Stephanie and her husband Jonathan are huge fans of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes. When the two got engaged and married in 2011 and 2012, respectively, they decided to use the comic as their theme for both their engagement photo shoot and their wedding. To capture the images, they recruited San Francisco-based photographer Junshien of Junshien International.
You’ve all seen multi-photo picture frames before, but the “Comic Strip Picture Frame” goes a step further by providing 45 speech bubble stickers (and a pen) that allow you to turn the frame into a comic strip. You can buy one for $18 over on Perpetual Kid — or you can just take this idea and create your own speech/thought bubbles.

It’s a tough job market in New York, and even Spider-Man has difficulty finding job security these days.
In this month’s issues #623 and #624 of Marvel’s Amazing Spider-Man comic, Peter Parker loses his job as the photographer for the mayor — former Daily Bugle EIC J. Jonah Jameson.
According to Marvel, Petey has to make a troubling decision between freedom of press or withholding certain information from the media in order to protect a friend, but his decision costs him his job.
Peter Parker has always been a bit of an everyman, often beset with real problems in a real city, on top of the occasional super villain encounter. Parker has had to deal with marital problems, finding freelance gigs, and dealing with the deaths of loved ones.
And now he faces every photog’s worst fear: having a smeared reputation. On top of being able to afford to web-sling through the city, let alone keep an apartment, he now has the daunting task of trying to find a job. Yikes.
This guy just can’t catch a break!
