Valentine's Day Gift Guide: 6 Perfect Presents For The Comic Nerds

It’s never too early to start shopping for Valentine’s Day. Here at Vulcan Post, we’ll be spewing up some gift suggestions to better prepare you for the month of love. P.S.- This concerns singletons, as well. Just because you don’t have a romantic interest doesn’t mean you can’t hunt for gifts for your mates to show appreciation!

To kick off the V-Day theme gift guide series, here are six ideas specially curated for your geeky friends.

Upcoming blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is slated for release in 2016; naturally it seems fitting enough to include this formidable poster. Your apartment is about to become a lot more cooler.

“He may have failed to conquer Midgard, but he conquered the fangirls instead,” writes a Buzzfeed user. Ask any Marvel fan, and he/she will tell you that Loki is way more badass than Thor. (In case you’ve missed it, even Thor himself admits it.) Also, this is a must-have if your love is unable to do anything except obsessing over Tom Hilddleston.
