Do you have a specific chair where you sit and read your comics? We hope so, and we hope it's really comfortable, and helps to easily transport you to far-off, amazing worlds. But most of all, we truly hope it looks like this.

This is legendary writer/producer David Mandel's custom-made Steve Ditko comic art chair. As a showrunner and executive producer on Veep, with credits including Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, and SNL, Mandel is a true King of Comedy. So he deserves a proper throne, right?

At last week's Star Wars Celebration, we caught up with Mandel to ask him all about his beautiful chair, which comes courtesy of art collector John Butler, and was made with scans from Mandel's original comic art...

Pretty cool, right? Ditko is of course a titan of the comics industry who helped create Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, among other stalwarts. His drawings obviously make for one fine chair, but which artist's work would you most want to adorn your throne?
