Whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah or Festivus with the rest of us this year, there's no doubt that holiday season is just around the corner. As such, it's time to start thinking seriously about what presents you're going to get for your loved ones -- or, if you're me, what presents you're going to con them into getting for you!
There's no shortage of excellent comic book related gear to choose from stores this year, but in terms of sheer affordability and adorability, it's hard to beat Australian cartoonist Jessica McLeod's offerings over at her Etsy store
. McLeod is the writer-illustrator behind Top Shelf titles such as "Mungo Bean
" and "Working Class Elf
," both of which are represented in her wave of gift packs being sold on Etsy.
McLeod's "Mungo Bean" gift pack includes a hand-made plushie version of Queen Hattie while her "Working Class Elf" pack showcases Pinn, with both packs including signed comic books, pins and customized gift bags - all for only $18 a pack.
Like I said, folks - adorable and affordable. There might not be two more beautiful words in the English language.
Except for splendiferous. That's a more beautiful word.
