Comic Book Necklace Pendant DIY

My family and I visit Half Price Books all the time, However I *just* found the star trek comic book section! (I don't know how I missed this before! I love comic books) and, being the geek I am I grabbed a couple of star trek comics-  to read AND to craft with!
So Here's one project I did with them, (You will probably see a couple more)  Comic book necklaces!
You could of course do these with a comic other than Star Trek. Though I can't imagine why you wouldn't want a "spock necklace"  :)
Super kitschy, right? I love them!
Have you made anything with comic books? I'm still trying to decide what to do with the rest of the comics, so I would love some suggestions!! Let me know what you think...
