I’ve long maintained that comics are the greatest Christmas present since there is a comic for everyone you know, even if they don’t know it yet. So, take a look at the list of titles below and see if there’s something out there for someone you know. Or maybe just pick up something for yourself, because there’s nothing wrong with that. We’ve assembled for you a list of some of the best comics collections that have been released this year, so let’s all find something to curl up with beside a nice fire.

See here below for our Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2018 for Comic Books and Graphic Novels.

While past reboots of Superman have put a greater focus on the Man of Steel’s life as reporter Clark Kent, newly hired DC Comics writer Brian Michael Bendis’ take on the character will be closely tied to the ideals of good journalism, the scribe explained during a panel at this year’s SXSW.

“I actually spent the day shadowing an Oregonian [journalist], just to show you how important the daily planet is to the stories we’ll be telling,” Bendis told Geeks Of Doom in response to a question about how the current climate of “fake news” and misinformation currently plaguing society might impact the storytelling. “On top of that, Journalism [is] under siege in my lifetime like it’s never been before.”

Superman Donut wall

One huge benefit of reuniting Superman with his iconic red trunks is the amount of attention it creates, which is very useful for DC Comics as it embarks on a brand new era for the Man of Steel. Case in point, the promotion pairs red underwear featuring #thetrunksareback hashtag on the back as well as a wall of Voodoo Doughnuts in the shape of Superman’s shield at this year’s SXSW (see photos above and below).

The thing about SXSW is that it makes you superhumanly exhausted. It’s why DC probably pulled out all the stops with its presence at the event this year, including showing up with Batman’s signature ride(s), a sneak peek at Syfy’s upcoming Superman prequel series, free coffee (because of course), and so much more. Check out details from the event here below.

Lobo

It was only a matter of time before Michael Bay even considered jumping aboard another blockbuster film. It’s practically his bread and butter. But after directing five Transformers films and a few gritty ones in between, it looks like Bay is looking to direct a superhero film. Well, at least one that fits his sense of direction. According to new reports, Bay is in talks to direct an adaptation of Lobo, about a grungy space bounty hunter who has crossed paths with some of DC’s most notable intergalactic heroes and villains. More on the story below.

Last week on The CW’s crossover “Crisis on Earth-X,” members of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow converged on Central City to celebrate the wedding of Barry Allen and Iris West (Grant Gustin, Candice Patton). Alas, that wedding did not happen because Nazis from Earth-35 aka Earth-X, the terrible world where Hitler won WWII, invaded the church and a fierce battle ensued. Our heroes had to fight their way out through Metallo, Red Tornado, OverGirl (Melissa Benoist), Evil Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), and Eobard Thawne wearing a Wells (Tom Cavanagh) face. They had one hero on their side that was lost on their Earth – Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller).

Warning! Spoilers below for all parts of The CW Crossover, including tonight’s episode of The Flash!

So far, on Crisis on Earth-X, all of the heroes and legends converged on Central City to attend the wedding of Barry and Iris (Grant Gustin, Candice Patton). Of course, happiness can’t happen without hitches and glitches, so Nazis invaded the ceremony, led by evil Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), evil Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), and the original Eobard Thawne wearing a Wells (Tom Cavanagh) face. They came from Earth-X, the 53rd earth where the Nazis won WWII. The plan? Save dying evil Supergirl by taking the heart of our Kara. Some cool battles ensued, but our heroes were left in a Nazi prison at the end of Arrow last night.

Spoilers below.

Rotten Tomatoes Score For ‘Justice League’ To Be Revealed Day Before Its Release

Justice League

The DCEU has had its fair share of bad films. Actually, almost all of them are incredibly bad with the exception of Wonder Woman. That being said, the franchise has somewhat of a reputation for producing disappointing superhero films. Something you can tell by just looking at their Rotten Tomato score.

While the aggregator site’s scores for films can be misleading at times, it is a tool that is used for a filmgoer to determine whether or not they will check out the film in question. So it really says a lot when Rotten Tomatoes will not reveal the score for Justice League until one day before the film’s release. More on the story below.

Justice League

Thor: Ragnarok isn’t the only superhero film to open this November. In just a few short weeks, Warner Bros. will be releasing their latest superhero ensemble film, Justice League. Featuring some of DC’s mightiest heroes, the film will bring together Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to stop a powerful threat that could put an end to all life as we know it.

Though we got a fleeting glimpse of Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) through the small deleted scene and a few trailers, a handful of new clips gives us not only our best look at the villain, but also just how powerful he is over the five heroes. So where is Superman (Henry Cavill) when you need him. Hopefully, the clips will answer that. Check it out below.
