The O.C DIY: Seth's Harbor School Comic Book League Printable Poster!

We present to you a rare DIY printable version of Seth's Harbor School Comic Book League flyer! These flyers were posted all over Harbor School in an attempt to attract comic book lovers into Seth's two man ensemble, Ryan (forcibly joined) and Seth (wholeheartedly). We presume that seeing the flyers is how Zach Stevens heard about the league! Let's face it, Seth was all about getting another picture in the yearbook!

"Hey guys. Comic Book League. Check it out. We're gonna to be getting into the issues. The stuff that matters. You know what I mean? Check it out. Today's topic: capes. Gay, or kinda cool?" -Seth

The design of this poster obviously took inspiration from the "I want you" Uncle Sam military recruitment poster drawn by James Montgomery Flagg in 1914-1918. 

Artist Eric Wight

Seth's version features a drawling of himself (naturally). It's a pretty sweet depiction which was actually drawn up by Eric Wight! Eric did all of the illustrations throughout the show including Atomic County! He is an excellent artist! 

DIY Instructions:
  1. Save the top black and white document on your computer
  2. Print document 
  3. Proceed to post document where-ever you see fit (don't litter)
  4. For extra credit print it on hot pink or orange paper for an authentic look as you see above! Ryan's head not included!
  5. Having problems getting it to print the full page? Follow these instructions here!

The O.C. DIY.: Printable Anna Stern Comic Book Given to Seth!

What lies in this folder is amazing....

Hint: its a gift from Anna...

Here we have a copied scan of the exact comic book prop that Anna Stern gave Seth for Chrismukkah. How'd we find this you ask? The CW Seed released a Snapchat video of the front and back of this prop months ago but it was on their page for less than 24 hours, how dare they! Because we love our fans we took their crummy video and after much tweaking turned it into two images. We believe everyone should have some sort of piece from the show! Look below for a printer ready version that you can hang up in your room and or add to your ever-growing O.C. shrine! We guarantee you will be one of the only people with this baby in your house! This comic features Seth Cohen, Captain Oats and a random sock monkey. Thanks Anna.

DIY Instructions:

  1. Save the above image to your desktop!
  2. Print it out! Color is preferred), if you print in blank in white you could perhaps color it yourself using colored pencils. 
  3. Fold it on the crease line!
  4. Frame it OR...
  5. Extra credit, fold about 6 blank pages in the middle to make it look more like the real deal. Put 2 staples at the fold line. If you need help stapling using a small stapler follow this guide.
  6. Press it between a book for a half hour and wallah! 
  7. Having problems getting it to print on a full page? Follow instructions here!
The finished product in all it's glory

Reddit user and O.C. super-fan: Unstable617 has posted this comic on their wall!
