Since it’s the holiday season, I thought it might be useful to put together a gift guide for that special comic con junkie in your life. The list is split between convention supplies and convention exclusives and features items in everyone’s budget.
Let’s get to the goodies!
I’ve covered convention supplies before, so I won’t include the full list here. The items below are the cream of the crop though. These are items that I couldn’t live without. They make attending conventions so much easier.
The Ultimate Convention Backpack
The Everki Titan is designed to hold up to an 18.4″ laptop, which gives enough room to hold 11″ x 17″ plastic sleeves. This may not seem like a big deal, but I bought the Titan for this reason alone. Since I own this bag, I can say that, yes, it’s huge and slightly expensive, but if you’re like me and you bring a ton of stuff to conventions (or buy a bunch of stuff at conventions), then you’ll love this backpack.
$166.99 at Amazon
Comic Book Folio Case
This comic book folio case will protect your comics. Plus, it’s not too expensive. That makes it a win-win.
$9.65 at Amazon
These plastic sleeves are great for protecting artwork and prints. Plus they fit well in the Everki Titan!
$25.95 at Amazon
Like the sleeves above, this poster tube will keep your posters safe while walking through a convention.
$17 at Amazon
This portable charger is under $30, has attachments for both Android and iPhone and can come in handy even when you’re not at comic con.
$27.99 at Amazon
Captain America Journal
Collect autographs or document your experience at Comic Con in this Captain America Journal.
Sometimes comic book convention exclusives don’t sell out and they become available for everyone to buy. These are some of my favorite recent exclusives that are available to buy online.
Chew Patriotic Plush Chog – Boston Comic Con Exclusive
This BCC Exclusive Patriotic Plush Chog comes from the pages of one of my favorite comics, Chew. It’s adorable and it tastes like chicken! Well, not actually, please don’t eat this plush toy.
$20 at Skelton Crew Studios
I love this SDCC Exclusive Aquaman Pop! figure because of the cool patina look. Plus it’s a great price for an exclusive vinyl figure.
$11.90 at Amazon
Batman The Animated Series Bust – SDCC Exclusive
Batman TAS stands as one of the greatest representations of The Dark Knight, making this SDCC Exclusive Batman Bust an easy choice for the list.
$51.99 at Amazon
That smile on the Joker makes this NYCC Exclusive The Killing Joke vinyl look like a lot of fun. Those who have read the graphic novel know otherwise though.
$29.95 at Amazon
Skottie Young’s iconic style is captured in this SDCC Exclusive Rocket Raccoon statue, making it a fun addition to the list.
$89.99 at Amazon
While we may not know who will end up sitting on the Iron Throne, this NYCC Exclusive Pop! Vinyl Throne will let us live out the fantasy at home.
$39.99 at Amazon
If you couldn’t tell yet, I’m a huge Batman fan and a sucker for all of these different exclusive figures. This NYCC Exclusive Batman Rainbow Detective is one of my favorites only because Batman could never sneak around Gotham in that costume!
