What if I want to hang out in the waiting room reading comics while my (four-legged) child talks to you?

That's fine. You can even take a comic home if you want :)

Taking care of the rust absolutely makes sense, as that could continue to spread. My previous comments were specifically in regard to touching up any of the actual paint, sorta like doing restoration/color touch on a comic. But yeah, for sure, you don't want the thing to dissolve before your eyes. Can't wait to see it once it's all done!

Well, I got the top piece off. After taking the bracket off that was on that piece, there's hope in restoring some of the color.

Finally got my books moved into their new boxes and home.  It's not a lot of real estate, but it works really well for my set up and keeps them close to me at all times :headbang:

I like the all black! Maybe it's only the pics, but it looks like it's hidden ...

Or at least non-descript.. enough that maybe whoever isn't supposed to notice it wont..

Lol I don't know what I'm saying lol

Looks great!

Very nice setup! I'm also using black wire racks with the BCW bins. The all black works well in any room, and it's not entirely obvious you're storing comics (well at least to a non-collector).

After posting the above photos I decided to hang the two remaining items that were in the closet.

Still have not figured out how I am going to display the loose figures.

There is a story about the Spider-Man painting, that was painted freehand on a canvas by an old friend, I came home from work one day back in 98 and the painting was sitting outside my door with a note that read...

"I am leaving town and cannot take this with me and you are the only person I know that would appreciate it as much as I do".

Painting title, date and artist are written on the frame in the back.

That looks like how they store their comics on the Death Star.

I love it!

The last time I saw a clock made out of that poster was at beachhead comics, about thirty years ago

I really do not have that much info on it, it was given to me for Christmas back in 91/92, I have no idea where it was even purchased.

There are no markings anywhere on it that would indicate anything about it.

When I moved and took new pics and made a new/up to date list for the insurance company I tried a Google search to get an idea of date or any info and was not able to find out anything about it.

Marvel Legends Todd McFarlane Spider-Man Vol. 2: Todd McFarlane Paperback – July 7, 2003

This is where it appears to have come from but I like that yours is a clock too.

I saw this before, it's a clock made out of a poster, the poster is laminated to 1/4" foam board, it's cut with a scroll saw to the desired shape, a clock kit is fastened and they are finished with some type of acrylic clear coat ( like the stuff they put on bar tops) I have one made out of a different poster. I got mine at a local comic shop in 1990

I found a few of my old comic book record sets. I think I used to listen to them on a small suitcase type record player. But I've heard those are bad for records. Still I'm thinking about setting something up as I used to listen to those records a lot.
