Bunk Mates

I turned this image into a fridge magnet for sale at the Prism Comics booth at the San Diego Comic-Con last week.
.
But I couldn’t decide what color the background should be. So, before the show, I posted four variations on Facebook and asked friends for their opinions.
.
This one above was the favorite, but a strong second was this one with the rust brown background. (See below.)
.
And the magnet? It sold well. Thanks for all the help everyone!
