Paint the boxes black and set aside to dry.
Cut out sections of comic books that you want to use. Use the lid from your container to trace around the comic book page you want to be on the lid. Cut it out, but cut it about 1/4-inch smaller than your tracing lines.
Apply a thin layer of decoupage to the back of the comics and let dry for five minutes.
When placing the comics onto the painted boxes, apply some Mod Podge to the center of the comics and press out any air bubbles. Work your way outward from the center, adding more Mod Podge to attach the rest of the comic.
Allow the comics to dry on the surface for about 20 minutes.
Cover the entire surface of the box with a generous, but not dripping, amount of Mod Podge. Let dry completely (overnight is best) before placing the lid on the container.
