Whether you're looking for the best comics to get for yourself or others, Ron, Josh, and Conor have a mighty stack of sequential suggestions for your holiday shopping needs. From crime, to superheroes, all the way to Oz, there is something for every list
The first Alan Moore selection is Absolute Promethea Vol. 1, which is perfect for people who like mysticism and a strong female protagonist, with art by the sublime JH Williams III.
If you like high flying, super intelligent gorillas, and crazy science ideas, you must read Alan Moore and Chris Sprouse's Tom Strong Deluxe Edition Vol. 1.
Finally, classic Alan Moore and David Lloyd is represented in the stunning Absolute V for Vendetta. Yes, it's better than the movie.
What if all the Fables moved to New York and became very popular and Vertigo released a beautiful Fables Deluxe Hardcover? Is that something you might be interested in?
Jeff Lemire's Essex County Trilogy is no stranger to the iFanboy show, but these complete volumes from Top Shelf are.
You want some manga? Check out Oishinbo, which is a series of books on Japanese cuisine, and all its facets.
Are you looking for a good horror comics anthology? Check out Split Lip from writer Sam Costello, for eleven original chilling short horror stories.
British Indie comics were defined in the 90's by Jamie Hewlett's Tank Girl, and now Titan Books have repackaged the series in new editions. Check out Tank Girl vol. 1. Again, it's much better than the movie.
Vertigo is releasing a bunch of original crime graphic novels. The best of the bunch so far is Brian Azzarello's Filthy Rich, about a down and out former football player, who gets mixed up in the wrong part of high society.
If we're talking about crime, you cannot miss the Criminal Omnibus from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. This stunning hardcover collects all of the first wave of stories in their excellent series.
Scott Kurtz has been doing his strip, PvP on the web for over ten years, and this huge Awesomology collects all of them. This huge slipcased volume is impressive and imposing. Watch the development of one the most biggest webcomics there is, but off the web.
Eric Shanower and Skottie Young team up to deliver The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a graphic novel adaptation of L. Frank Baum's classic story. Young's art has never been more vibrant or creative, and this one makes a great and unexpected gift.
Do you know someone who is looking for the best possible X-Men story out there, in the biggest most impressive format available? Look no further than the Astonishing X-Men Omnibus, collecting the entire legendary run of Joss Whedon and John Cassaday.
What holiday gift list would be complete without a Christmas story? Check out Alex Robinson's adaptation of another L. Frank Baum story, A Kidnapped Santa Claus, which is also iFanboy's December Book of the Month.
