A big moment for the Marvel movies this year as Spider-man’s first solo movie set in the Marvel Universe (meaning it’s set in the same timeline as The Avengers)

Probably everyone’s first favourite superhero, the web-slinger is set to be a big part of the Marvel movies for years to come.

A good one for Boxing Day during a food coma.

The Justice League has braved the big screen for their first adventure.

Though that’s not out to own this year. So to satisfy their thirst for DC’s premiere superhero team witness their most recent origin story which pits a group of very different heroes together for the first time with the world at stake.

For the one you’re unsure about

Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 1

The live action is out in Japan during December, so why not find them a new addiction in the form of manga.

Manga being essentially Japanese Comics. Witness the tale of two brothers trying to right a wrong where Alchemy is the ruling power.

Power Rangers by Boom Comics – Any volume you can get a hand on

n3 Gift Guide 2017 – Comics 101! - n3rdabl3

Smaller comic book publisher, Boom Comics has got the rights to publish Power Rangers comics and they are great.

I’m biased being a lifelong fan of the franchise, but if you get your hands on any volume of this series it will indeed be a Merry Christmas.
