Comic Book Panel Shelves

Yet another comic book shelf/display, however this is a very simple concept: the end result looks like panels in a comic book page. This is made possible by using shelves with vertical dividers, populated by comic book holders with images on the ‘spines’ to form the panel art. 

X-Men Collection Blu-Ray Stand

X-Men blu-ray collection stand design by Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas

You read that right: this is a stand, not the usual case design I tend to post here. Because there are so many X-Men Blu-Ray/DVD releases (standalone and box sets), I felt I should put together a design to show off the mutant superhero movies you already have.

Revised Map Of California, Thanks To A Criminal Mastermind

Lex Luthor Map Of California

You can purchase a high-res poster of this map here.

Many theorize that the San Andreas Fault disaster could have been averted by that Superman fella, but he disappeared the very day a large chunk of California sunk into the Pacific Ocean. Fortunately a large corporation stepped up to rebuild what remained of the state. The lesson: corporations are the real heroes.

***

If you don’t get the gist I made this map to reflect an alternate reality where Lex Luthor’s scheme (from the first Superman movie, watch the scene here) actually worked. The result is a new California where almost every city is named after the greatest criminal mastermind.

I added a few more cities, decimated a few surviving cities (Fresno and Sacramento), and theorized that a massive barrier reef would form as a result of western California being underwater. Also his plan had called for grabbing a slice of Mexico, which I stayed true to. And yes, I granted Otis his dream city; I imagine Lex would’ve been in a good mood after his plan succeeded to permit Otisburg in the end.

Here are some goodies that you can print out on standard 8.5″ x 11″ letter paper. Click to enlarge, save to your computer, and print as-is (do not re-size). Cut out and insert into DVD case or affix to a comic book cover.

Spider-Man Necklace

This edition of Geek Bling features the friendly neighborhood webhead, who is no stranger to necklaces/chains, but for some reason no one has made the chain itself the web, at least in this obvious a fashion.

The design and pose is based on the 60’s cartoon, which has now been reduced to fodder for internet memes. I have a soft spot for the poorly-animated series, because I feel it was the first ever motion comic (and likely intended as such), not a traditionally animated cartoon.

Nearly had a few of my past Geek Bling designs made, which I would have made available here like I did my hockey jerseys. But alas, can’t seem to find a willing jewelry maker. Hopefully one day I can arrange something for interested people.

Comic Book Mirrors

Comic Book Mirror Decals

The idea of using a magazine cover as a mirror is an old one. Why not a comic book-themed mirror for us geeks?

I am proposing a rectangular mirror that comes with the logo, masthead, and barcode from a comic book cover; essentially turning the mirror into a comic book where you are the hero. OR this could be a set of decals that you can apply to any mirror.

In my opinion this mirror would be a great confidence booster. Think of it: if you are seeing yourself labelled as Superman or Wonder Woman daily, you might subconsciously subscribe to the notion that you are indeed super.

I’m informed that decals used for cars would do the trick, because they are immune to UV light and moisture, making them ideal for the bathroom mirror.
