Here's my first foray into the world of LEGO comics combining one of my favorite TV shows with one of my favorite movies. I made minifigs of Mike and Frank and then got the crazy idea of them picking Watto's junk shop and thus this comic was born. The pics below have been reduced in size which has made the dialog balloons a bit fuzzy, but check the link at the end for clearer pics. Enjoy!

I've never watched American Pickers, but this is pretty funny. The photography is good too. What program did you put the comic together with? Well, now to go read the rest of the series. Great comic!

Thanks everyone! I'm still trying to work up the energy to finish the series (out in the larger junkyard).

I went real simple when putting the comic together. I just created dialog balloons (and other text effects) in PowerPoint and pasted them into the images in Paint and saved them as new image files.

This is great. I watch the show all the time, and they even visited my friends house as he collects old signs and motorbikes. I was told they were great guys.

This is a great representation and too funny.  :laugh:
