The Picks:

Sonic The Hedgehog Mega Man Worlds Collide Volume 1 TP – One of the biggest crossovers of the year is finally collected into a trade. The historic meeting of two of video games’ biggest icons is collected in this first volume. Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man clash in a meeting that, while it is their first time, could also be their last, considering how hard they’re fighting each other. All the while, their two evil counterparts, doctors Eggman and Wily, watch, loving every minute of it! This crossover spanned three different titles, so this collection is the best way to get the full story without trying to keep track of which series had which part. This is a great addition for Sonic and Megaman collections and would fit in perfectly with any all ages/graphic collection.

Adventure Time Sugary Shorts Volume 1 HC – Make the holidays an Adventure Time with this new deluxe hardcover from BOOM! Studios. The Adventure Time comics have featured lots of great short stories, and this volume collects them for the first time. Featuring works from the comic industry’s top independent talent, this book has stories with all your favorite characters from the Land of Ooo, including Finn the Human, Jake the Dog, Princess Bubblegum, Marceline the Vampire Queen, Lumpy Space Princess, Ice King, Peppermint Butler, and many, many more. This volume collects the short stories from Adventure Time issues 1-14. It’s the perfect gift for an Adventure Time fan to find under the tree!
