Reading comic books has always been a great way to escape from the real world and after the year we’ve just had, the situation of which is likely to continue on into 2021, now more than ever is a great time for some escapism. So this holiday season, give the gift of comics – there’s plenty of new offerings: an all-new Dune adaptation; a master edition of Alan Moore’s From Hell; and even an audiobook for Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman! There’s lots to choose from, so check out our picks in our Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2020 for Comic Books and Graphic Novels.
To say that the year 2020 has been chaotic at best is an understatement of the highest order. Between an ongoing world pandemic to civil unrest, a “we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore” stance of all things racist and unfair, to a domestic Presidential election that left many flummoxed and drained and finally relieved, 2020 will be a year for the ages in the collective memory and history of the planet. And as always, music has acted as an almost collective balm for healing, inspiration, guidance, and direction during these unprecedented times. The beauty of music is that it always serves some sort of a purpose for the listener, giving forth to them a multitude of sonic choices and ultimately solutions within and without. Now more than ever, with a holiday season of uncertainty just on the horizon and one filled with an imposed and rightfully so global bondage on all of us, there’s still the divine union of giving gifts to loved ones and friends. And what better gift to give than the timeless gift of music? So, as is our annual wont, here’s the latest installment of musical selections and suggestions to help guide your choices, as always, served up with a little tequila in the eggnog.

2020 has been a year to remember, of that there is no doubt. But while we have had to learn to social distance and protect one another by wearing masks, one thing has remained consistent: Wizards of the Coast (and others) delivered treasure after treasure throughout this year and it might be the only thing that has kept me sane. New Dungeons & Dragons books and accessories have been released that any player or Dungeon Master will want to add to their collection. Below are a few, and I do mean just a few, of the plethora of items from this pandemic-infested cycle. Undoubtedly, you will find something for a friend or family member, but do not forget to get yourself a little something, too!
Here’s the 2020 Holiday Geek Gift Guide: Dungeons & Dragons Edition.
What a huge year it was for D&D fans, as Wizards of the Coast had a mammoth amount of releases to celebrate the 45th year of Dungeons & Dragons in 2019. I think I managed to review most of these throughout the year with few exceptions. And in addition to the 45th anniversary of the world’s greatest role playing game, it was also the 5th anniversary of the 5th edition of the game. So lots of celebrations and a veritable goldmine for fans of the game.
If there is a tabletop gamer in your life, I bet you can find a little something for them from this list. Here’s the 2019 Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2019: Dungeons & Dragons Edition.

And husband-wife team Pfeff-Bot and Maximus Prime have had quite a fun time in the process (we might end up buying most of these for ourselves or each other”¦)!
