Marvel Comics' Digital Comics Unlimited, $49.99 for 12 months, marvel.com/digitalcomics

What it is: This virtual initiative by the folks who bring you Spider-Man and the X-Men offers up access to over 5,000 comics via the Web. You'll get choices from recent releases like "Invincible Iron Man," back-catalogue classics like "The Infinity War" or online exclusives like "Spectacular Spider-Girl."<br /><br /><br>
<br>
Why they'll want it: Take it from me, comics take up lots of space. But Marvel's DCU means you don't have to give up your superhero addiction to clear out space for a yoga nook. It also features rare comics from the '40s and '50s that would cost a fortune for the physical versions. So, you're saving square footage and money.<br /><br /><br>
<br>
Another option: If your favorite fanboy or fangirl wants their paperless comics on the go, the Comixology Comics app ($0.99) on iTunes lets them download full issues of great titles like "Irredeemable" and "The Unknown," and cues up loads of free comics to boot.
