My Comic Box

Hey fellow Cybertronians. Check this out!

I collect comics, as many of us do. I mostly collect (about 95.24%) Transformers comics. I love them. A few months ago, I bought a comic long box along with a bunch of issues I bought at the same time. Here I was thinking "Finally. Finally a box that I can store and display my comics in." (I had been using a croissant food box as a comic box). Yet, once I had it, it didn't feel complete. Something was missing, and so I decided to do this:

Firstly I had my long box:

Then I got my glue. I didn't want to use school glue or a household glue. I wanted something that I knew was going to be strong and will last a very long time. So I got this, and sorry it is sideways. I'm not sure how to change that:

Next, I should mention that I love the IDW G1 Continuity so much. I have so many issues from the comic series and it accounts for a huge bulk of my comic collection (I want to say about 65%). I own a lot, but that I will talk about in a new thread soon. So what I decided to do was to get pictures of the big characters, places, artifacts and ships of the comic series. So, ya:

After hours of cutting and laying out, I then went to gluing.

I had a blast doing this and would definitely do it again. I probably will actually, when I get another box.

The final result, take a look: https://youtu.be/HPmM0UwDX8o



Thanks for checking it out!

Re: My Comic Box

Nice I like how you decorated your box.


Did you cut up your extra/duplicate comics to do this?

Hey Watari. Thanks a lot.

I didn't use duplicate comics actually. I didn't want to take them apart so I googled all of the images and printed them out.

Kool I see.


Didn't even notice that they were printed off a printer the quality looks pretty good. A lot of ink were used to accomplish this huh?

Yup. Lots of ink. Well worth it though.
