Game of Thrones Shot Glass Set: Stark, Baratheon, Targaryen, and Lannister

Sold by Dark Horse Comics
Ah, Game of Thrones — do you remember when it was the best show that ever graced television? Layered, dark, mysterious, and rich with depth and important characters and the purveyor of shows that had characters who did, in fact, drink and know things? Yeah, so do we! This four-pack of shot glasses come with the emblems of House Stark, Baratheon, Targaryen, and Lannister.

Game of Thrones Ceramic Stein: Stark Sigil

Sold by Dark Horse Comics
Ah, a Game of Thrones offering fit for a nobleman, noblewoman, or anyone who wants to throw back their ale with fandom pride. Featuring the direwolf sigil of House Stark (complete with the 'Winter is Coming' motto), this ceramic mug will hold as much liquid as you require to fight a White Walker. Undead beings and terror not included, but may come with a side order of honor.

Game of Thrones Coffee Mug: Stark Sculpted Wolf

Sold by Dark Horse Comics
Winter is Coming, and with it, the need for a hot drink. Fill your Stark mug with the beverage of your choice and by the end of your libation, a familiar creature will reveal itself. A few more sips and you will see a sculpted version of the Stark house sigil: a stately gray direwolf, teeth bared, ready to defend your honor (or at least your spiced apple cider)! This 12-ounce mug complete with direwolf inside is ready to make its home with you while you enjoy a beverage under the Godswood tree!

Game of Thrones Pint Glass Set: Stark and Baratheon

Picture it — you’re siting around a large, wooden, circular table surrounded by friends and a sprawling tabletop game. The drinks are flowing, the game is rowdy, and you pour your next icy brew into a frosty cold Game of Thrones pint glass. Well, lucky for you, this set comes with two — a drink for you and your rival’s brew! The ale flows like wine as sweet as Joffrey’s during the Purple Wedding and you can feel like a king when you choose Stark or Baratheon to house your lovely libation. Each pint glass holds 16 ounces and comes in slick-looking window boxes.

Cyberpunk 2077: Silverhand Mug

Sold by Dark Horse Comics
Sing it with me now (because that’s what you do after too many drinks, right?) 'I want to beeeee Anarchy!' There, now that we got that out of our system, we can discuss this punk rock metal robot hand throwing the horns. Take that morning coffee, we’re spiking it with something that’s got a little more lightning on it! This 11-ounce mug features the Johnny Silverhand emblem and the text 'Wake the f*** up, Samurai. We have a city to burn' on the inside of the mug.

Plus, there are enough glasses in the set for you and your buds to drink together! Or enough glasses in the set for you to put the extras in the freezer and always have a frosty pint glass ready to go. They feature logos of your favorite songs from the band Samurai and infamous rockerboy/lead vocalist Johnny Silverhand: 'Never Fade Away' and 'Chippin' In.' Each pint glass set features two glasses packaged in collector-friendly window boxes.

The B.P.R.D. is busy, but you'll be ready for any mission with your flask at your side.

Hellboy Coaster Set

Sold by Dark Horse Comics
The only thing more monstrous than Hellboy would be having that water-logged damp ring around the soggy bottom of your beverage cup damage someone’s table. Have some class with your glass and give some love to what are probably the most intricate comic book-inspired coasters the world has ever seen. This set of four coasters is cork-backed to protect your table and features unique, full-colored illustrations from Mike Mignola's classic art style.

It’s time to up the ante and take it into big-kid tiki-collecting land. Because if you’re not familiar with Mondo and its turbo pop culture boozy drink containment vessel offerings, you’re about to learn some awesomeness right now. We just adore the midnight blue color of this three-set of Gremlins Tiki Mug stackers. They are handmade, which means no two sets are ever quite the same, and filled with 'drink, drink more, but don’t eat after midnight' splendor. And remember, rules are made to be broken. Each mini-mug holds approximately 8 ounces of drink and represents a different Mogwai with a rule-rune on the back: Gizmo with water, Stripe with bright light, and Hungry Mogwai with feeding after 12AM.
