Send Us Your Shelf Porn!

Welcome to another episode of Send Us Your Shelf Porn, where we take the photos you send us of your comic book collection and paste them here for everyone to gawk at. And no, we’re not changing the name of this column. Sorry.

This week Carl Jansson, a former manager of Comic Universe in Fountain Valley, CA. Before we begin, however, I want to thank everyone who’s sent in photos over the past week. The amount of interest I’ve received has truly been staggering, and I promise each and every one of you will get your day in the sun. So don’t fret if you haven’t heard back from me yet; you will, and soon. I promise.

And now let’s join Carl on a tour of his home …

These are most of my hardcovers, odd sized trades, and my collection of busts. They are on a hand made bookshelf on top of my writing desk in the living room. I started collecting trades more than monthlies while working at Borders Books a few years ago, and continued the trend while at Comic Universe. I just like the way they look on the shelf. My long boxes are in my closet where they are hard to get to, so trades just work better for me. Oh, and the Doktor Sleepless Plasma Globe Bust.

And here’s a better view of the busts, as well as an Action Comics page by Brad Walker given to me by the inker Livesay! The busts are of a few of my favorite characters.

This is one of four similar bookshelves located throughout the house. This one is mostly my Will Eisner library, oversized books, and assorted Doctor Who books. I am a big Doctor Who fan, as you will see a few pictures from now. Also, statues!

Here is the shelf on the opposite side of my TV from the last one. This is mostly trades, assorted by author. Lots of Alan Moore, Warren Ellis, etc. Astute viewers will see the Ev’ry Little Bug vinyl picture disk in the bottom right. I love me some Spirit/Eisner!

Here is a small side table/bookshelf next to my easy chair where I keep smaller sized books and trades, and across from that we see Doctor Who figures.

Close-up on the Doctor and friends. I have too many Daleks though.

Two of my favorite comics ever! Those covers are priceless!

This is a page from Day of Vengance by Justiniano and Livesay, two of my favorite modern creators.

An Atomics print, signed by Mike Allred and Alex Ross. I’m a huge Allred fan.

This is a small collection of regular, non-comic books. I have more in boxes somewhere, so it’ll fill up pretty quick.

Random trades, some organized, some not so much.

Lots of Madman, Metal Men, and The Spirit. See, obsessed with Allred.

Part of my Ultraman collection. I have a rather large one, for some reason. I just got really into Ultraman a few years ago, and then Dr. Who toys came along. I haven’t bought any Ultraman in a while now.

Toys, busts, and my CDs. (and dust, apparently)

And last, but not least, my Cloak & Dagger and Dr. Strange posters.

I love seeing things like this. A while back on CBR ( i think) there was a feature where it showed creators creating spaces and it was an awesome inspiration. I remember it having panoramic pictures.

Anyone else remember?

Anyways. Carl. Awesome selection! Benefits of being a LCS manager I suppose…

I spy a great Psychedelic Furs Vinyl in one of your pics! Awesome band, I actually just trekked out to NJ to see them live this weekend and they were amazing. Fantastic stuff you have indeed!

Wonderful collection displays!

Nice feature
But again, column still needs a name-change

I wanted to know how do I go about submitting my collection to you to post here?

Walter — email me at cmautnerATcomcastDOTnet

Love the pics, lots of cool stuff. What drew me to checking out your site was the last item, Cloak and Dagger and Dr. Strange posters, had both of these when I was younger, DR.Strange poster is amazing, you have any information on either. And I didn’t even know there were Dr. Who figs, go figure.
