only a few "Best Comics of 2010" lists around to give you gift ideas, I thought I'd remind everyone that you can always select gifts from the highly-praised comics of yesteryear.

So here are the Comics of Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa Past, a.k.a the "Best Comics" Meta-Lists from 2005 through 2009.  These lists combined many different "best comics of the year" lists, written by reviewers and critics across the internet, into single lists of the top comic books of each year.

Here are the Meta-Lists:


  1. I've been looking forward to your Best of 2010 lists. I peruse your meta-lists every year to see what I've missed. I'm working on mine for this year, but In the meantime, here's a few gift ideas for this year:
