So I have a baby on the way and was setting up the room and I was trying to figure what I was going to do with the walls. My wife came up with the idea to put up comic books on the wall because I like superheroes. So the first thing I did was do a Google search for, “comic book frames” and the first item that came up was, “Ikea Comic Book Photo Frame Hack | Youseph Tanha“. It detailed how Youseph used $1.99 frames from Ikea to add his comic books to his wall and it made a great look. I kept reading and he would put up updates on his readers using his idea. There was one update from Brilliantly Easy blog that said that Dollar Tree has $1 frames that they used to accomplish the same concept. This was perfect because I have a Dollar Tree and I went and found these, “Black Plastic Photo & Document Frames, 8½x11” and bought 20 of them for my project. All in all I am satisfied how my comic book frame wall came out and thank the wifey, websites and authors for the inspiration.
Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight aka Gallery 1988 LA aka G88 and Golden Apple Comics present: Under The Influence: A Tribute To Stan Lee starting January 8, 2008 through February 1, 2008. I was put on to this by the one and only Detrimental and would have loved to see this. You might remember G88 mentioned here before about their artistic take on 8-bit video games. This time they honor the legendary Stan Lee who has created numerous super heroes and super villains to blockbuster movies that many have grown up on. The artwork above is by artist Tessar Lo and is done with “mixed media on stonehenge, mounted on wood. approx. 22 x 29″. There is alot more to see at the Stan Lee Tribute Artwork website and the actual gallery itself. The some of the artwork can also be purchase so if you are in the area then this is definitely one not to miss.

Alright so it isn’t hidden surprise that much but you can miss if you are not looking for it on the Stones Throw’s Soul-Cal Records website. Cedric! Soulful Comix is a nice black and white comic that will enlighten you to how Cedric the Entertainer obtained his Soul-Cal shirt that he wore at the Nickelodeon’s 19th Annual Kid’s Choice Awards. To advance through the story you have to click on the comic and at the end you will be given the article that inspired the funny comic.
I was at the Facepunch Studios forums and found these hilarous comics that use Counter-Strike: Source models. The creator name is RileyB in the forums so I emailed and asked his permission to publish his comics on my sight. Riley B gave the green light and so we have the first of RileyB Comics presents “A Battlefield 2 Story”. Enjoy…
