Hello all, I have a small kid and I am just getting prepared up to make it good on his birthday which is around the corner. He is a book-lover and likes comics with superman being his fav. Now, I donít get enough free time and the gift I had like to get him would be a collection of his fav heroesí comics. There have been some online stores that I had visited but did not find any interesting stuff. Any suggestions to make his present a good one?

Fair warning, this is a board to Sonic comics and cartoons, not general comics.
I don't know much about comic books, but if he likes Sonic the Hedgehog as a game or cartoon, I could suggest that. If he doesn't like Sonic, then you might want to ask try the Random board.
If you wanted general super hero comics in this topic, maybe you could PM a Mod to see if they could move it to Random. I think you might get better answers there seeing how this category is for Sonic comics.

Sonic Archives! That book is awesome!

I agree with wring. If you're looking for some Sonic comics (which I highly recommend as it is the longest running comic to feature a video game character), then the Sonic Archives comics would be your best bet. Most of the archives contain 4 - 20 page comics and cost about $7.50 a piece. The archives are basically reprints of the original story, so that's where I would start him if he's interested. Personally, I would go with this option if you're looking at Sonic the Hedgehog material. I would recommend 4 of the archives as it will give your kid about 320 pages of comics and may get him interested in the series.
Here are some links to Archie Comics where you can purchase them:
Sonic Archives #1: http://archiecomics.stores.yahoo.net/soheavo1.html
Sonic Archives #2: http://archiecomics.stores.yahoo.net/soheavo21.html
Sonic Archives #3: http://archiecomics.stores.yahoo.net/soheavo3.html
Sonic Archives #4: http://archiecomics.stores.yahoo.net/soheavol4.html
Or if you just want to look at general Sonic comics, here's a good place to find them: http://archiecomics.stores.yahoo.net/sonic.html
One other thing, there is a Sonic #0 not included in the archives, it's like a prequel story and acts more like a collectors item than anything, but if you can find it at an affordable price on Ebay or another outlet, I'd pick it up after you find out whether or not your kid is interested in the comics (Here is an ebay search for it: http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=m38.l1313&_nkw=Sonic+the+hedgehog+%230&_sacat=See-All-Categories)
I hope that helps and I hope your kid remains involved in comics, they've always given me enjoyment, and I feel its a dying form of media.

Thatís nice, a comic would be a nice present and when he loves it, it is the best. Online shopping has spread to a wide area and now there are many categories and a wide range of services available for all types pf products that you wish to purchase. For a better range of comics of your selection, you can visit herobits as they have a wide category of to cater to.

Superman isn't exactly kid appropriate these days.
There is a collection of the old kid friendly comics:
Their rather corny, but I wouldn't be surprised if your kid likes them.
Don't touch the modern comics though, or any made in the last 20 years or so. As far as I know, they would be far to violent for a small child.
Now this, I would highly reccomend:
Favorite of mine when I was a kid, and not bad for adults either.
Of course, I feel inclined to also reccomend the newer Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic X comic books. From issue #160 on, Sonic the Hedgehog has turned into a pretty good comic book series, and the Sonic X comics in general can be hilarious, far better then the TV series.
