Fantom Comics' Holiday Picks: The Best of 2013

2013 has been an INCREDIBLE year for comics.

Fantom has great graphic novel gift ideas for the holidays!


One of comics' greatest storytellers, Paul Pope brings you Battling Boy GN, a brilliant and kinetic take on the hero's journey that practically dares ALL that enter its world not to become a comics fan.

A 13 year old boy is thrown from the heavens armed with little more than heritage, an invisible credit card, a traveling cloak, gauntlets and twelve t-shirts that imbue him with the strength, cunning and prowess of the creatures of earth and legend. With these things, a young god boy must find what he's made of in a world of monsters and men.

The Four Horsemen roam The Earth, ready to lay waste to all that is.

Death has gone missing, pursuing a mission of his own. Death has gone on to reclaim the one thing he can't live without: his only love, Xiaolian.

To quote series writer Jonathan Hickman (Avengers), "She is Xiaolian. And you should fear her as much as you fear (Death). For this is the woman who conquered (him)."

Congressional Medal of Freedom recipient & civil rights champion Congressman John Lewis brings his incredible story to the medium of comics.

John Lewis with co-writer Andrew Aydin (A Fantom customer) and artist Nate Powell, chronicle his journey from son of a sharecropper, to a young man ready to change history marching with Dr. Martin Luther King and beyond.

MARCH isn't just one man's story; it's a story of change and growth. 

MARCH is truly America's story.

From writer Brian K. Vaughan, the mind that brought you Vertigo Comics' Y: The Last Man, comes SAGA, an all-new series guaranteed to capture your mind.

Two soldiers on opposite sides of a universal conflict manage to fall in love and get swept into webs of intrigue, scandal, political and racial strife; all while trying to raise a baby.

Gorgeously illustrated by Fiona Staples, SAGA is a sci-fi/fantasy successfully blending elements of Star Wars, Game of Thrones and miraculously, television's How I Met Your Mother.

Purchase any of these in-store and we'll be glad to gift wrap them for you, free of charge!
