Just discovered this guy on FB. May see what he can do
https://www.facebook.com/CustomComicDisplays/

I guess what I was really asking for was some "inspiration". Maybe some people here have custom framed some comics
Ive been wanting to do the same. those are a little over the top for what I have in mind, even though they are sort of cool, but they are a good base to start thinking about how I'd want them displayed.

Just started chatting with the guy the last hour. I don't want do anything over the top like some of those. But his prices are very reasonable IMO. Only downside is his turnaround time

60-90 days. This is his side gig and he hand makes everything. But a custom one with a logo and everything is $50-60

that's a pretty great price . . . I was just reading his method for making these, pretty neat.

3 months for one those is a wait.

Picked up Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire's A.D. After Death and am really enjoying it. Looking forward to Book Three. I love Lemire's style of artwork.

Noticed a few not so subtle references to Darwyn Cooke.
