You'll Need:
Wooden letters (available at local craft or home stores)
Old comic books (that you don't mind cutting up)
Mod Podge
Scissors

How to Make It:
1. Cut the comic book pages into smaller pieces with whatever pictures you'd like to use, making it easier to glue them to the letters.
2. Apply Mod Podge to the letters in sections and carefully smooth the comic book pieces on top. Repeat this until all portions of the letters are covered.
3. After allowing to dry, carefully cut off any excess paper that might be hanging off of the letters.
