    I recently purchased two Swamp Thing comics for my collection; Swamp Thing #1 (still on it's way) and Saga of the Swamp Thing #1 and I've decided to create a Swamp Thing display for my toy room. I found these frames at Michael's craft store which are perfect for the job! I've also framed my Swamp Thing #1 from the new reboot just because I thought it would fit nicely with the theme.

    Do any of you have any special displays for your favorite books or characters that go beyond just the normal toys/statues?

    All my comics are stored in boxes. :(  I would love to buy some of those frames, though. A Deadpool display would be pretty sweet. Same goes for my signed issues.

    I've got some in my Transformers cabinet (shitty pictures can be seen in my "gallery" signature link), but the rest of mine are in boxes. I'm actually in the process of organizing everything right now, which is a lot better than having them sitting on my closet shelf next to the stuffed animals.

    I used to have signed books in 11x14 frames with a sketch by the artist of the book. But honestly, it was too much. Now I only have original art framed and displayed.

    Thanks! :)  I've been wanting to add a Swamp Thing toy display to my room for a long time. Once I bought the large art print I knew it was something that I now had to do!

    It came with last year's SDCC DCUC Swamp Thing! I love the figure and the mask was just an extra little bonus!

    According to the bottom of the print, it's by Steve Bissette and John Totleben. It is also supposedly signed by Bernie Wrightson. Since I purchased it for around $40 shipped on eBay, I kind of doubt that part. It looks legit enough, though, and I really am happy with the way it looks after I got it framed!

    I kinda want to do what you've done but I worry about fading or yellowing the paper. Nice display.
