The day after Thanksgiving is, of course, Black Friday, and if you’re looking to share your wealth by buying some comic stuff, I’d like to direct your attention to Tom Spurgeon’s Black Friday Holiday Shopping Guide 2012, where he has all manner of wonderful suggestions of things to buy, as well as some common sense provisos:
As I have little chance of actually selecting something for your friend or loved one, please use this as a starting point only. It’s unlikely I’ll have discovered just the thing. More likely what follows will give you an idea as to what’s out there, or spark some brainstorming that leads to an idea for something specifically suited to your loved one. I’m also quite certain I’m forgetting a list of items and ideas equally as long as the one that follows. That list is almost certainly filled with quality works and books. I apologize profusely for their absence here. This is not meant to be a comprehensive list, and anyone that thinks such a list is even possible these days may be a fool.
If nothing else, I’ve found some things on there that I’m fairly convinced that I’d like to give myself… That’s okay, right…?
