DC Superheroes Custom Clock

These are shots of a custom-made clock, sent in by our newest F.O.A.M. member, known online as Saranga!

Saranga told me the clock is about 3-feet high, for sale in a Norwhich craft market. made up entirely of comic book panels clipped from various DC comics. She remarked: "
At 65 pounds and with Christmas coming up I couldn't afford to buy it, but I do think it is immensely cool. Particularly as I could never bring myself to cut up comics that way!"

As you can see, Aquaman appears in several places, so maybe the industrious clockmaker is a fan. Or, since the clock looks like its made up mostly from the same couple of comics, maybe its just result of that.

In any case, its a pretty cool piece--thanks Saranga, and welcome to F.O.A.M.!

Interesting. Why so large, though?

I kind of cringe when I see this because I imagine comics being cut up to adorn the clock. That's something I would never do.
