Forbidden Planet Customer Reviews
My boyfriend is a huge comic book fan. I dabble myself, but I don't come anywhere close. Sadly our local comic book store went out of business, so I went looking elsewhere for comic book gifts for birthdays and Christmasses. I found Forbidden Planet after visiting a store in London, and while I think that it's a little pricey, I can't fault the range of memorabilia and merchandise it stocks. I found graphic novels I knew he wanted and the package arrived on time and in perfect condition. I even got him an action figure of Wonder Woman as a bit of a joke - he totally loved it!
The sheer volume of stock on the website means that it can be a bit baffling when you log on, but once you narrow your search you're sure to find what you want and lots more!
My daughter loves Simons cat videos so I found a Simons Cat plush - perfect! I wasn't looking for it, as I came to buy my nephew some comic books for his birthday. But when you see something unique you've got to buy it, as I always say, or you'll regret it later. The site was chocked full of comic-y goodness and graphic novels, etc. Not my thing, but then again I'm in my 40s and a woman so I'm probably not the demographic. Found everything I needed for his gift, checked out swiftly and was on my way. That's what I call successful shopping.
Forbidden Planet is my favourite comic book/super hero store on the internet. They have so much stuff and so much of it is so specific to certain series that are difficult to find elsewhere. Though I use the site mainly to get merchandise as it's a bit pricey for books and I can get them cheaper elsewhere, Forbidden Planet is really a great resource for all enthusiasts of anything from Star Wars, to Game of Thrones, to more traditional superheros, to video game merchandise. I often use the site to buy for myself but I use it to buy gifts too. The shipping is always pretty quick and I've never had any problem with the service. Aside from the stuff they are selling, they also have a lot of other elements to the site which are pretty interesting for fans of graphic novels and the like. I read their blog religiously and have found out about some really interesting new releases and events from it. I seriously recommend Forbidden Planet!
