Here is a short video of another 3D I originally made in 1983, Moon Knight #27 (cover by Frank Miller & Terry Austin) simply because I liked the cover by Frank Miller and Terry Austin. It has been in my personal collection ever since.

For those of you following my 3D shadowbox artwork, I recently did a non-comic related one of The Jive Aces band from UK.  Played here Sunday night at the Cicada Club in LA and I presented it to them.

Back circa 1982 when this book came out, I made this 3D shadowbox of the wraparound cover for writer/artist Walt Simonson. He recently took this new photo of the 3D for posting on my fan page. As you can see it has stood the test of time having taken good care of it!

I recently restored an old 3D of Action Comics #437 (1974) using scan prints on the top few layers to enhance the 3D work.

Circa 1979-80, I made a 3D Shadowbox of Daredevil #158 (published by Marvel Comics in May 1979) simply because I liked the cover by Frank Miller & Josef Rubinstein. Little did I know it would be the landmark first appearance of the legendary Frank Miller on the book and increase in value.

This issue was the last chapter in an ongoing story written by Roger McKenzie who did a fine job with the series. Later on when Denny O'Neil became editor of the book, Miller would start writing and penciling the series with issue #168.

Anyway, I have kept this shadowbox in my personal collection occasionally having it on display in a local comic book store or SDCC. Otherwise it has been in storage. 
Over the years, the red coloring had gotten badly sun faded from the store display and in my home. 

With my return to doing 3D Shadowbox work, I recently restored the 3D in preparation to my recent Long Beach Comic Con display booth where it attracted a lot of attention. At least one person on Instagram, batfan_forever, posted a photo there to his friend daredevil_born_again which a number of people saw.

This video shows the restored 3D along side the original book cover and a scan print like that used in the restoration.

Given that the book is priced on ebay ranging from $30 to around $500, I've no idea what the value of this 3D might be worth.

Over the past weekend I was a Guest Exhibitor with my 3D Shadowboxes at the Long Beach (CA) Comic Con. Here are some photos from my Facebook fan page

And now the new photo album of the Wonder Woman #7 3D Shadowbox sans frame originally made in 1987. Currently putting new non-reflective UV protective glass in the frame in preparation for the upcoming LBCC exhibit.
