League - Deposit
Out Of Stock!
We will notify you when this product becomes available.
Do your collection justice.
We make them when we purchase: loose collections of heroes, banded together, describing something more than their individual parts.
Forged to a single purpose, The League was designed to hold comics. No more, no less. Card catalog hardware on every deep drawer lets you name them: Action Comics to Xxxenophile, containing heroes from The Atom to Wolverine.
Give them a headquarters worthy of heroes. Give them The League.
Please note that while custom sizes are available, we do not build the League overly high-- firstly to avoid a top-heavy scenario in our furniture, and secondly because part of the function of the piece involves being able to sort through your collection.
If a League were 4 bays high, most would find this to be at eye level-- not the best for sorting as the drawers do not remove. Also the leverage of a full drawer at that height makes the unit a possible tip hazard.
Every League includes:
- Choice of 6 sizes
- Choice of 3 configurations per size
- Choice of wood
- Conversion varnish
- A Geek Chic Valet*
*The Geek Chic Valet is your geek furniture expert and advocate, here to help you make informed decisions as you optimize your order after placing your deposit.
CHOOSING YOUR SIZE
The League is measured not in feet, but in bays. When you choose your size, the League can be as small as 2 bays tall by 3 wide, or as large as 3 tall by 5 wide.
Open the LEAGUE PRICING GUIDE and on the first page you will see the Size Guide matrix and each sizes associated cost. The cost of the included features are based on the size you choose.
Reading the guide:
- The dimensions with the white background indicate the number of bays.
- The dimensions with the grey background indicate the full dimensions.
Your Valet will assist you with making sure you get the size the will fit your space and most importantly your collection!
Geek Chic furniture is all hand-crafted from strong, straight-grained hardwoods, sourced from certified sustainable forests.
To help you choose, your Valet will send you a packet of wood samples for you to peruse in the natural light of your intended space.
These woods are included in pricing:

GEEK KNOWLEDGE: Stain? Not if we can help it!
FAS grade lumber is the top industry standard grade of lumber used for high-end furniture. Being the wood geeks we are, we have a created a specialty "Geek Chic grade" of even higher quality lumber that does not need to be stained. (Although you may add-on stain should you choose.) All the images you see on this website are not stained unless specifically stated. You are seeing the quality of our lumber with a clear conversion varnish sealant-- no stain is covering up inferior grades of wood!
Conversion varnish is the clear finish most commonly used in the high-end furniture market. This unsung hero of the finish world is extremely durable, and rated for heavy use. Its a little tricky to apply, but it is worth it. Unlike lacquers and polyurethanes, conversion varnish is completely water-resistant, so you needn’t worry about water, wine or hot beverage stains!Conversion varnish is also a dream to clean-just use mild soap and water and a non-abrasive cloth. Gamer-proof!
GEEK KNOWLEDGE: Household Chemicals Tests show that conversion varnish has no visual effect from Household Ammonia, Vinegar, Lemon Juice, 50% Ethyl Alcohol, Red Ink, Oil Base Paint, Latex Emulsion Paint, VM&P Naphtha, Turpentine, Orange Crayon, Carbon Tetrachloride, 10% Sodium Carbonate Solution, Water, or Grease--Conversion varnish is a superior coating to any brand of varnish, lacquer, or polyurethane!
Comic drawers are 7 3/4" W x 11 1/2" H x 18 1/4" D.

Alexandria vs. League: Comics Storage
If you're looking for something less comics-specific, you may be interested in The Alexandria Codex.
Side-by-side comics comparison:
The Alexandria is 17'' deep overall. The drawers are modular (completely removable) and the comic drawers will hold 14 5/8'' of comics.
The League is 20 1/2'' deep overall. The drawers are on drawer slides that fully extend (you can reach your entire collection) and the drawers will hold 16 3/4'' of comics.
Price-wise, you will also save between $350-$1200 over the average comparable cost of an Alexandria filled with single drawers.
The Alexandria is a piece with its own solid, eloquent style, and it offers a versatility The League does not. The Alexandria comes empty; its modular drawers are fully removable. The drawers come in three different sizes and styles so you can easily reorganize or add on drawers over time. The Alexandria also gives you the option to have open shelves for books, games, display items, etc.... Whereas The League is a comics headquarters.
