Above: In anticipation of the return of Game of Thrones, which by the way is this Sunday, HBO is offering you the chance to design your own House Sigil and “join the realm.” It’s really just a neat editor where you can plug in your name, pick an icon, add a motto, and boom, House Sigil. I made a quick one for the honorable House Lebowski as you can see above. A pretty good time waster for Monday morning, if I do say so myself.

As fun as this balloon dalek is, I can’t help but think it would be way more fun to dress up as the Doctor and follow this person around the con all day, pop a balloon, run away and hide, 10 minutes later pop another balloon, run away and hide, lather, rinse, repeat.

While the flux-capacitor hasn’t been perfected, and we can’t help you fix any past holiday humbuggery, maybe we can help you get this holiday season off to a good start.

For the next 12 days (Dec 1st-12th), the staff of Nerd Bastards will be listing a few of their favorite nerdy things. Gadgets, doohickeys, thingamabobs and more – all sorts of  items that have been Nerd tested and Bastard approved. Basically, stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t have.

We hope you’ll  find some unique and nerdtastic gifts among our selections, and that they make their way under your tree, Menorah or Kwanzaa bush.

Hit the jump for Nick Bungay’s list of Nerdful things. Check back tomorrow for Matthew Jackson‘s list. To see archive of this feature, click HERE.

1. Ultimate Kate or Die #1 by Kate Leth

Tattoos, relationships, lesbians and guinea pigs. What does all of this have to do with comics? Everything, that’s what. This collection of comic strips from Nova Scotia artist Kate Leth is on sale now for a steal at $5 a pop, and it’s well worth the price. Featuring strips on everything from cosplay and tattoo etiquette, to the secret relationship between Spider-Man and Deadpool, it’s 32 pages of fun wrapped up in one neat, shelf fitting package. Although, if you live in the Halifax area, just go over to Strange Adventures Comix & Curiosities, they’re always holding a few issues just in case and you might even meet Kate.
