Custom Vintage Marvel Star Wars #3 Decoupage Comic Storage Short Box by Kracalactaka

This is a new short box decoupaged with an old beater cover-less copy of Marvel Star Wars #3 from 1977. There was not quite enough of the book to cover the whole box so I scanned the complete copy from my collection to get a cover image and another couple of pages worth of panels. This would be the perfect box for storing a complete run of vintage Marvel Star Wars comics. It will be going up on evilbay on March 6, 2020

This issue has the panels featuring the famous "TK-421, why aren't you at your post?" scene. And less important scenes like Artoo & Chewie playing "battle chess", Ben training Luke with the lightsaber, the destruction of Alderaan & rescuing Leia from the cell block. Lots of action and even after 40 years these Howard Chakin panels pop!

Note, March 11, 2020: Congrats to Derek in Wisconsin, who won this great item on ebay.

Thanks for looking!

Vintage Marvel Comics Decoupage Custom Art Portfolio/Case & "Red" Sonja Short Box by Kracalactaka!

So I found this old box at work that was used to transport some poster boards or some such a few years back. I quickly assessed that my son (a print maker & visual arts major in his senior year of college) could use it as a portfolio for transporting his larger pieces. Naturally we decided it needed to be decoupaged. I went with some old beat up Marvel books, some of which did not even have covers.
A Thor, What If?, 2 Captain America & Falcon, a Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man, a Man-Thing, a Howard The Duck, a Power Man & Iron fist, a Luke Cage Hero for Hire and a Conan provided the fodder. I also added some embellishments to the front featuring other classic Marvel characters and teams. Everything was from the 1970's to early 1980's era (with one small exception).
