Yeah, my friend's room was deep purple and his older brother's room was dark blue with contrasting trim, which inspired me to paint my room a deep blue with orange/red trim and add a black light with some neat posters. I also painted Jeff Jones' Dragon from To Slay a Dragon! in india ink & black light chalk pastels on my wall. :)

I've always wondered how easy it was for the next owners of our house to repaint my room without that damn dragon bleeding through. :eek:

Oh man, these things are beautiful. I really think joining these boards was probably a bad choice in terms of my pocket book...

 

How much did these go for back in the day? I see that you can get one now for about 500 bucks, but do they sell often there?

I think they cost something like $3.

That one is a new poster done in the style of a Third Eye poster.

 

This one is in my kitchen.

A buddy gave me several posters from the 70’s for helping him out.  I’m keeping these two.  I’d like to know if it’s possible to restore the posters, or what is the best way to display them.

Somewhere I have the Kirby Black Bolt and the Colan Iron Man. They're pretty beat up as I recall, but I'm sure I got them for a buck or less many moons ago. Now I want to display them.  :cloud9:

The posters measure 21" X 33."  There's a standard poster frame size of 22.375" X 34" at craft stores that fits them nicely. Just a little bit bigger than the poster but a lot cheaper than going custom.

I've been looking for a Black Bolt to go with my Medusa above with no luck. Came across an auction on the Hulk/Psyklop in excellent shape with very low bids, so I made a pretty low bid on it not really expecting to win it, and low & behold I won it. Got it in, and the condition was even better than I imagined. Rolled it back up and put it back in the tube until I can get the two in custom frames. (Picture for illustration).

That's a good one. Dr. Strange seems perfect for Black Light posters!
