I started to frame and hang up some of the comics in my collection and it got me thinking...what are some other great works of art that should be mounted so others can bask in their glory? I posted a few of my person favorites

Well, as far as iconic storylines go, I'd love a framed cover for Kraven's Last Hunt.

And then there's just the work done by notable and talented cover artists, like James Jean and Phil Noto. Any of their stuff is pretty to look at.

And that's not even digging into iconic manga like Akira or Pluto, a favorite of mine.

Hulk Annual 1, or really anything else Jim Steranko has ever done. Hulk Annual 1 is just an iconic cover, though... like, it's been homaged to so many times.

I'm quite fond of this Action Comics backissue I picked up solely because of the cover. Maybe eventually I'll buy the acclaimed graphic novel containing the story.

I also would want to put up anything by Chris Bachaclo, in particular Amazing Spider-Man 555:

I have the Action Comics #5 variant on my wall. Not because the issue was particularly good, or because it's a particularly good cover, but because Krypto's on it :)

@dabee: I bet it does. I've been trying to win one of these on eBay for about a month now, but keep getting outbid at the last second. May go the poster route instead. With my luck, that will be just as hard to find. Lol!

@kilomac29: Yeah, I know those old ASMs are really hard to collect. I only have them because my dad has been collecting since the 60s. Good luck on getting a hold of one, you will soon enough!
