Evoking a great feeling of nostalgia, the Classic Comic Book Spinner Rack Kickstarter offers a sturdy, well-constructed storage device. They mention extra-large ball-bearings to ensure a smooth spin, and it comes in either black or white. It's already funded, so sit back an await your storage rack.

I'm so accustomed to seeing such racks in stores, it never occurred to me that it would be a great juxtaposition in your game room or office. It fits a variety of sizes, so It seem capable of displaying gaming magazines in your game room. Lots of possibilities. Seeing such an iconic display outside it's typical haunts strikes me as a grand idea.

At home, I can see this as a wonderful conversation starter that doubles as an organizer. I'd love to put all my recent purchases into such a a rack making them easy to find and read unti they go into more permanent storage of sorts. Check out the Kickstarter campaign and see if this spinner rack would be a good display option for your comics, gaming mags... or both!
