    I know exactly what I want to get my giftee.

    Oh, I forgot to mention. I'm pro-hardcopy. I spend enough time as it is staring at my laptop screen.

    Dear Santa,

    Link to my Amazon wish list.
    http://amzn.com/w/XNVPE60GLHW1

    As far as top stuff, Warren Ellis, Hellblazer and Hellboy are all tied for first place just in case you were unsure which I liked more =)
    I really love Hellboy, I only have the trades up to trade 8 and then I haven't had a chance to pick up anymore, and sadly I do not own any of the BPRD books =(. I LOVE Hellblazer but only have All His Engines, and Bloodlines.
    I am a super HUGE fan of warren ellis, I have all of transmet, Nextwave, his Ultimate Galactus run, and the book he wrote, Crooked Little Vein and sadly that's all I have of his stuff. ( strange kisses, global frequency, ect et would be super awesome ! ) I have most of the trades for Hack slash, I have the collected Bone trade. One of the books I am always on the look out for is the Grendel Prime trade, but I cant seem to find it, I loaned my copy to someone and never saw it again =(.

    I am just getting into Paul Pope, I have Heavy Liquid but thats all I have seen as far as his stuff goes,
    I own V for vendetta and Watchmen and love them both.
    I have the absolute Powers Vol 1 book and loves it.
    I am a HUGE Deadpool fan but no longer own any of the books due to a robbery last year, lost my Hitman collection in that as well.
    I also have the first 2 trades for walking dead and Fables and enjoy them both.
    I am also a fan of The Goon , and have the first fancy pants edition, I dig Umbrella Academy, but sadly do not have any of the books, I also have Aqua Leung which I enjoyed.
    I am open to checking out anything my santa decides to go for =)


    If my secret santa wants I can also provide my girlfriends email address, since I think she picked me up a few books but wont tell me what they are, might be a good idea to hit her up, shes evil and wont tell me anything about my presents either ;)

    Dear Santee, please post some ideas of books you are into. Stalking you is not turning up any thing specific, just that you like comics. A little help would make your present way more enjoyable ^_^

    Okay, everyone should now be sorted with their giftee and address and so on. A bit of last minute complications there, but I think between CLOC and me everything is sorted. Please, those who haven't posted their lists, make sure they do our your gifters won't know what to get you! Thanks everyone! :D

I also collect g.i joes, marvel universe(only missing rare things like astral strange) and lego mini-figs(again I have most that I want but still cant find that stupid elf or spartan). hope that helps oh I like videogames too :rotate: Aliens Infestation was awsome. Also a big Atomic Robo robo fan but I still haven't really gotten to read more then hjis free comic book day comic

    Yeah, that would probably be a good idea.


    Not for me, personally. I already sent my giftee his gift.

    I've been collecting most of Marvel since 2008 and I have a massive collection of 2nd hand Marvel singles, but they're fairly sporadic. Anything from DC is pretty safe but I'm open to pretty much anything, any publisher, whatever. Any of the classic arcs raved about in here would be cool, but like I said, I'm pretty open!

    Hey, I have received my Secret Sentry gift! Crimsondude hooked me up with a subscription to the Marvel DCU! Thanks!

    Now, time to get caught up on the last few years of Marvel comics...

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Alrighty, here's my list of stuff I have:

    Trades/hardcovers:
    Spoiler:

    Singles:
    I don't really have a list (although every year I tell myself that THIS! This is the year in which I conduct a full inventory and census!). I have a lot of singles! It's mostly Marvel, with some DC here and there (I've become a regular DC buyer with the New 52). Here's some stuff that I can think of off the top of my head.

    Batman (Morrison's run)
    New Avengers (the first New Avengers; I have burned out on Avengers, and stopped buying with the transition to the new New/Secret/Mighty setup)
    Everything Deadpool (Deadpool's first solo series, Cable & Deadpool, Deadpool's second solo series, etc)
    Thor (JMS, Gillen, Fraction)
    Invincible Iron Man
    every major event that Marvel and DC have put out in the past 5 years or so

    In terms of what sort of a gift I'd like to get, dear gift-giver, my top choice would be something that you think is awesome, but I may not have heard of (or, if I have heard of, might not have picked up). Basically, I want something that I wouldn't get for myself, because I want my horizons expanded. Do you have weird indie, niche thing that you love? I want to love it too!

    If you'd like specific recommendations, here are a couple of things that I'm interested in:
    Y the Last Man (always wanted to read this, never got to it somehow)
    Good Transformers stories (Antimatter makes it seem like there are good stories and bad ones, and the bad ones are really bad; I would prefer to not read those)
    That new Darkwing Duck series (seems pretty cool)
    I've been looking for New Invaders: To End All Wars for a while, and haven't found it yet
    Warhammer 40k: Damnation Crusade (I'd like any good Warhammer 40k comic, frankly. I hear Damnation Crusade is good)

    Edit: Oh, and yes, I would prefer physical, dead-tree versions of things, because I'm a huge sentimentalist, and love books not just for what they contain, but also as entities onto themselves.

    if someone is going to deliver transformers stories to deldu for some reason (there's better things to give)
    Hearts of Steel is a great standalone, the IDW collections for The Best of Megatron, Optimus Prime, Grimlock, and Starscream are worth considering as sample platters
    Spotlight Kup is a fantastic single issue, and All Hail Megatron 15 has a story that follows up on that issue

  • DelduwathDelduwath Registered User regular
    Also, a request: If possible, could you (my dear gift-target) put up a list of stuff that you already own? I rather enjoy going off-script and buying people not only the things they put on their wishlist, but also just stuff that I think they might like; if they don't put up a list of what they own, I might end up getting them a duplicate by accident.

    Of course, I understand that something like this takes time one doesn't always have, and it's totally cool if you don't put a list up. I'll figure something out.

    Oh Anti, I feel like I can summon you out of the ether even in Real Life just by calling out "Transformers comics!". (If I really need you urgently, should I scream something like "Pat Lee is a pretty decent individual and a very honest employer!"?)

    Thanks for the recommendations, by the way. I'll keep that list on hand, and see about checking those books out even if I don't get them as presents.

    I have personally delivered you all information regarding your Secret Sentry giftees now, each of them encoded with SHIELD's finest data encryption programs. Anyone who hasn't been sent a message, please inform me and I will resolve the troubling crisis! Also, when gifters send their presents can they message me to inform me of this, just so I can cross them off the list stored in the Watchtower databases. Thank you! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!

    I didn't get a message. :(

    Dear Secret Sentry Recipient. I opted not to wrap in favor of adding an additional title to your collection. I figured if there was extra paper in the box you should at least be able to use it. Shipped today!

    I think I'll make a shopping run this weekend.

    EDIT: Now I HAVE to.

    I come home from work, psyching myself up to run a double header of D&D games. When I see things on my computer chair.

    Hrm....

    Ah-ha, a note! (Name blocked to protect the possibly innocent)

    Oooh ... Phonogram is awesome. So is Sleeper. You are going to like them.


    Anyway, I arrived to find my gift waiting for me. Yay!

    I got Dynamo 5, SHIELD vol.1, and Scalped vol.8. All awesome. Thank you.

    However, I did not get a note or anything. I can appreciate that. So I would just like to once again say thank you very much, Secret Sentry, whoever you are.
