Comic-Con: 40 Years of Artists, Writers, Fans, and Friends!

The awesome people that bring us San Diego Comic Con bring us a book documenting the last 40 years of the best con on earth. All the proceeds go to support SDCC, which is a non-profit. After going to this for the first time in July, I want to support them, but this is also something I really want! Best part: Shipping is free on your first two books, so you can get one as a gift and one as a gift for me...or yourself. Make sure you order yours soon because all orders after December 17th won't ship until January 3, 2011. This is the perfect gift for the con-crazed geek on your list.

Comic Book Legal Defense Fund: Reward Zone

CBLDF is fundraising this holiday season with a variety of amazing gifts in their Reward Zone and eBay Store. This includes books, signed books, signed art, signed comics... Do you see a pattern? My favorite item is the In Reilig Oran Print by Neil Gaiman and Tony Harris. This can only be found at CBLDF and you can get it signed by Neil Gaiman and Tony Harris in time to be under the tree. Can't pick one thing out? Then get a CBLDF membership so your friends and family can be card-carrying geeks too! This is perfect for the activist geek on your list!

#BoobieWed Epic Geek Girls Calendar

This is calendar organized by Natali of the UberDork Cafe and CoHost of The Power Geeks podcast. This calendar is super useful because it lists ALL of the major Comic Cons! Never miss a con again with this handy-dandy reminder! Part of the proceeds go to support Breast Cancer awareness and research, which is something that affects everyone. This is great for the pink comic geek on your list.

The Hero Initiative: eBay Store

If you don't know, The Hero Initiative provides financial and medical aid to comic creators and even helps them continue working, which is so important in this economy. What you probably don't know is that The Hero Initiative has the bestest eBay store ever! With stuff to buy and stuff to bid on, donating to a cause has never been more drool-worthy! I saw a bunch of potential gifties here, including some #600 Archie Comics that have original artwork on them! Shiny! My top gift pick has to be the Stan's Soapbox Limited Edition Hard Cover. Why is this so great? Cause it is SIGNED BY STAN LEE AND JOHN ROMITA!! Not to mention that it's numbered... This is a great gifty for that hard core Marvel geek on your list!
