Puzzled Comics are outrageously original, utterly unique and absolutely authentic!

I create Puzzled Comics; wooden jigsaw puzzles crafted using real comic book covers. That's right—it’s a real comic cover…the image on the puzzle isn’t a reproduction, it’s the actual cover of a comic book. It gets even better: the leftover comic book is shipped with the puzzle as proof of authenticity.

I only create puzzles using affordable comic books. I’d never cut up a highly-graded collectible issue. I choose covers solely based on their graphic appeal and color contrast. Puzzle prices vary according to the number of puzzle pieces and the uniqueness of the cut; the collectibility of a comic has no bearing on the price.

The cover is trimmed, flattened and thoroughly cleaned. It’s then laminated and carefully mounted onto a composite wood panel using permanent archival adhesive. The mounted comic cover is laser-cut using exclusive puzzle patterns which I design, featuring fully-interlocking matrixes with unique joinery.

I regularly randomize the puzzle matrix to ensure each puzzle receives a unique pattern. Available matrixes range from old-fashioned grids to more-challenging diagonal patterns, and spiral puzzles you’ve possibly never seen before. I often add effects to the matrixes, such as bubbles, pinches or waves, to enhance the puzzle and make the assembly more challenging.

The assembled puzzle is secured in a custom cardboard frame and, along with the original comic, is shipped to you in tailor-made packaging. It arrives ready to enjoy or gift to someone incredibly lucky.

I have a growing selection of puzzles with comic covers for all tastes and ages. I’ll also be regularly attending craft fairs all over the California Bay Area. Scroll down to see if I'll be at a fair near you. I hope to see you there!

Thanks for checking out my shop...
