The holidays are mostly over, so that means one thing: it's time to count up those gifts you received! Of course, this being a comic book blog, we are mostly interested in comic book related items you got as a gift this year, but feel free to share anything of note.
My comic book-related haul was actually very small, as none of my extended family really knows I like comics, and my closer relatives gave me stuff I actually need instead of stuff I want. I did get a Thor: Ages of Thunder hardcover though, which I plan to review sometime in the near future.
Additionally, my wife got me the oddest gift of the season: X-Men Monopoly. All the "properties" are mutants, game pieces are random X-Men and so on. It is apparently an extremely rare (since it's out of stock) version, and I'm also going to be doing an extended post about it in the days to come as it is basically a time machine to what the X-Men franchise was like a couple of years ago.
Anyway, enough about me, what comic book related gifts did you get this season? Let me know in the comments section!
