That is so much cooler than my comic-gami!

Did you follow any particular technique/tutorial, or was this just something you were awesome about and winged yourself?

Yes, I agree that this project was very well done. I am also wondering what kind of camera you used to take the picture of it. I like the depth of field in the first picture.

These are so neat! A great use of old comics. I'd wear that belt any day.

Hot! Might make one with the comics we get at work and usually throw away.

For those in need of a tutorial, it looks like it was done like the Monopoly belt.

That's awesome! It'd be pretty blasphemous for me to cut a comic book up though... hmmm. But I could care less about manga, I should do that. Mwuhahahaha. (just kidding manga fans... sort of.)
