Hey there ComicVine! I just wanted to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Hope everyone got to spend plenty of time with family and friends.

So how was the haul this year guys? Get any good loot? I know I did...

  • Wonder Woman Vol.1 Blood (Hardcover) by Brian Azzarello
  • Batgirl Vol.1 The Darkest Reflection (HC) by Gail Simone
  • JLA Book 7: Tower of Babel by Mark Waid (was so stoked to unwrap this!)
  • Avengers Vs. X-Men (HC) by Brian Michael Bendis (I know it's sub-par but it's a status-quo changer for the Marvel Universe and I'm enjoying Marvel NOW! so I had to read it. Pretty much wanted this after the launch of Marvel NOW! like I wanted Flashpoint after the New 52 launched)
  • Spider-Men (HC) by Brian Michael Bendis
  • $100 in Amazon gift cards which I used to purchase:
  • Batman: Heart of Hush (HC) by Paul Dini
  • Avenging Spider-man Vol.1 My Friends Can Beat Up Your Friends (HC) by Zeb Wells
  • All Star Superman Vol. 2 (HC) by Grant Morrison (I loved Vol.1)
  • Justice League Vol.1 Origin (HC) (I was avoiding this because I generally don't like DC's team books but I took one more look at the creative team and caved)
    That's it for comics. The other gifts I recieved were:
    • Dishonored (Xbox 360) (Purchased with my Amazon gift cards as well)
    • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Xbox 360)
    • Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance (3DS)
    • Square Enix Mass Effect 3: Play Arts Kai: Garrus Vakarian Action Figure (definitely one of my favorite gifts)
    • The Amazing Spider-Man (Blu-Ray/DVD Combo)
    • The Dark Knight Rises (Blu-Ray/DVD Combo)
    • A Song of Ice and Fire Box Set (Books 1-4)
    • 8GB iPod Nano 4
    • 2013 Avengers Calendar
    • $25 Best Buy gift card
    • $45 Gamestop gift card
    • A bunch of other miscellaneous shirts, books, candy, etc.
      Whew! That was a lot! I am so blessed, and I am truly thankful for how fortunate I am. Hope all of you had a just as good, if not better, Chrismachanukwanzaakah!
      Here's to 2013!

@Dernman: Nice! It's like a whole other Christmas except you get to pick the gifts. Happy shopping!

@joshmightbe: Nice! That's a buncha' loot for a settled down adult! (lol, I'm 18 BTW)

The Adults on my mom's side of the family don't give presents to each other (they all decided to only buy for each other's kids.) so I bought my mom a few gifts this year. However, the Adult's on my dad's side of the family send a $#!7 ton of presents to each other.

I hope I get at least one present until the day I die. I love Christmas!
