    Mini comics to display with your MOTUC figures :D



    My miniature mini comics are now available to download! I will post new comics as I continue to build them in Photoshop. See down below for additional instructions to help you make your own books from scratch and to help develop the list of comics that are available for us to share.

    Quick Instructions - Just Download and Print!

    Make certain to adjust your printer settings so the image prints in the center of the page. Once the image is printed, turn the paper over in your printer and print the other side (how you rotate/flip the paper may vary from one printer to the next). Hold the printed paper up to a light to make certain the two sides line up pretty close, and then use a pair of scissors to cut the comic out.
    You may need to do some trimming depending on how well the two sides lined up with each other. Then stack the pages together and fold them, ensuring a nice sharp crease in the middle. Then staple the center of the crease so the staple's ends are bent inward to the center of the inside of the comic. Close the book and trim off any pieces of paper sticking out from the cover of the book. That's all there is to it!

    Advanced Instructions - How to make your own books

    MASTER TEMPLATES (9MB)
    Note: You need Photoshop in order to open and edit this pack of PSD files.

    Last Updated: (3/2/2012)
    1. Gather your images together for each comic book or other book you'd like to miniaturize.
    2. Open "Template_1Page.PSD" and paste the image between into it.
    3. Resize the image of the page, centering it under the border layer.
    4. Copy the page and paste it into "Template_2Pages.PSD".
    5. Follow steps 2-4 for the page next to the one you previously edited.
    6. Copy both pages with the border attached (Ctrl+A, Shift+Ctrl+C) and paste it into "Final.PSD".
    7. Following the example layers provided in Final.PSD, create two layers on top of each other in the center
    of the document. These will be the two sides of the book you are creating.
    NOTE: The trickiest part about making these is knowing which pages go next to each other.
    The order of pages will change depending on how many total pages you include in the book.
    The page order for a 14-page book is listed below. Additional page orders will be included
    in these instructions as they are updated. Please let me know if there are any errors that need
    to be fixed.

    16-page book (needs to be checked)
    SideA 9/6 11/4 13/2 back/cover
    SideB 1/14 3/12 5/10 7/8

    Thank you for the compliments! I've been begging my busy schedule to give me some time to work on these. I'm bumping them up on my priority list, and am cleaning up my files to get going again on them. I had some trouble related to certain comics being X pages versus Y pages but I found a solution. They're small but tricky to design.

    The miniature mini comics are now free to download at the top of this thread. You can simply download and print the images, or help me to develop a larger list of comics to share by downloading the Master Templates file listed above and show off your skills in Photoshop. I'd also encourage people to post pictures of comics they've downloaded and/or made.

    These are really awesome, and I'm glad you made them available for us all to enjoy. I have a request if you don't mind. Could u make a copy of the castle Grayskull play set box in scale with the Grayskull stands. I would like to fold and paste it around them for display. I always thought it would have been cool if Mattel would have released the Grayskull, and new Snake Mountain stands with the original play set box art.

    Thank you for the great compliments!

    I've added two more downloadable mini comics - He-Man & The Power Sword, and Battle in the Clouds! I was also greatly inspired by the amazing new Draego-Man figure and his equally impressive bio! I really feel he deserves his own mini comic, to flesh out his rather original back story.




    "Look well upon this ancient text my minion," commanded Skeletor through a hideous snear. "Remember your
    creator - the Great Black Wizard - and let the remembrance of your dark beginnings bestir your fiery hatred
    for those who discarded you into the Caverns of Rakash centuries ago."

    Okay, now someone NEEDS to make an MOTUC Linkara figure with flaming sword. Because THAT would be hysterical.
