Our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide



Some of us here at The Mary Sue own enough art prints to wallpaper a house, and that’s why we’re qualified to tell you what your friends and family might like to look at every day. Here are a few artists with fabulous creations worth framing and, in some cases, wearing!

Hanie Mohd: She’s famous for her DC Ladies in Sweaters series, but she’s also a Womanthology artist and a fabulous addition to Tumblr.

Len Peralta: The artist behind Geek-A-Week trading cards is offering some pretty cool stuff right now. For instance, custom holiday greeting cards. He also has geeky pin-ups, pop-culture illustrations, and a gift certificate option for drawing your loved one!

Noelle Stevenson: You might also known her as Gingerhaze, that girl on Tumblr who creates delightful situations between some of our favorite pop-culture icons, like the cast of The Lord of the Rings or X-Men: First Class. Here’s a secondary shop with more prints.

The Bottleneck Gallery: You can visit in person if you live near Brooklyn, NY or you can do online shopping by exhibit. So far they’ve done zombies and paid cable; we even highlighted their most recent show, “The Gang is All Here.”

Jess Fink : Some cool Day of the Dead offerings, but she also illustrated a Star Trek Jam Band. So, yeah.

Kate Leth: She does comics about comics, she does comics about love and sex, she does comics about tacos. She’s swell. Also check out her Etsy shop.

Litographs: Entire books. On posters. Seriously, how can you resist?

    Was just about to say the same thing! It’s great cookbook and much better than the “unofficial” version.

    I’m trying to come up with a gift for my sister…are any of you expert giftgivers?

    She’s two months shy of eighteen, has previously been a fan of My Sister’s Keeper and Looking For Alaska, and is currently, sigh, into serial killers. I think/hope it’s a phase, but in a similar mood in high school, I liked Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk. However, I grew out of that phase and think she will too, so I’m not sure if I should indulge it or look toward the future. In any case, something less nichy would probably work, but I tend to read within certain confines…so, I’m not sure that my expertise in fandoms such as Discworld would really pan out. Yet I’ve always thought of Picoult as the same kind of industrial commercial writing that King pumps out every year, so I was hoping for something more sophisticated…I’m not thinking of JUST books, but sometimes what a person reads (or if they read) says a lot about their interests…

    Reading back over this, it feels dreadfully desperate for suggestions. Maybe just a gift card?
