Send Us Your Shelf Porn

Justingonzalezshelfporn

This week on Send Us Your Shelf Porn, we’re getting a glimpse at a rather focused collection, with the potential to add to it via the online suggestion box that is our good ole comments section.

Today’s photos hail from one Justin Gonzalez in Brooklyn, NY. As the above photo suggests, Justin is a big Batman fan and has structured his budding collection around the caped crusader. He’s on the lookout for additions though, so if you know of a stellar Batman book that isn’t on these shelves, let him know in the comments below.

And don’t forget to let me know about your shelf porn. If you’ve got a stellar, or even mediocre collection you’d like to share, don’t be shy! Snap some pics and send them to me via cmautnerATcomcastDOTnet.

And now here’s the part where I let Justin take over …

This is my small, but very theme oriented shelf. I am only 20 years old. I live in Brooklyn, New York, and there isn’t much in the way of “geek” factor here. But I do plan on vastly growing this collection by the end of summer. I just started my shelf, and think it is pretty good for now. The obvious theme is Batman (duh). I threw some movies in there just so I don’t feel like a loser for having an empty shelf. But I look at it as half full. The centerpiece is the picture of my wife and I, although it was not my idea, it was my wife’s. But I think that it makes it nice, especially with the Joker, and Harley Quinn Heroclix in front of the picture.

I tried to separate the villains and heroes on the top, but it was a bit one sided. The books are the basics. Absolute Dark Knight, Hush, and Kingdom Come. Arkham Asylum, Joker. Long Halloween, etc. etc. Batman R.I.P. isn”t prominently displayed because I liked the arc per se, but it’s just a badass pic. (Along with Killing Joke, which helps balance the Hero and Villain sides.) Perhaps my favorite piece there would have to be the Nightwing figure, but the complete B:TAS is a very close second.

I hope that you like it, and by all means, if there are any tips on what I should get to make it a more complete, kickassery version, do tell.

Batman: Two-Face/Scarecrow Year One. Written by the great Mark Sable.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Batman_comics

Check out the Modern Batman section for ideas.

Jim Lee Batman Hush figures or Statues.

Batman: Year One
Batman: Broken City
Batman: Gothic

Does he know that that picture of him and his wife says “Alawys” instead of “Always”?

Batman and the Mad Monk
Batman and the Monster Men
Batman: Black and White
Batman: Dark Detective
Batman: Fortunate Son
Batman: Thrillkiller

Batman the Black Glove – IS A MUST

“Yo, we hear you dig Batman. So we put a batman in your batman you can batman while you batman”

Sorry easy joke, had to be done.

You sure like the Bat-man-o-verse!!!

That is all. ;D

The term “shelf porn” is just stupid
Come up with something better

There’s a limited edition set of Long Halloween that comes with the book, and exclusive Batman and Joker figures.

I like Shelf Porn, but might I also suggest Shelf Gasm, since this is really an explosion of the passion that is geek. And, uh, sometimes it gets everywhere.

I agree that the name Shelf Porn should be changed.
I dont find it offensive myself, but it would be inappropriate if some 14 year old was the featured collector.

I might participate if I were not too lazy to swiffer my bookcases. So maybe next year haha

I’ll also add that “Shelf Porn” is inappropriate and just plain juvenile. It needs to be changed.

I like the idea of the feature, as it always fun to see how other’s display their prized collectibles, but the term “shelf porn” has GOT to go. It is stupid. Change the title.

Always comedy gold. Even funnier now people are complaining about the feature’s title.

Alawys?

Shelf-Porn? Uh. Guess I’m not up on the latest geek lingo.

Please keep the name shelf porn. Also this collection is pretty weak. My closet next to my comic room has more stuff. I’m not 20 and I don’t live in the space deprived hell-hole that is NYC. I’m sure there are some mongo colllections out there. Let’s see those. Most of my stuff is not on display but if rows of white long boxes gets you off I’ve got some major shelf porn for you.

As far as real Batman shelf porn where is the Dark Knight Returns S&N hardcover, Batman 30′s to the 70′s HC, and the Greatest Batman and Joker Stories Ever Told HCs. When all your best Batman stuff is still available from amazon.com it’s not really drool worthy. Also displaying Batman Hush just kind of ruins the mood for me.

I really want to see a huge over the top WildC.A.T.S. collection. Sad, crazy, pathetic and wonderful all at once. Original cell animation from the crappy cartoon, alternate covers signed by Brandon Choi, original art, all the lousy toys; the multiple printings of the Alan Moore issues in TPBs, I want to see someone who has it all.

how about… “Shelfish-ly Devoted To…” as a name to change to?

Excellent list Josh, I’d also like to add Batman: Year 100 by Paul Pope

EDIT: I mean “Shelf-ishly Devoted To…”

I actually came here hoping to see a shelf full of porn…

we’re all crazy. did you see the I carly with the kid that collected Peewee babies?…she broke up with him.
