Welcome once again to Shelf Porn! This week’s shelves were submitted by David Doub, publisher of Dusk Comics, who shares his collection of manga, graphic novels and more.

If you’d like to contribute to Shelf Porn, it’s easy — just send your photos and write-up to jkparkin@yahoo.com. We received a few submissions after our plea last week, but we could still use more.

And now let’s hear from David …

*****

My Name is David Doub and I’m the Publisher for Dusk Comics. I’ve been reading and collecting comics since I was 12 years old when I discovered comics in the spinner rack at the 7-11 in Hillsborough Ft.

The bulk of my collection are in long boxes currently in storage because of a moving homes. I honestly don’t know how many single issue comics I have. But all that is out at this point are Graphic Novels, Manga, Anime DVD/VHS.

In the first 3 pictures you can see my one bookcase that mainly has manga from a bunch of Clamp ones to some in raw Japanese. Also the bottom shelf is my whole collection of Heavy Metal Magazine from the 1990s to current.

The next 4 pictures are of my anime VHS tapes. I’ve actually had to buy extra new VHS players for fear they won’t be around any more. Also some of the Anime is currently out of print so the only form you get them in is VHS. Also when DVDs hit big, VHS became dirt cheap and I’m all about the cheap. I actually had to get rid of a bunch of duplicates because I was buying so many tapes in bulk I’d get a lot of dupes. I think some old fan sub copies are still in this bookcase.

The next 3 pictures are my anime DVDs and boxsets. Mixed in with the anime DVDs, is most of the current DC Superhero DVDs and some big VHS box sets of Xena (I still love that show).

And the last 4 pictures are my Graphic Novels, More Manga and various Japanese Novels. I was enjoying Light Novels like Slayers the Faust Collection from Del Ray, but I’m currently hooked on any book by the Viz Label Haikasoru. By the way, Battle Royale is a much better book than it is a manga. Also since most of my American comics are single issues, I still haven’t made a big switch into Graphic Novels. Basically I got collections of series that were hard to collect now days. There is some themes in there, like I totally got hooked on the Dark Horse Omnibuses. And I must give a shout out to Adam Warren and his GN Series – Empowered.

And to complete the Nerdism of it all, the bottom of these shelves has RPG books. Mostly showing are Warhammer Fantasy and 40k.

And yes I took a copy of the British edition of my own comic, Dusk, so there is a hidden plug.

You can Buy Dusk Vol 1 and 2 on Amazon.
