For about a year or so now, adult coloring books have been especially popular. Studies show that they can help you relieve stress. You can express creativity through your color choices and more. Will it last? Based on the Facebook groups I belong to, the number of books available, and my general travels around the Internet, I believe that they are here to stay! Happily, there are many different geeky coloring books for adults.

Mom and I got into the craze and bought some Marco Raffine coloring pencils (affordable but still work great! My set even came with a rolling carrying case) and books. I tend to prefer somewhat simpler pictures myself versus the exquisitely intricate ones. I think I need to add a weekly coloring session to my schedule (at least) to help me destress a bit.

Relax with these geeky coloring books for adults

Geeky Coloring Books for Adults That You NEED


Color Your Own Civil War

I have thoroughly enjoyed the universe that Marvel has created with their Avengers movies and the ones for each associated character. I love that Captain America is front and center, as he should be. Team Cap! Then again, I might be a wee bit biased since I think Chris Evans is pretty darn handsome. There are 59 perforated pages to color in this book.

Color Your Own Deadpool

I am a bit behind and still need to see Deadpool (I know, I know). I just love him and the idea of a wisecracking self-aware character. When you sit down to color one of these pages, don’t forget the chimichangas, tacos or pancakes. This one has 60 pages.

Serenity

Firefly really did end too soon *wipes away a tear*.  They did such an amazing job that wasn’t properly given a chance by Fox. Sigh. Browncoats should get ready to have a shiny time working on one of the 45 pages available.

Star Trek & ST:TNG

If my mother-in-law is reading this…avert your eyes! She is a long time Trekkie and this would be a great present to give to her someday. She prefers the original series. I watched Star Trek: The Next Generation more myself. These coloring books are available for preorder and will be released on December 20, 2016. Both have 45 pictures to work on.
