The comic book industry dates back to the 1930s where it has started as a pastime for the nerd culture. Thru the decades and years, it has evolved to become a culture of its own, with more and more people turning into enthusiasts. Today, the comic culture has become mainstream – more comic characters, more aggressive marketing strategies, readily available merchandise, and a growing diverse fanbase from the young ones to the older generation.
The influence of comic culture has become a lifestyle rather than just a hobby or pastime. Now, even interior designs in homes and pads feature various comic book theme arts and decors. If you’re one of the many comic book enthusiasts and looking to decorate or renovate your home with your favorite comic characters and stories, here are some awesome ideas to get you inspired:
