Still looking for a holiday gift? What about buying signed comics from the Comic Book League Defense Fund? Proceeds go to a good cause, and they’ve got AWESOME stuff at good prices.
“Indianapolis-based artist Jason Ratliff started illustrating children’s shadows because he wanted to “show the inherent power of a child’s potential and imagination”. His Super Shadows series portrays the aspirations of children by turning their shadows into colourful, cubist representations of some of the most popular superheroes, from Spider-Man to Catwoman.”

“Since we didn’t actually get to spend much time with the Avengers in their formative days, TinyCo’s figured that’s the perfect timeframe to place its upcoming game, Marvel Avengers Academy.

Well. Okay then.
