My Comic Book Crisis

A woman of a certain age, a computer, and a love of comics

Being something of a geek mom means I get pretty non-traditional gifts from my family.  At Christmas, among other things, I got a Green Lantern ornament from my husband and a glow-in-the-dark Green Lantern T-shirt from my son. For my anniversary, my husband gave me gift certificates to the comic book store.

Mothers Day was no different. Last night we all went to see Iron Man 2 in IMAX to celebrate, and yesterday, on our weekly trip to the comic book store, my son bought Brightest Day and gave me the white power ring for my collection. Nothing says “Mom” quite like a power ring, no?

But my big gift was something my husband and son saw at an auction and knew would be perfect for Mothers Day. Here it is in all its awesomeness:

Headlights Batman wall sculpture

Holy light-up effigy, Batman!

Does my family love me, or what?

It is a numbered Headlights Wall Sculpture from 1992 and I think it’s the coolest thing ever. Now I just have to decide where to put it. I’m thinking it would look perfect in my new office, but maybe that’s a little over the top. What do you think?
