Mother’s Day Gift Ideas From DC Entertainment


DC Entertainment gives us some great gift ideas to spruce up Mother’s Day.

Let’s face it, the jobs that mothers do are pretty much on par with our favorite superheroes: making school lunches at a moment’s notice; arriving faster than a speeding bullet to pick you up from wherever; quickly bandaging up those scrapes and bruises when you fail at flying like Superman; and showing superhuman feats of strength if a car falls on you.

Okay, hopefully, that last one never happened and never will happen to you … but it did happen to someone else. And that person is probably super (pun intended) grateful that Mom was there. What’s my point? Moms, like your favorite superheroes, are always there when you need them … even when you don’t know you need them. Hmm, telepathy? Okay, add that to a mother’s list of amazing abilities.

So this Mother’s Day, when she gets bored of receiving all those mundane flowers and cards, show her that you can also read her mind and know what she needs — some exciting gifts that will brighten her day. DC Entertainment has a whole slew of gift ideas for the person who always awarded your best macaroni art with a spot on the fridge. The company’s collection of statues and graphic novels are sure to make any mom happy … even if she tells you that seeing you is all that matters. Show her that you worship her just like the comic characters you love with these items:

But when Snow White’s party-girl sister, Rose Red, is apparently murdered, it is up to Bigby, Fabletown’s sheriff, and a reformed and pardoned Big Bad Wolf, to determine if the culprit is Bluebeard, Rose’s ex-lover and notorious wife killer, or Jack, her current live-in boyfriend and former beanstalk-climber.

Gwen sets out to fulfill the dead person’s last request, solve a crime or right a wrong.
