I don’t that I’ve ever really seen comics stored like that – but I rather like it.

What is that huge statue with the wings under the case? Really cool looking.

Nice collection. I kind of like how those are stored too.

Nice collection. By the way, you may not want to store comics stacked like that if you care about condition. Long term it can cause spine roll. That is what I was taught when I worked in a comics shop long ago, anyway.

Good way to ruin a bunch of comics

What does “spine roll” mean? What if the comics are boarded?

Does that only happen to floppies or even binded comics should be upright instead of stacked?

Looks like these were taken on a camera phone…

I didn’t think about ‘spine roll’ and yeah, that would be a potential issue. But spine roll doesn’t ‘ruin’ comics; in this case, it may just indicate someone who’s treating comics as reading material, rather than as collectibles.

This is a nice collection of comics that are ruined. Also a camera is a camera a cell phone is for phone calls. Usually these are pretty good but this one really is bad. What is he trying to display here? A bunch of warped comics and dirty statues. No thanks !

Spineroll? More like eyeroll! Boards and bags will prevent that up to a point. If you’re out to read and not just make money on your comics, who gives a rat’s ass?!

And it’s a nice enough setup. I like the tall shelves filled with books. I like the way you can have a lot in a small space!

Nice! It looks like someone who really enjoyed the crap out of their collection.
Even though there’s not a lot or huge amount of money invested, their favorite pieces are on display, and it shows how they’ve set things up.
I also like the removed and framed covers. Sure it’s not a 4 foot framed poster behind glass, but it’s on display, and obviously something they like.
Good work guys!

@Sonny
I’ll be looking forward to see your collection Sonny, It must be really impressive for you to need come bashing on this one for not living up to your standards…

As for the owner of the collection I have to say I like it, it’s always nice to see a loved collection! Thanks for sharing!

Spine roll! Other than that love the transformers masterpieces! Cool setup.

Nice collection, looks like a nice cozy room to chill in. I like your rollerblades as well :)

Hie guys. My name is Andy from Malaysia. I’m the one who posted pics of my collection. I wanna thank you guys from the bottom of my heart because you liked my collections and there are some who was being quite critical. Anyway I appreciate for those of you who liked it, and I know it’s not much. But I’m happy with my collection. Comic prices here in Malaysia is expensive. What I normally do is I’ll go to the local comic store once a month. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Cool man, its neat seeing global collections, and I was curious about the Malyasia thing. I know a few people from Micronesia and they were fairly limited in what they could get.
I think I have half those Spawn figures, and the Transformers shelf I’m jealous of.

What’s the point of keeping them bagged and boarded if you’re going to store them that way? Just keep them loose, it’d probably even look nicer. The cabinets of figures are decent still. Good stuff!

I dig your Transformers collection!

You guys would kill me if you saw how I stored mine :P As long as they are loved it does not matter. Nice collection you got there fellah.

Great collections! I also dream of having a huge wooden book shelf to put my entire graphic novels (still placed in several boxes). Keep it up!

This is tan aberration from the series. I agree with the above that there are dirty statues and shelves, the comics stacks are making me crazy, and the collection of busts and figs is pretty standard. Most of these are truly epic mancaves that are well taken care of and organized with great stuff. This looks like a guys collection in his dirty bedroom. I don’t think it it too hard to dust off your shelves and vacuum your floor before sending in pictures of your cool area.

Nice collection! Lots of great stuff in there.

@Mike Whetzel – that’s the “Wings of Redemption” Spawn figure from McFarlane Toys.

Some nice stuff. I always like seeing collections from other parts of the world.Its cool to see what people from other areas are into. As for the stacking them up,Go for it dude. They your books you paid for them,do what you like. I quit bagging and boarding mine and haven’t looked back!

Really cool collection, i stack my comics like that too, but its because i hate buying supplies like bags, boards,boxes etc when i go in a comic shop. that apocalypse statue is sweet! Thanks for sharing.

Ruined a lot of comics to frame their wrap around covers

@sonny.

dont be a dick.

“To each his own.” Andy, great display and collection. Ignore the bashers. Waste of time and energy. To each his own.

Thanks ENrique

Awesome collection. Handful of those statues are custom right?

I love that Wolverine civil war statue but AFAIK they only released a bust.

Big fan of Ramos stuff since Crimson.

As for how you store your collection who cares, i echo Enrique’s sentiment with to each there own. Its not like any comic out in the 30 years is worth anything.
