A Few More Holiday Guide Add-Ins, Suggestions

What follows are a few more comics-related holiday gift ideas, that will by the weekend be added to the CR Holiday Shopping Guide 2012. I wish I could have had all of these things in on my first try, but I'd rather give them the spotlight now than to be prideful about last weekend's effort. Please shop carefully: the Santa whose lap you save could be your own.

161. Something From The Last Gasp Annual Warehouse Sale
Just taking me to this thing would be a gift I'd remember. It's also a reminder to check in with your local comics institutions and see if they're doing anything similar in the weeks ahead.

162. A Jaime Hernandez Print To Support The Hernandez Brothers Collection At UTEP
That's a great-looking thing for a fine and vastly under-publicized (by people like me who should know better and try harder) cause.

163. Cruisin' With The Hound: The Life And Times Of Fred Toote
It's too early for a company like Fantagraphics to suggest the purchase of a book from the just-passed underground comics icon Spain Rodriguez, but we're under no such potential profit-motive driven restraint. I liked a lot of Spain's late-period work, and that includes this odd and frequently funny stories of his youthful days in Buffalo. A lot of Spain's best autobiographical work is not in print, which makes buying something like this even more of an imperative I think.
