Comic books

There are only so many hours of superhero entertainment that film studios can get on the screen in one year. But comic book creators? That's different.

For a starting point, why not try one of the Marvel Essential books, that bring together lots in one go?

T-shirts

For every superhero movie, there are a dozen T-shirts, if not more. Some of the most inventive are the 'unofficial' ones that take slogans and quotes from films, and turn them into something really quite inspired. Searching around a theme is key to finding some of the best.

Their own Bat Cave (ish)

Well, the budget goes a bit north here. But to live the superhero lifestyle, you need the superhero surroundings. An actual superhero den? Quite expensive. So how about these big wall adhesives instead? Far more economical...

Lots of Discs

The obvious gift perhaps, even if the avid comic book movie fan is likely to have lots of them already. Why not, instead, look towards some of the special collectors' sets? The pack put together for The Dark Knight Trilogy, is full of treats. Or why not go further back, and pick up the original The Incredible Hulk TV series in one set?

A movie prop

Got a bit more money to spend and want to get them something extra, extra special? Then how about this: an actual prop used from a comic book movie. Shop carefully of course, to check whether you're getting a replica or the real thing. And note that prices can range from a few pounds to, well, a lot of pounds....
 
Happy shopping!
